Is material progress really the culprit?

The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Questioner (Q): I have a dilemma related to material progress. When I have debates with my friends and relatives who are good with academics and meditate sometimes, they are of the view that any kind of development, such as mobile phones, the internet, etc., is a positive progress for us. I disagree with them.
