You are a real tough cookie! Where am I supposed to begin? What am I supposed to talk about?
I would like to note that I have to be very careful as a writer while making commentary about society. To begin with, I have to establish the geographical location and the time period while talking about society. If I want to talk about American society ,I have to be specific in what area I’m talking about. Southern California is nothing like the bayous in Alabama.
American society 500 years ago is vastly different compared to American society today in 2014.
In “first world countries” (as if all the un-modernized countries are so backwards that they don’t even deserve to put in the same world as us) the goal of life is typically to get a good paying job, start a family, and find a passion. The most honorable lifestyle for the Sioux tribe was to be a soldier and die on enemy territory. That’s quite a clash in societal ideologies.
So when the word “society” is brought up, we have to be careful while making quick conclusions. Not everything is the way it used to be, and nothing will be the same. In 20 years, there will be a new generation and the new technologies that I am experience in my time will be outdated and old to future generations.
Society, you are constantly changing and you are consistently different in different parts of the world. The society I’m living in is great (for all I know we could all be indoctrinated to believe that this is the best way to live life) but I am interested in how other societies and cultures exist across the world. I am very interested in this, so if any of my readers have cultures or societies that they would like me to explore, I implore you to leave a comment with your recommendation 🙂
