I'm tired of technophobes whining about technology

Seriously, I cannot understand why people think the technology that exists in the 21st century is somehow bad for us. Really, it can't help but feel sad for people that say we don't need smartphones (or cellphones for that matter), Internet, computers, etc.

Their only "defense", "We survived just fine without it." Yes, we survived just fine without a lot of things, it doesn't mean that is a good thing. We also survived just fine without running water, cooling systems, cars, electricity, schools, jobs, etc. Does it mean we should get rid of all of those because we can survive without them? Of course not. Yet I still see this argument being brought up all the time and it has no basis whatsoever.

It's very simple. Don't want a smartphone? Don't get one. Don't want fast Internet? Don't buy it. Don't want a computer? Don't get one. Just because you want to live in the good ol' days back when everything was simple and plain doesn't mean everyone else does. So, as a courtesy for those living in 2011 and not 1889, please shut the **** up about technology you don't want.

What are your thoughts on this subject?

Who really needs technology? Who needs e-mail & texting? They're so unresponsive. I say bring back pigeon mail.

Meh. I don't have a smart phone and still survive. But the funny thing is that once some of these people get the new technology they really love it and can't see how they lived without it.

I don't have a computer, Internet, or cable. I'm perfectly fine.

But yeah, most people don't like to adapt to change. 'Tis human nature I suppose.
