There are various effects of technology. It has facilitated the growth of a leisure class and assisted in the development of more developed economies, particularly the current global economy. Numerous technological processes harm the ecosystem of Earth by exhausting natural resources and producing undesirable byproducts known as pollution. Innovations have always had an impact on a society’s values and generated fresh concerns about the ethics of technology. The emergence of the idea of efficiency in terms of human output is one example, as are the difficulties in bioethics.
There are philosophical differences on the use of technology, including whether it degrades or enhances the state of humanity. Neo-Luddism, anarcho-primitivism, and other reactionary movements decry the pervasiveness of technology, claiming it harms the environment and alienates people; transhumanism and techno-progressivism, on the other hand, see continued technological advancement as improving society and the human condition.
