    Hello everyone,
    I wonder if this sentence sounds english or not : "We must regard technology not as a thing which in itself destroys or preserves tradition, but rather as a tool that can be wielded in different ways"
    I tried not to use the all to common word "to use", but I don't know if wield fits here. Would you please help me?
