In “ Is Google Making Us Stupid,” Nicholas Carr talks about the impacts the Internet has on people. Carr thinks his mind is changing because of the Internet. He argues that the Internet makes people distracted, therefore deep reading becomes a struggle for people today. The more people use the Web, the harder it is to focus on long-term reading. Deep reading is indistinguishable from deep thinking. It means that the Internet changes the way people think as well. Carr thinks that people are losing the capacity for deep thinking. He writes that people are being drained of their ability to think for themselves in the end of the article. I disagree with Carr’s opinion that the Internet is harming to us and making us stupid. I think the Internet is helping us get more knowledge, become more efficient, and allow for more communication. The Internet is changing the way we read and think, just like Nicholas Carr says. However, I think this change is more helpful for our studies. I do not believe that the Internet is making us stupid. Rather, I think that the Internet is helping us get more knowledge and become smarter. Today, the Internet has a lot of resources for us. We have Wikipedia, Facebook, online shopping, and even online schools. The ubiquity of those resources helps us get more information and knowledge that we need. When I was in high school in China, my math teacher would show a math problem solving video to us every week. Many university professors in the United States and post their lectures and notes online. It is impossible to make all people to take those professors’ classes, but the Internet makes it possible to let the people around the world see these teachings. Carr’s saying is that people are losing the ability of deep reading and deep thinking. However, people’s brains are different. The ways they think and read are also different. Deep thinking is luxury and belongs to the minority mostly because most people do not spend much time on reading and thinking but on the things they like to do. I do not think that there will be more people who read and think more deeply, if the Internet disappears. I think the Internet benefits all people including those who are not good at reading and thinking and makes people be more efficient. For example, Doris, my friend in high school, was very good at reading. There was one time that our teacher asked us to do a reading assignment. Doris could use two hours to analyze and summarize all points of that article. I could not do that like Doris because I was really bad at reading. I had to do some research by using the Internet. The Internet gave me all the main points and saved me more time. I used the Internet to find answers because I know what was important for me at that moment. I wanted to use the shortest time to get what I needed. Nonetheless, we can see that there are some people who still read and think deeply, like Doris. Doris could also use the Internet to get the main points and save more time. She did not because she liked to read. If I find a book that I like, I will also read it more closely as well. Therefore, the Internet is not making people lose the ability to read and think deeply. Instead, it is helping all people and creates an efficient channel for them. One of Carr’s emphases is that the Internet encourages multitasking that make us distracted…
