    Ted Kaczynski said technology would ruin us, that we would become slaves to it.

    Master those are really interesting quotes. I think that might be a slightly different angle on it though. All of those people who made those predictions that there would never be any technology for example there will never be an internet be on 1996 or apple will never make a phone etcetera Etc all those people were wrong in predicting that technology would not expand and evolve. However what I am saying is that that technology which has expanded any evolved to today has ruined Humanities ability to make eye contact and to have face-to-face communication. These young kids now do not know how to solve any problems on their own without consulting their smartphones. These young kids now cannot have a conversation for more than 2 or 3 minutes because their attention spans have been reduced to that of a fly or a bird. No one can actually read more than two pages at a time. You can ask teachers all around the world if teenagers nowadays can sit still without the smartphone induced attention deficit disorder and if they can sit still and actually read like we used to do when we were teenagers for example a 300-page book. These kids cannot do that anymore. That is just one example

    I've gone outside during break at work and seen everyone on the patio looking at phones not talking. It's quite odd. Don't blame the phone, phones don't make people socially inept, people make people socially inept.

    Two points jump out at me right there:

    Number 1 how can you ask for someone to be banned and then the next day asked for the ban to be lifted?

    Number two how can you use the at sign for a father and his son?

    It's kind of like an alcoholic, around the age we hit puberty we are supposed to turn to our friends and family for help, some folks turn to alcohol. It's the same with social media now, when we get likes or messages it releases endorphins, the same as drugs and alcohol makes us feel. There's heaps of research on it.

    In regards to technology enhancing our lifestyles it has, but it has also made us a slave to it. The thing that was supposed to help us now controls us. Ever sat a a red traffic light, early hours of the morning, no other cars around? Did you obey the technology and wait, how long did you wait?

    On a bike I always go through a red light if there is no traffic and pedestrians.
