Like a knife, it is done to cut and accelerate slice food cooking for people, but it can also be used to kill people, and you can not ban the use of knives to stop the killing. And so you can not blame computers for the problems that caused it may be because it is the people who use them that caused the problem. It has disadvantages and advantages to be taken into consideration
But the problem is not computer technology itself .; the problem is the people who use it. Computer technology is generally good because it can bring when used properly good at a lot but can do great damage if used unwisely.
People have choices about how they use the resources of the earth, and that choice will determine how certain materials will affect the people, whether it is good or bad.
