Progress, an abstract noun in the vocabulary, varies in different fields. Usually, we will take pride in some kind of progress as it takes along success. But is it always good? I don`t think so. Sometimes it`s on the opposite side of the active effect.
Our nature is one who is suffering from our progress. Progress in the industry has been giving great damage to our earth. Look around and you`ll find this point. It`s the progress of technology that gives us brightness even in the evening. But later we lost our stars, which is called light pollution as it`s too bright in the evening for us to see the stars. This is only a common example of the numerous cases of pollution in the world. We can see others if you want to find some. Natural pollution is only a part of the bad effects progress has.
Also, our society is a sufferer of the progress of our own. Here, computer will show us why. It`s called the greatest invention last century. That`s progress of our science. It indeed has turned many dreams or supposals into truth, which is I have to admit. But what comes along with the progress in the science? Computers help biologists to find the secrete of DNA, and thus we have the technology of clones. However, what would happen if clones are used on us? While the spread of information is speeding up, we are becoming more and more unconcerned about our relatives and friends. And what`s more terrible is that the computer is used in the military which is threatening the precious peace nowadays.
Now you will see that progress is not always good. Just like the coin with two sides, progress has its good effect and also has its bad effect. To us, it`s necessary to pay attention to the bad ones coming along with the good effect which may not appear at the present time.
