To conclude, the concept of technological determinism has plenty of evidence to support its stance. From modern media programming inspiring panic in radio listeners, to crime sprees inspired by film, television, and even video games, to our cell phones causing ADHD and a rise in accidents behind the wheel. Technology does arguably shape our world around us, and in some cases, creates a dystopia of negative effects on our day to day life. This focus has a balanced counterpart, however, to balance it out. Technological advances have allowed us to be more productive, to bring production itself into the hands of lower class citizens than ever before, and to decrease the amount of time it takes for media to reach its consumer. For every dystopia, there is a utopia to balance it, and someday soon, I predict our cars will drive themselves and cell phones will no longer cause accidents. We can always progress to solve the old problems of the last wave of technology, however the fear of dystopian effects on society will always exist with each new advancement. I must also mention that I was raised in a religious group that treated all new cultural, artistic, and technological advancement as satanic, and dystopian; thus my fascination with the mass paranoia evident within this concept of determinism.
