Yentis 1 Igor Yentis WRT 102.42 Paul Dyson 3/31/05 In the world today we see the technological advances all around us. We went from using the wheel for horse carriages, to using it on tanks, we went as far as using it on an airplane to fly on for the first time. It was the Progress of man for such a natural event to occur, destined or not it happened. As we moved on to new items that were thought up more easier, more convenient for the home of the civilized man, we became dependent on them more and more. The more technology the more reliant on it we would become. It was an urge to have the newest technology, maybe it was a love of it from the each of us or maybe because our society wanted us to. In America as of today 40% percent of the people cannot we cannot even go a day without watching television and 99% have one in their house if they have children ages 0-6. Dependency on technology will soon catch up with us and then we might unfortunately suffer because of it. I don’t believe that technology is bad right now but there will be dire situations in the future. Progress is best defined by Webster's Dictionary as, "a forward or onward movement (as to an objective or to a goal) or a better condition."(p. 254). Through progress the world is still working to achieve a better life for its entire people. Through the foundations of technological use.

Yentis 2 Winston Churchill once said, Everyday you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever- improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb. (3) I believe Churchill is trying to say how the world will never be satisfied with its progress and will always want more. As in the case of any technological equipment, it has always been improved over the years countless times. The people of the world are always looking for a better life for themselves which makes the world unite in some small way and progress as a whole. For example a team is only as strong as its weakest link, and if the weakest player doesn't have the drive to work harder and get better then the team won't be as successful. In the terms of the average American society, if the little factory man doesn't want to work harder for more opportunity in life, the American society won't be as strong. In order to live a better life than we have already been living, one must progress day after day. We, as people, progress like a tree growing high on a mountain top. If we become anxious and grow too fast without first properly rooting ourselves, we become susceptible to being torn up and whipped by the winds of agitation. If, however we are content to grow slow and establish a proper foundation our roots will be strong and we will enjoy a long life and a lofty view.
