Progress is a very important aspect of human development. Of course, in some cases, progress causes a lot of environmental problems and has a negative impact on people’s lives. However, I believe that it is more likely to be beneficial than harmful.

To begin with, progress seems to have made life simpler and more comfortable. Due to technological progress, a lot of modern machines have been invented, such as airplanes, automobiles, mobile phones, computers with the Internet access and so on. Undoubtedly, these advanced tools are very useful for us. For example, with the invention of the Internet, people nowadays can communicate with each other almost instantly anywhere in the world. Another example is the airplane. In the past, there were no airplanes and journeys between continents would take months by ships. Today, we can reach any destination within hours!

In addition, another benefit from progress is that prosperity and the standard of living have been increased. These days, because of progress in industrialization, we have bigger factories [and so] more products as well as more money. It means that we can buy more things than we could before.

Finally, human health has greatly improved due to medical progress. Medicinal treatments have developed very fast; as a result, we tend to live longer than the previous generations. In comparison with the past, diseases like polio, malaria, chickenpox and many others have nowadays almost disappeared. Other diseases, such as cancer or tuberculosis can be cured now. Moreover, with the help of X-rays, hidden diseases in the body can be diagnosed easily. So, progress in medical science has made life healthier and happier.

In conclusion, for the reasons above, I definitely agree with the idea that progress is always good. It has significantly improved human lives and brought many benefits. -ckNatural memory enhancer
