There are many great inventions in 20th century among which TV is absolutely an outstanding one. It has brought people a lot of entertainment and made the world smaller than before because the news happens in the U.S.A can be watched by people living in China in a second. One could hardly exhaust the benefits brought by TV but some poeple argue that Telvesion has destroyed communication among friends and family. They think people are indulged in watching TV programs and do not talk to each other any more.
Personally speaking,I`m not for the argument. I do not think it is TV that has destroyed communication among friends and family. It is the society, a world full of intense competition, not TV or any other machines or devices that make people reluctant to communicate with each other. After a day`s tiring work, some people would like to have a drink in bars or watch TV at home. No matter what they do,where they are,they just want to find a place to lose themslves where they can forget the pressure of their job,at least temporally. The society has forced people to conceal their thoughts to protect themselves and that is why more and more people believe `silence is gold` now.
Even before the invention of Television, I do not think people at that time had better communication than people nowadays. Advantages are always with disadvantages and nothing is perfet. Nothing but people can change people themselves,so it is no use complaining about machines or devices made by peole.
