Today, we are living in a very complex social environment. In today’s society, people are stereotyped in many different ways depending which category an individual is located in. Haven’t you been stereotyped at some point in your life? Or you may have stereotyped someone without even noticing it. Stereotyping is actually more serious than we thought and it is becoming a major problem in our society today.
Lookism has always been an issue in our society whether you’re with or against it; nevertheless arbitrating anyone according to physical features they had no control over is totally absurd. Lookism is discrimination against or prejudice towards someone based on physical appearance. All types of discrimination usually affect people negatively no matter what your age is, you probably have encountered it before, maybe bullied when you were young, getting a different treatment from your siblings by strangers, and maybe even suffering to get a job due to your look. All these life experiences have a tendency of initiating an emotional breakdown at some point. Despite the fact that lookism is widespread nowadays and people tend to appear as physically glamorous as possible through attaining plastic surgeries or excessive amount of makeup, it has negative causes and must be terminated, Judging people according to their physical appearance causes several psychological problems as well as it creates a gap in society, and finally results in cultural dilemma.
Society is heavily reliant on many of the people who would be viewed as unintelligent and would begin to feel dismissed and oppressed by society, and would band together to incite change for the betterment of their lives and society as a whole. The more clear division among people that is introduced into a society, the more difficult it is to keep it stable.

Just as in Bradbury’s story, today’s society has also been desensitized by the chaos around it. Modern people have become numb when it comes to the importance of social issues because of the abundance of problems broadcasted across the world. People can now hear about “the kind of violence that once shocked [them] of the Vietnam era [and] is now funneled in all day and
Misconceptions are formed from stereotypes and are usually rumors with no truth behind it. Many stereotypes and misconceptions have been developed from many years back, along these lines, we’ve adapted to these stereotypes and misconceptions to name people by a specific title according to what is seen. In today’s society we have stereotypes and misconceptions because of the fact that people are so quick to judging others by appearances and by what is said rather than learning what the person is about. Many millennials are prone to judging others or being judged by peers, whether it’s at school, work, or social media. Although a high percentage of stereotyping comes from young adults, many adults are exposed to this as much as teenagers are.
For those reasons, stereotypes need to stop. Everyone stereotypes people based on what you can see at a glance, but these stereotypes are often wrong. Just stop assuming, and talk to people. If everyone just took the extra time to stop and talk to people before stereotyping them, it would truly make an impact on their life and
People tend to argue/fight leading into destruction causing conflicts, over differences if its physically or even spiritually. Any difference than what you are use to, often bring out destructive sides of human, we often only accept “normal” people into our society. The Chrysalids is a story that has much to do with despicable, but commonly seen nature of humans. Secondly because of discriminating one another, anger will be built up because of the judgments and the level of equality and erupt with controversies. Also, this is not a one vs. one, it’s a society vs. society only because there’s large groups of people who are “normal”, and a large group of “deviants” and these both groups are opposing each
In conclusion, stereotypes do exist at Dinuba High School and they exist in other schools across the country. Stereotyping affects academics and performance in schools and it is an epidemic that needs to be controlled as they can greatly impact students either for the better or worse. Props to those who choose to ignore what people say and brush it off as a joke but for many it does hurt hearing and having to deal with stereotypes in current times. Stereotypes exist in the names people are given (eg. Muhammad = Muslim).
Progressivisms Changes Throughout America Progressivism is a vastly important topic in one’s life and today’s government, and it affects every person’s life more than they may even know. Progressivism started in the United States, a country filled with corruption and greed, but its ideas looked to release our country from these terrible ideas and bring in a new age of progress. Its ideas have continued to help the U.S. reform and review laws and other regulations in order to give our country 's government, and its people, relief from the trap of bad leaders and those leaders making poor decisions, which affect everyone in a negative way.

The value currently being given to a materialistic life has affected many individuals negatively as we can see on several types of research as mentioned in George Monbiot's essay. Materialism can be defined as “a value system that is preoccupied with possessions and the social image they project” (Monbiot). The importance given to material goods can destroy relationships due to a constant competition of who possess more material goods, affecting one's social development and social skills. The vicious cycle created by this value system focuses on making people want and search for a social status demonstrated to our society by today’s media sources, making many believe that being materialistic and having more possessions is the only answer to their pursuit of
