With the advent of industralisation and modern technology, people’s living standards have been promoted to a new level. People’s life has become more convinient and advanced due to the introduction of different modern inventions such as Internet, public transport, globalisation and so on. However, it causes negative effects at the same time. From my perspective, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
Modern inventions have brought about more benefits than we expected. Firstly, internet enables people to have access to abundant resources and it has been widely used in different aspects such as education. For instance, every student has different intellectual capacity. Therefore intellient students maybe tied to a slow advance in their study due to others’ incapacity of understanding. In this way, students could progress in their aquisition of knowledge at their own pace using computer rather than learning from teachers.
Secondly, public transport has made people’s daily life very convinient. Compared with the old time while people took days to travel from one place to another, it only takes few hours for people to reach their destination by public transport. Thirdly, globalisation is now playing a pivotal role in the development of economy and technology. It not only promotes culture exchange between different countries, but also enables people worldwide get to know each other better.
On the other hand, environment has been negatively affected as a result of the excessive exploration of natural rescources. Air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution in industrial process and so on is deteriorating our planet on a daily basis. In addition to that, people are now living a sedentary lifestyle due to the convinient public transport and use of internet. They do not have to take one step outside their room to get everything done by computer. Consequently, they will get heart diseases, obesity that is commonly seen nowdays. Moreoever, culture assimilation caused by globalisation is becoming more and more evident with time.
In conclusion, the benefits outwiegh its downsides and we should continue to promote modern inventions. In the meantime, the government should find counter measures to address these problems mentioned and overcome its difficiencies.
