The term “progress” is a transitive verb that means a forward movement toward a place or the process of improving or developing something over a period of time.
Man’s progress from being a cave-dweller to the sophisticated person that he is in modern time came about in a very long period of time. His intelligence and ingenuity led him to initially invent, discover and produce hand tools to improve his hunting system and food production techniques. Eventually, he was able to discover medicines to minimize and control death by diseases and produce more nutritious food to build healthier societies. His developed knowledge on engineering also allowed him to build better dwellings. Man has managed to make his life luxurious and comfortable but at what price?
Man’s progress however is also the reason why he abused his environment and over-utilized his natural resources. It took some time but finally man realized the abuse and neglect. And now that man is aware of what he has done, what’s next? Do we proceed on our dangerous ways in the name of progress?
Just my little thoughts…
