Argumentative Position Rough Draft
Topic: Limitation of the internet to students
There was a time when there was no technology in the world and everyone used to struggle so hard to perform the daily activities. A double effort was required and more time was consumed. There was hardly any free time left after that to spend on something else. People used to work together and collectively to get work done in less time but the happiness of working together to accomplish the work was very real. People used to remain happy as there was no distraction and their focus was very clear whether it was on studies, performing house chores or ringing up children. The time period was difficult and different at the same time. Physical activities made the people fit and active. There was ignorance but that didn't stop the individuals from interacting with each other.
Coming to the present to this newly discovered world of technological devices, it is observed that life now is quite easy as compared to life in the past. Everything has become very simple and user-friendly to handle in this modern era. The main revolution in the current world is the access of the internet to everyone, everywhere around the world. People now look for the solution to every problem they have on the internet. Students also do not have to put much thinking in the studies and can pass any exam by searching for the answers on the internet. They are connected to their friends through the medium of virtual communication. However the main argument of this essay is that, is it really that necessary to replace the internet with everything else in the student’s lives? This essay will argue on the excessive use of the internet by the students these days and will explore the damage internet is giving to the students unknowingly.
Internet rapidly became a necessity for the people of all ages and now the whole world is dependent on the internet to guide them in life. This over-dependence is more harmful than beneficial (Mensah, Okyeadie & Nizam, 2016). It is seen that the students who overuse the technology in everyday life are isolated from society, displays antisocial behavior and are reluctant to learn something new. With the internet, many damaging factors are also coming in the lives of students. Now the students are more depressed and suicidal than they were in the past (Burnett, 2017). They keep looking for friends in social media and ultimately get depressed by unsuccessful comparison. The Internet has become the parasite that is draining our mental energy and due to this reason we are losing our mental peace, and ends up fixing appointments with psychologists and psychiatrists. An abundance of anything is always harmful to the health. There should be a limit set on the usage of internet so that students get involved in lively discussions, social meetups and voluntarily participate in charity. They keep losing morality and ethical principles on the battle of arguments they present on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter etc. (Mills, 2016). It has become more important for them to win the race of active hours online than the passive hours spent offline. Many of the students do not have much of an idea about their future, their career planning and the ambitions they might have if they take time out to think for themselves. This needs to be stopped if not, then at least controlled to some extent. It will be unrealistic to say that the internet should be removed from the student’s lives because the evolution came as a comfort for them but the damage is far greater until now (Williams, Derrick & Ribisl, 2015). Limits must be set to bring them back to this world of reality from where they were dragged away.
