Advantages and Disadvantages of Science and Technology

The Science and Technology have great effects in our society.



Globalization is such a commonly used term in the twentieth century. It simply means that the world has become affected economically, socially, politically and culturally through the advances of technology, transportation and communication. We cannot deny the facts that Science and Technology have positive and negative effects in our Society.
To begin with, globalization has contributed to the world's economies in many beneficial ways. The Advances in science and technology are allowed businesses to easily cross over territorial boundary lines, makes our life easier, it helps us organize our daily activities, our job can be done faster, easier to communicate other people in other places in just a second, helps us to understand other culture and society better and lots more and the Disadvantages of Science and Technology are can be easily manipulated by irresponsible persons, we'll be too independent in technology and without it we will fell hopeless, it affects our health and lifestyles, sometimes people can easily invade our privacy like hacking the systems and many more. The vast improvements made in the field of medicine have served to lengthen our life expectancy and to reduce the rate of infant mortality. The discovery of mechanization, in transportation, trains, planes and motor vehicle makes us easily go to other places easily. The invention of computers has assisted the process of calculation in laboratories but science has been responsible for pollution and has given us the nuclear bomb which threatens our very existence like what happened in nagasaki and hiroshima in world war 2. But what i can say is that the science is not the fault of all of that but what are the people's intention to use science in their bad motivation in their lives. In generalization, as far as what I learned or I should say as far as what I know Science and Technology have great affects in our society and community like advantages and disadvantages of our society but it can only occur when a person using it use it in good purposes or bad purposes. Just always remember that we people have the responsibilities in our own society and community.
