Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do. These people are not allowed to live their own lives because of the fact that the society doesn’t want them to do so.
3. 4. No, obviously not, because if anyone or many people in the U.S. did not like him then they would rebel or create some type of havoc to show how much they disliked Washington. Many people would be upset with the decision and that would play a big role on how the government would move forward. 5.
In the article, “Roots of a Riot” one phrase which stood out was “Baltimore’s eruption follows decades of systematic failure.” (Von, 2015). From a sociological structural strain perspective, the individuals of Baltimore were more likely to riot due to the fact that they were not able to reach the cultural goals because of systematic failure; in other words, a lack of institutionalized means. The impoverished communities of Baltimore had a lack of institutionalized means, such as, education, job employment, and role models, and as a result, were neglected the opportunity to reaching the culture goals as other communities. For instance, in “Goodbye to Freddie Gray and Goodbye to Quietly Accepting Injustice”, by Michael Eric Dyson, Dyson statistically states that “the unemployment rate in the community where Mr. Gray lived is over 50 percent; and the high school student absence rate hovers at 49.3 percent” (Dyson, 2015). For this reason, the community which Freddie Gray came from had rebelled against society and rioted.
This quote shows that people in Fahrenheit feel they are not important which leads to unhappiness. People in Montag’s world commit suicide to often because they are not enjoying life. People in Fahrenheit think they are happy, but they are not. In modern society, numerous amounts of people are not happy. People try to commit suicide and sometimes succeed which is not okay, but it is all because some are not happy.
Clarisse mentioned to Montag that she was afraid of kids her age because they go out and kill people like it’s normal. She said six of her friends had been shot in the last year alone while ten of them died in car wrecks. On top of that, Clarisse herself was killed by a hit and run. This shows how lenient they could be about the law but for things that should not be lenient at all. The lenient law shows that unhappiness and fear is what they strive for in society.
Factors, such as our abuse of phones, the internet, and television, indicate so. These forms of communication often obstruct the most meaningful type of interaction—face-to-face. Furthermore, some engage in frenetic activities in search of a sense of belonging, connectedness, and fulfillment. There seems to be a lack of middle ground between disconnectedness and unruly behavior. Lastly, we devalue elders and their wisdom by refusing to hear what they have to say, just as the people of Fahrenheit 451 ridiculed and criticized those who were knowledgeable about the world before the “purge” and refused to have a blind pulled over their eyes.
The affects of having a concussion can hurt a person socially. Stated by Dr. Fred Klingbeil, socially people won’t want to be around anyone. If they don’t want to be around them its going to cause them to be isolated from everyone else. Another thing that could change socially is that they won’t like the activities they used to enjoy, so if this happens the fear of losing friends, and not talking as much as they used too. Socially, if people isolate themselves from the world it could cause greater pain than what the concussion has already affected in a
Depression is a mental illness that carries a negative stigma. Thus, no one wants to talk about depression, and as a result, the people who suffer from depression often do not receive the help that they need in the way they need to be helped. In his speech “Confessions of a Depressed Comic”, Kevin Breel discusses his own depression and the fact that depression is not discussed enough in today’s society. Breel believes that depression needs to be talked about more as it has become a more major problem nowadays. He also feels that the negative stereotype attached to depressed individuals needs to disappear.
However, the prejudgements, rumors, misinterpretations, etc. often lead to making that person a target not because of their own self, but for their appearance. Those same reasons also lead to the lack of empathy in an individual. The Maycomb County folks are, “... so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” (Lee p. 73). They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others.
The author addressed a thirteen year old girl named Cari Lightner was walking to a carnival when she was struck and hit by a hit-and-run drunk driver and killed instantly. The author also talks about binge drinking and how if the legal drinking age is lowered, Americans would stop binge drinking;therefore, the conclusion is incorrect. She states that alcohol should be forbidden until 18-to 20 year olds precisely because they have a tendency to binge drink whether it is legal or illegal,and how college students get into a great deal of trouble due to binge drinking. Students endanger themselves and others. They sometimes even kill students.
