There are many things to keep in mind,

• What do you consider “high technology?” As time passes, things that were once cutting edge become old news. So, when do we make the cutoff?

• How should we define our “needs?” The basics are oxygen, nutrients, shelter, and so on. Again, where’s the cutoff?

• In the future, the survival of our species may depend on modern technology (or even more advanced than anything we have today). What if our survival depends on it?

• Do the negatives outweigh the positives? Even if it is “greedy” in the sense that it is mostly a luxury, is that such a terrible thing? We may not need modern science, yet many of us find wonder in the beauty of the universe.

I don’t care if the technology I enjoy is a luxury. It is amazing to me that we can create many wonderful things like modern medicine. However, we should also be aware of the consequences of our actions (climate change is just one example), and be able to pick ourselves up if some event rendered much of modern technology useless.

@adityacoolheadboy98, Good topic. We need technology to solve a lot of our issues, to become sustainable, to make life easier and more enjoyable. Of course we can find joy in techless things but maintaining those things to be able to enjoy them can be greatly benefited by tech.
A sad fact is that we all have to pay a price for perks. I think it is more than we should, or at least the luxuries can be expensive so as to subsidize the nessecities of life. But most business only has a duty to their bottom line.
