Technology has eroded our value.
Good day mr chairman, panel of judges, accurate time keeper and my fellow audience/readers.
I’m writing to support the motion which states “Technology has eroded out values ”
I believe we have a
moral obligation to
increase the power and
presence of technology
in the world, but not
everyone believes that
— to put it mildly. Many believe the opposite:
that we have a moral obligation to reduce the
power and presence of technology. I want to fully
understand those arguments so I am collecting
them in order to confront them as well as I can. I
am interested in valid reasons to diminish
technology, but also in mythical reasons as well.
Things people believe about the technium which
may not be true, but motivate them. Here is my
first cut. Please comment on alternative reasons I
I think there are four basic arguments against
technology, with many sub-reasons. In summary:
Technology should be reduced as much as possible
because it is contrary to nature, and/or to
humanity, and/or to technology itself and finally,
because it is a type of evil and thus is contrary to
Contrary to Nature. Technology is in opposition to
nature. It is produced at the expense of nature
because it destroys ecological habitats. Its steel is
mined from the earth; its lumber is taken by
cutting down forests; its rare metals dug from the
ground; its plastics sucked from oil and then
burned into the air. Its factories pave over
wetlands or meadows. Worse this destruction of
natural habitat can extinguish species, an act
which cannot be undone (at least not yet). Even if
technology halted the destruction of natural
habitat, the fact that we consume large amounts
of energy causes a disruption in the atmosphere,
which alters the climate. The scale of technology
is simply so large that almost no matter how
environmentally benign it may seem, its sheer size
overwhelms natural cycles.
Contrary to Humans. Technology erodes human
5) I wish I Had Told The
Jack Luke-paredi, Grade 4, All Saints Anglican School Short Story 2012
A stench like no oher wafted through my nose. It was hideous. I was gaging, coughing and spluttering, trying to breathe in fresh air but to no avail. The putrid smell was over whelming. My pet cactus was withering in front of my very eyes. I used the last of my energy to see were the odour was coming from. I was shocked. My feet were frozen to the ground. I couldn’t move. A monstrosity, hairy, lumpy, disgusting, oaf of a mouse stood in the corner of my bedroom. Stomp!!! Crash!!! Wallop!!! The mouse carelessly crushed toy after toy as it headed towards me. I closed my eyes ready for death……
A wicked squeaky tone came from the mouse, “You may pass your bedroom door but if you have ever told a lie, you must die.” I stood panic-stricken. I had once told a little white lie, would this mean I was doomed. The thought whizzed around my petrified mind. I was speechless. The agitated mouse raised his eyebrow and growled, “I will ask you one simple question. Have you ever lied?” I opened my mouth to protest but quickly thought the better of it. I changed my foolish thoughts. I promptly shouted NO! but then regretted my impulsive actions. A shiver ran down my spine. Was that the best move????
The mouse bared its fangs. Its claws scraped on the rusty door hinges. I could clearly see what he was thinking. How should he die?!?!? I knew my lighting reactions had doomed me!!! I felt pity and shame deep in my heart. The mouse began to scratch its chin. His thoughts were deep in progress. I clenched my teeth determined not to let the fuming mouse see my fear. I looked deep into the mouse’s eyes. They were sparkling with evilness. He knew a meal was waiting.
I just wish I had owned up to Dad about stealing the sugar. The temptation was completely irresistible as my sweet smelling fingers clawed in and out of the jar. If only I could rewind time and tell the truth this time. That way the wicked mouse would not be scampering in my room foraging for the microscopic grains of sugar I had accidently dropped in my guilty rampage. I lay cuddled up in the corner of my room sobbing, clinging tightly to my teddy bear. Cries of help to Dad were left with empty responses. The headphones were glued to his ears while his eyes stared mesmerised by the flickering of the television screen. The warm sensation of sweet sugar crystals lingered around on my taste buds but quickly vanished as guilt overpowered my ever sense.
I had to confess the truth regardless of the consequences that lay ahead. I silently crept towards my open door, tiptoeing to the gaping space. I was just at the EXIT to my foul smelling bedroom, when a gush of wind slammed the door shut. Luck really wasn’t falling my way. Vicious fangs with over loading poison filled my blood stream. Claws scraped vigorously. It was agonising, my tender skin slowly being destroyed. I had never experienced such excruciating pain in all my life. Blood splattered everywhere but only one thought whizzed through my head. I wished I had been brave and told the complete and utter truth. Razor sharp blade like teeth munched away at my tender flesh. Screams ran through my entire body. Its eyes were savage for blood. Two long incisors scraped the blood he was longing to drink. A tail whipped into my fragile back. High pitch yells for mercy bounced of my bed room walls. It was the slowest agonising death one could ever experience. My body was crumbling away as I muttered my final words. If only I had told the truth………..
