Modern Man Has Become Slave To Machines And Gadgets


I am earning money writing articles like these, you can also do the same: join here

There was a time when man used to be self-dependent for all activities of his daily living. A pair of arms and legs used to be his closest friends and assistants to perform his errands. But as the time passed by, man used his wit and power and invented various easygoing gadgets to perform his work without putting any pressure on his shoulders. Invention of machines and gadgets has made his life so easy that at a very slow pace he started becoming dependent of machines for everything. In the past, man used to perform lots of activities by himself, but gradually tables turned and machines ruled his heart, brain, as well as body, and then his whole world.

The slavery can be defined through the following points:

1. The day begins with the alarm of clock (a machine), instead of the first rays of sun or call of a cock.

2. Now while sitting with the family or friends or while traveling in a train or bus, people can be seen talking on cellphones instead of talking to the persons sitting besides them. If they are not talking on the phones, they can be seen pressing the buttons of cellphones for gaming, SMS, or songs, etc. Some prefer to listen to songs over the cellphone.

3. If man needs any information regarding something, he would trust machine more than the human. He would not ask or trust on any human regarding that, but he would trust Internet for the information.

4. Even while operating television, stereo, or VCD, etc., no one could live without remote control.

5. Persons owning two-wheelers or four-wheelers cannot go without it and if they have one brand, they would love to think, dream, and plan for the next model.

6. One cannot sit without cooler or air-conditioner in home, office, or car, as they have become habitual of it. Whereas in the past, our forefather even spent their lives even without fans, and NO DOUBT THEY HAD A HEALTHIER LIVES THAN US.

7. For washing clothes, washing machine is a must; otherwise, it would be a very difficult task to be performed manually.

8. PREGNANT FEMALES are also assessed by machines; i.e., ultrasound machines, etc.

9. Now-a-days, ELECTRIC CREMATION is also being performed by the machines.

10. Even for money transactions, people choose Internet Banking or ATMs. Very few people could tell you when they had last been to their banks.


Man's so much dependence on machines has made them listless and obese. As most of the work is done by machines, there is less physical activity, that results in obesity, sickness, and loss of immune power. Today's man cannot be considered as stronger as the man of the past. Even the kids can be seen flabby and having less stamina just because of the machines they use for all the work that could be done manually.

Man has become captive behind the bars of machines all around him. One can imagine the situation If There Is A Power Failure; it seems the life will come to a standstill, as machines need electricity and without electricity there will be no work at all.

Исполняя оригинальный «академический» арт-рок, «Автограф» пошел по пути «King Crimson» и «Procol Harum», заключив творческий союз с М. Пушкиной - профессиональной поэтессой и автором текстов (ранее сотрудничавшей с Високосным летом), сумевшей точно подобрать необходимую музыкантам авторскую интонацию, создать интегрированный образ личности, от лица которой велось повествование, тем самым многократно усилив художественную ценность музыкального материала.

Chandana on September 13, 2012:

And I also like to say that " Change is nature of life, but mean while even challenge should be the aim of life. So we have to challenge the changes around us, but not to change the challenges". ' Man versus Machines' as we see the above lines, I can say that man has changed the challenges, but he did not challenged the changes...

Chandana on September 13, 2012:

Its very nicely explained which you selected the topic of Technology has made man slaves..But I say its all the weakness of man towards technology and there is an advantage as well as dis-advantage too, but both(advantage-dis advantage) is done by man itself....

sanil on August 30, 2012:

very useful essay.

klefenz on August 17, 2012:

Humanity has always depended on technology. When homo sapiens sapiens (modern human, the species we all belong to) first appeared, tools like knives, spears, clothing and the use of fire to cook food already existed, technology is the unique adaptation of humans, prehistoric men (of modern human species) were nothing without their tools.

Try to kill a deer with your fists, cut its meat with nails and teeth, and eat it raw.

the advisor on April 19, 2012:

Thank you very much, really I think that mechanising our life was a necessity because as you clarified , that machine made our life quite easier.

When we are looking on all brands and all diverse gadgets which are doing the same function or ,just making humans more idle and even , he stepped down from his brain and another mechanic brain is thinking instead of him.

there is a statement saying that, who has the interest and benefit from this event eg in case of a murdur or to vanish somebody, to me still who is or are getting benefit from this mechanising , one can guess that the big factories and capitalism are supporting this trend , of depending to our nose on their manufactured gadgets.

so , I encourage everybody do not depend a lot on these enslaving items. Be like your ancestors free, use your brain, hands and feet, you can not die from hunger.
