This misconception that vaccines are harmful is yet another major problem that misleads parents into thinking that they should never vaccinate their child. This misconception should not be taken lightly. On December 27, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that unvaccinated children were 22.2 times more likely to acquire measles and 5.9 times more likely to acquire pertussis (also known as whooping cough) than vaccinated children (Feikin et al. 3145). In a different article titled, Vaccine Verity, author Damaris Christensen says: If parents' fears over vaccine safety rise, public health officials worry that immunization rates will drop.
"I was not predicting the future, I was trying to prevent it" (Bradbury). The world illustrated in Fahrenheit 451 isn 't that far off from our own. Technology has become a very influential part of everyone 's lives, and has control over people’s actions and thoughts. Ray Bradbury uses the themes mass media, conformity vs. individuality, and censorship in his dystopian novel, Fahrenheit 451, to capture a futuristic world in which books are illegal and technology is consuming society. Mass media is a significant theme throughout the book, Fahrenheit 451.
In Robert Putnam’s book Bowling Alone, published in 2000, technology and mass media both represent a trend and “counter-trend” to increasingly low levels of social capital. While the development of technology such as television and the decline of appointment viewing have resulted in the ever-increasing isolation of American society, and although Putnam argues that “the single most important consequence of the television revolution was to bring us home” we also can now observe that the development of the internet and its explosion of easier forms of communication deepen our ties with each other. The advent of contemporary telecommunications has created a new and renewed capability to make and maintain ties that while perhaps not entirely offsetting the impacts of television, are significant in and of themselves. In spite of this seemingly unclear struggle between technology and social capital, it is clear that Putnam viewed the advent of television as ultimately precipitating a rapid decline in social capital that calls into question the strength of American society at the end of the twentieth century. While this argument is empirically well supported in the book, Putnam in large part fails to spend sufficient

Conclusion The topic of polygamist marriage is becoming more mainstream. Society has witnessed the most horrendous abuses of polygamy and is quick to discount the possible advantages to legalizing this type of union.

This had a massive impact on the new generation as previously pornographic material could only be accessed by purchasing particular magazines and the law required that you need to be over a certain age to purchase these magazines, this of course didn’t stop all teenagers under the age of 18 from viewing porn but it would have required great effort on their part, however the advent of the internet meant that all you now needed was a home computer with internet access and an ability to check a box stating that you were over the age of 18, this meant that pornography was no longer limited by age and the younger generation were being introduced to it earlier and earlier. Nowadays there are over 26 million sites dedicated to explicit content and at any given moment roughly 29 thousand people are viewing porn with 66% of them being male. Pornography is the collection of pictures, writing, or other material that is sexually explicit and sometimes equates sex with power and violence.
