The modernization technology has created distractions from the main goal because you’re always shifting from one screen or one goal to the next because the falsified goals we create have a better influence than our main goals. Social influences such as celebrities have a momentous impact because they are often idolized by the generation we have today, so they have a standard to uphold if they want to leave a good mark on the kids because if the celebrity is caught doing an illegal action kids believe they should follow because they lack personal experience so they seek the actions through others to fill the gap they have. Overall technology has created a lack of morality as technology has become more advanced because we seek a life through technology. The world 's problems or disasters help loosen the grasp on morality because we see the problems and believe that It 's right to do wrong
Simplified beauty is simply an ideal. Beauty is much more than a “perfect” complexion, but many do not view it that way, as the meaning of “ beautiful” changes from person to person due to the diverse ways people learn. In reality, beauty does not exist. It is an illusion that will conclude as the person ages. One of the largest problem society is currently experiencing is living with the past upon them.
Not belonging is the greatest fear for most but some people thrive when they are alone but others drive themselves crazy being alone. The experience of being an outsider isn't universal due to varying amounts of psychological strength people possess. When it comes to the idea of being an outsider that is all that it is an idea that is placed in your mind by others or yourself causing some to feel left out but others to flourish. Often people that are outsiders all they want is to be able to conform to society often losing who they are in the process. There are people though that don’t want to belong they believe that what makes them different really just makes them stronger and that they don’t need a mold to fit into because they make their
Modern China is an urbanized, consumerist, burgeoning world power that has created a crude oil bridge to the Middle East. The subtext to modern China is that there will invariably be conflict with the likes of the USA-due to conflicting interests-but the extent of this conflict remains to be seen. Another issue which arises from this newfound hyper-urbanization is that mass discrimination is pervasive in China. People are generally classified by their housing status, or ‘hukou’, which indicates the various mannerisms, speech and idiosyncrasies of an individual based on their geographical foundation7. The hukou status is carried with the individual and prejudice is borne out of it, with many people who are native to the urban areas exercising hostility toward said individuals.
Hong Kong has suffered a series of conflicts over its very short history of being a colony of Great Britain, its political status and the violent protests for independence. People can’t justify this discrimination since they often see themselves as superior over the others. Wealth and status are usually what causes these abstract boundaries. People can 't live their lives as equals to others since there will always be a way to find hierarchy. Superiority and inferiority are all subjective and socially constructed.
At there age they tend to think about themselves more than those around them, although this may not be intentional it is not healthy for a good marriage. "Young couples who tie the knot too early often fail to realize the gravity and responsibilities of marriage. They’re stuck on the "For Better" part of the vow and don’t consider the "For Worse" side. So while many 18-,19- and 20-year-olds are drawn to the idea of a romantic life-long companionship, financial security, social acceptance and love, they seem blindsided by the many problems that often arise—like unemployment, abuse, an unexpected pregnancy, in-laws, affairs, the list goes on and on" ("Marrying Too Young Can Cause
Old buildings that were constructed in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries usually have fewer floors; they have to be pushed down to build modern skyscrapers to give a higher economic value and marginal benefit to the property development companies as well as the government. Also, more land is required to meet the needs of growing population as more dwellings are required to provide residential, social and cultural facilities. Hong Kong land issue and housing problem are so critical that the government should do a tradeoff, by giving up the heritage preservation to meet the social needs. The heritage preservation projects may not be fully supported by the major public. Conservation of the historical buildings involves a lump sum of taxpayer’s money.
Because our social mobility has slowed, many ordinary Singaporeans feel it is harder for them to improve their lives and aspire to at least middle-class levels. Social cohesion and harmony is the essential key in holding Singapore together in times of crisis; if our social cohesion is worn thin, our society may fall apart when faced with a crisis. The widening income gap and continued low social mobility will create a stratified class system and leads to social divisions. When the social classes do not mix much, it may in turn lead to greater elitism in society. The ‘haves’ will not understand the ‘have-nots’.
Impact on younger generation Unlike the older generations of Singapore who have existing shared memories with heritage sites, to the younger generations these heritage sites play a big part in fostering bonds between the young generation and Singapore. A country’s heritage sites help the younger generation to identify and relate with the country’s heritage and history. Being able to relate and identify with Singapore means being able to relate to the entire history of Singapore and not just the present-day Singapore. Heritage sites are one important way to keep the country’s younger generation in touch with the past. The Committee on Heritage warned of the loss of Singaporean identity among the youth in an increasingly westernized society and
It does seem as though the hastened pace of living has diluted our emotions or reduced one’s emotional capacity, especially since the nation’s stance of pragmatism is rather deeply ingrained in many Singaporeans. As such, Singaporeans may be seen as people who do not live in the past nor yearn for it, as they are simply too busy too afford it. They live in the present, and looking back may serve little or no benefits in their life. Of course, while this may not be true for every individual, it is worth considering how emotions may be eroded by one’s lifestyle, inhibiting their desire to connect with the past.
