We live in a nation that proclaims to uphold freedom of speech as a human right, however it’s interesting how laws, regulations and fear of being called a “Socialist” limit our choices and thoughts. Citizens can get locked away simply for defying their government’s belief systems. I wonder how long society will continue to allow censorship to take place.
It’s no secret that many religious institutions garner mass amounts of wealth and do not pay taxes on their income. If these institutions choose to collaborate surely they would be able to gather the finances to help eliminate or drastically diminish the poverty and hunger pandemic worldwide.
Female oversexualization is rampant throughout all forms of media today. In today’s society we are bombarded with hyper-sexualized images of women used to stimulate testosterone-driven men. Not only is this prevalent in the media but it is also common in various aspects of modern-day culture.
For instance at restaurants, lounges, real estate agencies, car dealerships and other service orientated industries women are told to “Look Sexy” to persuade or entice customers. Even in everyday life women are encouraged to wear short skirts, high heals and cleavage revealing shirts in order to be considered appealing or attractive. Female pop stars and celebrities are exploited sexually by the mainstream media on a regular basis. Men are not subjected to oversexualization in order to succeed or be appealing. This is encouraged by the male dominating influences that control our society.
Social media has undoubtedly changed the way we interact with each other, we are connected but detached as a culture. On a global scale society has become addicted to their phones, iPads and laptops. Technology and the human race has almost completely merged. The lines between social media, reality, and everyday life is becoming more blurred.
There are multiple social media platforms available for people to get lost in, most if not all are just distractions from life. These social media sites encourage you to waste time by allowing you to aimlessly scroll through never-ending news feeds, celebrity gossip feeds and endless photos of other people’s lives. How will our relationship with social media affect us as a society in the future? Will the addiction continue to grow and consume our lives? The thought of it makes me somewhat nervous…
We live in a world that is constantly engaged in unnecessary wars that put innocent civilians at risk? This is something I will never understand. All over the world there are children that have either lost parents due to war or are themselves subjected to the by-product of war arms, i.e., radiation and firearm-induced amputation. Whether you support the ‘war on terror’ or not, one can’t argue the absurdity of killing or mutilating innocent children in the name of defending one’s own country.
The current system is currently set up like a giant game of survival of the fittest. Yes, ‘the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.’ Today practically every industry is fueled by financial gain. People are willing to step-on and cut the throat of whoever they need to in the name of money.
The worst thing about our money driven culture is that we allow “Big Business” and their financial interests to literally destroy the planet. Our oceans, ecosystems and wildlife is either dying or being destroyed right before our eyes for superficial gain. How did a fictitious economic system prompt the eventual downfall of the entire planet? Will mankind wake-up to its own insanity before it’s too late?
No explanation needed…
In the United States more people are killed by drugs than motor vehicle accidents. In 2009, 37,485 people suffered drug related deaths, these deaths were caused by overdoses to prescription medications. In the same year 36,284 people died due to motor vehicle accidents. Drug fatalities more than doubled among teens and young adults between 2000 and 2008, and more than tripled among people aged 50 to 69 years old.
Hospitals contribute to the drug problem as well. Between 1976 to 2006 researchers have found 62 million death certificates that indicate fatalities caused by prescription drugs that were prescribed and provided to patients while in hospital settings. These fatalities were noted as medication errors. How is this considered normal?
