Today, we are living in a generation that has brought about improvement and effects on our society. If those who lived before us were brought back to life, they would disagree with most of the things taking place. Most are considered too immoral while others are improvement and perfection. From my view, some things are good while others bring displeasure comparing this society to the previous. In this writing, we will discuss some things that please me in this modern society also those that are considered to bring displeasure from my view. The list is numerous, but we will view the major that raises an eyebrow since everything has a positive and negative side.
We will begin with the likes that are interesting to me in the current society. The technology in this society is quite advanced making work easier starting from education up to and including machines that aid in daily activities. In education department, technology has aided a lot to prevent the inconvenience of spending hours jotting down notes. Instead, the lecturer or teacher will take the students through the lesson then, later on, send notes for review and personal studies. Technology has ended the use of blackboard and whiteboard together with other related materials too.
The only thing that makes me not support technology being that it encourages laziness. For instance, when students are given assignments to perform, they may decide not to do it. The reason being that, there are social platforms where related study materials are present even the assignment offered can be found there. Students may copy the work from the site to submit as though they had performed it. In a real sense, it was done for them which makes students practice laziness. Because the teachers are unable to differentiate between original work and copied assignment, most students gate away with their laziness.
Manufacturers came up with fast food that either grows faster or are easy to prepare. We are living in a society that people are busy doing something. Therefore, these fast-growing foods and easy to prepare meals to save on time so that we can concentrate more on what we are doing. For those who are grown, mostly are groceries which usually take up to a maximum of three weeks for them to be fully matured, ready for consumption. But for the meals which are easy to prepare, they only require to be warmed only then can you readily consume them. That is why people love these types of food and would give anything to have these dishes.
Research has shown that as much as fast foods save time, they have a disadvantage, not all are aware of it. For these dishes to be considered fast foods, chemicals are used to manufacture them. These chemicals have effects on the human body and health. Certain sicknesses are a result of the chemicals consumed. For instance, fats are indigestible and due to this, it leads to a stare called obesity whereby it’s an accumulation of fats in the human body. Human body stores fats because it lacks the mechanism to digest it, when too many fats are stored it gives birth to obesity.
The moral behavior of this society has reduced compared to the previous society of the olden days. In the olden days, the moral behavior of teenagers together youngsters rested upon everyone. If they were found on the wrong side, the punishment would be administered instantly. But for this modern society, since children’s rights, we’re introduced, society is becoming more rotten. Reason being that people fear being sued or jailed for violating rules that protect them. For this reason, they can do anything without fear of being punished or canned.
Decay in moral behavior gave rise to lesbianism and gay which was recently approved by the law as a type of marriage. It’s against the law of nature for such acts to take place but since none can stand up to it we just have to watch as society becomes more immoral. To some extent, it has triggered sexual immorality and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. With each year the number is incredibly high and many are dying at young ages.
The above illustrations are only a few of the things that are interesting in the current society while some were not unpleasing from my view.
