Who is right? Both have valid claims, but this article is going to explore the positive side effects of technology. So, here are four ways that technology makes the lives of the people superior than before.
More KnowledgeableNo is trying to say that the societies of the past were stupid, but there is no doubt that they had access to less information. As technology gets better, the entire world begins to learn more about how it works. Whether it is how the other half live or how the solar system works, we know more now than we did in the 70's and 80's, and the reason that is the case is technology.
Without the right technology, the relevant people wouldn’t have been able to make these discoveries. As technology gets more superior, that will only increase in the future. Although you might say that is a bad thing, it is a positive side effect in most persons’ eyes.
Higher SecurityGone are the days where people can leave their door open such is the distrust in society in 2016. Almost everyone that you come across is a potential thief for one reason or another. Of course, that isn’t the case as most people aren’t thieves or criminals. However, there is a seemingly larger proportion of the community that is ready to grab their opportunities.

Thanks to better medical equipment, it is much easier to keep people alive, which is a good thing because most people want to live for as long as possible. additionally, technology makes us more aware of what we need to do to stay healthy. Most people know just how damaging cigarettes and alcohol are now, for example, whereas they didn’t understand in the past.
Stay In TouchThe world is a small place due to technology. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world because you can contact anyone free of charge. All you need is a Skype account and an internet connection. A sense of family and community is an important part of everyone’s life. So, tech is helping people to stay in touch and adding value to their lives.
There are plenty more reasons, but these are the most important.
