The Internet is GOOD, The Internet is EVIL

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 29, 2010, 6:47 AM

Hi everybody,

here is a nice discussion for you. The Internet is the greatest/worst invention of the 20th century. Let me know what you think!

:bulletwhite: The Internet is GOOD because

  • People can have fun (porn, games, dating service).
  • Data exchange is rapid (emails, file sharing).
  • We can make friends and share pictures, videos and informations easily (social networks, online communities, news groups, forums, blogs).
  • It makes business successful, offers many ways to earn money, advertisement reaches customers around the world.
  • It makes every day life easier (online shopping, online banking, job-seeking, house-hunting...).
  • Every possible information can be found, news go around the world within minutes.
  • It makes education, enlightenment and liberation for repressed and poor people possible.
  • Everybody can be famous (Youtube, DeviantART)!

:bulletblack: The Internet is EVIL because

  • It opens the floodgates to scam, trickery, viruses, spyware, phishing, slander, data abuse/theft, cyber-mobbing and spread of misinformations.
  • It supports criminal activities (child-porn/abuse, manuals for making a bomb, terror calls, incitement to murder etc.)
  • The flood of random, unmanageable, useless and superficial informations fries your brain.
  • There is no privacy protection. Someone can lose their reputaion, integrity, credibility and prestige.
  • It's addictive. You are in danger to replace the real world with a virtual world.
  • You waste your time with useless activities.

:star: Make your vote

  • Mood: Apprehensive

I think than nothing is really bad or good.

The only thing that makes it bad or good is the way you use it.

For example, someone can use a knife in order to eat a piece of bread or use it to kill. But this dosen't mean we should stop using knives, because some people use it with a stupid or bad way.

Exactly what I've have mentioned in the past. There will always be a negative for every 'good' thing and a positive for every 'bad' thing.

You forgot another important one at why the internet is bad, spending so much time on it, doesn't only make you become lazy and weak but reading so much on it ruins your eye sight.

Yes, that, too. But it also ruins the classical media like newspapers and magazines.

But then again.. less trees are being cut down.. so it's a 50-50 kind of thing..

You have a point here.

The internet itself is benign it is people who sway the odds in favor of any sort of judgment.

I agree with *MPMG in that the internet is really nothing more than another tool & everything depends on how you use it. A shovel can be used to create the most beautiful garden you've ever seen & it can also be used to murder someone. The same with a knife. It can be used to stab someone as well as be used to help sculpt a classical state that with stand centuries & inspire millions of art students. :shrug:

So it's all in how it's used.

"People can have fun (porn, games, dating service)."
