Would we be better off without technology? Chris Hallam weighs up the many pros and cons of modern life
Hurrah for technology! Let’s face it: it’s great. Without technology, you would probably be sitting in a darkened cave now, listening to spiders scurrying about like some prehistoric Robert the Bruce dreaming of some Raquel Welch-like cave girl. Assuming you could even read, you wouldn’t be reading this. You wouldn’t have the internet for one thing. For another, without technology as a subject, this article wouldn’t be here for you to read anyway. You’d probably be reading one about woolly mammoths or something instead.
