technology, in general, is really helpful for all of us, in all ways, but through it, many scandals can easily spread, people are killed with a blink of an eye, rich people who got a hold of it, becomes richer and the poor, who can't afford, becomes poorer.. are there a lot more disadvantages having technology, or the consequences are worth it for modernized world?

Every evolutionary phase has some disadvantages and technology is no different.However,if we stop evolving and innovating for the fear of it's negative impacts , then we might stop growing which means the social challenges as we know them ,will always stay.Conversely,when we make progress there might be new challenges but the past ones will be solved and we might be better placed to counter the new ones.In my opinion,we should keep steering ahead.The only thing that we should avoid is challenging the nature as that can have devastating consequences.
