Some people believe the range of technology available to individuals today is increasing the gap between the poor and the rich. Others think it is having an opposite effect. Discuss these points of view. What is your opinion?
The gap between the rich and the poor has been a problem that human beings put efforts to solve. One approach is to develop various technologies and techniques. Automobiles, for instance, are supposed to free those who use their physical power to move objects or people. However, the developments of technologies are said to increase the gap.
Those who claim that technologies have played important roles in decreasing the gaps between the have and the have-not are correct, only partly, because they see the issue with too enthusiastic eyes. They pay much attention to the power of technologies but seldom focus on the social elements that keep technologies from being truly positive to human well being. For example, the mobile phones as a new technology should greatly emancipate people from low effective paper and pencil pattern of communication. However, this technology has not played its supposed roles because mobile phones are totally controlled by the few haves in the society. In China, it is the CMCC which is believed to be profiteer without much human nature.
However, those who entirely attribute the increasing gaps between the rich and the poor to the development of technologies are also not convincing. They, like those discussed above, fail to see that it is not technologies but the distribution systems of the social resources that account much more. In any human societies, it is not the resources per se, but the political, economic, and even religious fabrics, that finally dictate how many and however poor or rich its population is.
In conclusion, the development of technology bears no direct cause-effect relationship with the gap between the rich and the poor.编辑推荐》》
