If you travel back in time just 100 years ago, computers and televisions did not exist, radio development was in its infancy, the first massively produced automobile (the Model-T) was only starting to become available to the public, and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity was still in formation. Penicillin’s medicinal traits had not been fully discovered yet; there were no vaccines available for childhood diseases that crippled millions around the globe, and there was no link established between an activity like smoking and deadly diseases like cancer. Technology has illuminated the world in ways that were unimaginable just a century ago.
However, rapidly advancing technology also carries its own risks. A century ago, one bomb could not destroy an entire city; now, we must be very careful that atomic weapons are never used again in warfare. The Internet makes our lives more interconnected, but less private. Television programming if abused (reality television specifically) can lead to a narrowing of societal values. The automobile’s ability to emit massive amounts of carbon dioxide and other pollutants is currently causing global temperatures to rise, and we may not have the ability to arrest that trend. Therefore, technology is a double-edged sword; it carries great promise but also high risk to its users.
