The society we live in today has changed and people no longer care about each, instead, people mind their own business. A view on the happenings around the world can make something imagine of the kind of society we live in today. Therefore, the question of whether we are human being or not are either there or here, since nobody has told us that we are human being. We being human being are in our imagination, and it is just a science fiction. The fact remains that civilization has changed the world and everyone perspective about the society has changed as well. Therefore, the concept of civilization is real and it has changed several things since it started from the early man. However, civilization can be defined as human social development and organization which is regarded as the most advanced growth. It affects everyone’s life and therefore, it alters how things are done in the society. It has changed the film industry, brought consumerism culture, love and beauty.
Looking at the society one can wonder where human beings are going in such a hurry. Civilization has brought several changes in the society. The advanced technology such as mobile, computer and internet which have created revolution in social life is one of the amazing things which civilization has brought. It has made it possible to interact with people far away and created a gap in social life. People no longer spend time together and have a normal discussion like normal human beings. For instance, fifteen people can be inside a lift and nobody will be bothered to say a word of hi. The parks and beaches where people used to go to have leisure time have turned to a private charting room and gaming studio. Many people spend time at parks and beaches playing games and reading social media updates instead of having physical talks with friends and relatives. In short, technology has altered the social life of people and created robot being and therefore, it cannot be possible to answer whether we are human being or not.
The society we today are different from previous years, civilization has changed people’s behavior and brought characters which have swept away morals. Morality has been eroded in the society and therefore, nobody has remained to question behaviors. Some people say that “it has gone to dogs.” A society which was once respectable and driven based on societal norms is no longer live for its “golden age.” Ladies or women can put on whatever someone wants or likes and disregard any teachings or advise from an elder. Every day we witness change in dressing code with some intend to leave people have naked in the name of fashion and beauty. Which is not bad but some character or behavior usually leaves people questioning the morality of the attendants and therefore, other people usually associate them with prostitution.
Most of the changes we see in behavior and others are as a result of consumerism culture. Consumerism culture is the tendency of buying because the product is being advertised even things which one does not need or want. Consumerism culture is built by advertisement by major TVs and other marketing channels. It injects a character of urge to own something simply because other people have it and it has been on the media channels for a while being advertised. It is also important to note that consumerism negatively affects the society. It builds a society of alcoholism among the underage. Consumerism culture encourages underage to consume alcohol due to a constant advertisement of alcohol on TV, radio and other channels where underage can access and read. It is clear that advertisement usually aired anytime without any regulation and therefore, it is possible that children or underage are the most targeted customers with huge marketing campaign by the corporation. Therefore, because of civilization the rate of alcohol abuse among the underage in the society is high. The United States has been left behind since U.S. leads in the number of alcohol abuse among the underage in the society. It is now not a secret that civilization nurtures consumerism culture which plants the alcohol abuse in the society.
However, civilization has brought competition of beauty in the society. Everyone wants to identify and unique. And because of advanced technology celebrities and other senior personality have tried to change their physical look and even voice to resemble someone else and also to become more beautiful. It can be as negative human development, however, someone people view it as an opportunity to accomplish ambition. For instance, the later Michael Jackson changed his physical look through plastic surgery. There are several personalities who have done the same without thinking of the long term effect. Therefore, civilization has made it possible for people to change their character to become more beautiful or improves his or her beauty. And because of civilization, an individual is able to increase this size of butts, breast and other body parts. Therefore, civilization has made it possible to get anything in the name of beauty. A tale of a Chinese man who married a beauty pageant thinking that he has married the most beautiful woman until she gave birth to not good looking children.It is, therefore, evidence that with civilization anything can be done to improve the physical look of an individual.
When we grasp of what happening around the world such as Syria, Somalia, Libya, we can start to question our humanity. It seems nobody is bothered and people seem to be pretending to care while the opposite is the truth. Several people have died due to heavy machineries or weapons which make it impossible to convince someone that civilization has all being for the good of the society. The weapons made as during the latest civilization are very powerful, and most of them are used in war torn countries to destroy humanity. For instance, drone, nuclear and other powerful weapons are all born as a result of civilization. But all are used to destroy humanity and that is why it is difficult to comprehend humanity or human being in the content of civilization. There is a lot of human suffering in the society because of some few people who do not care or bothered. Most sufferings are as a result of civilization because of civilization
In the movie “intelligence” it evidence civilization has changed the world and the way people think and imagine. In the film, a character name Keen has an inbuilt eye sensor and reader which can read people’s mind and reflect back almost days earlier to trace and record crimes which one have committed. This is a high tech movie where all characters have unique technological feature which can benefit the society. The movie brings what has been in the society into a movie perspective to allow people to understand the kind of changes which civilization has brought into our lives. However, it is also clear that most current movies are different from early 1990s movies which a lot of technology has been brought into practice to add value to connect the film to the society. For instance, the film “Intelligence and Americans” indicates a proper distinction of two different and unique generations though they are both released early 2018, but the way both films are built, acted and ideas make them different. The Americans represent early 1945 generation before the beginning of the Y generation while intelligence represent s the world of civilization where everything is about technology. Therefore, civilization has brought some of the things to the society and it has been accompanied by some evil which should be avoided. Therefore, the way these movies are showcase clearly defined two worlds apart. The intelligence is very sophisticated in terms of technology, material used and even they way the film is staged, and can simply rate them as before and after civilization. It is show clearly how civilization affects the society and everyone’s life every day and it shall continue the society due to research and development which is being dine every single day.
The changes which we have experience are enough to show the effect of civilization and its effect t-o the society. We cannot understand certain things because we came to this world and found them exist the same way but through readings it is possible to understand how far have come and therefore, we shall appreciate civilization. Justice system has been expanded and nowadays, there is online or virtual courts meant to provide justice to the society. This happens in a number of situations and more should be expected to happen since civilization has entered the justice system late. On the same note, it has made it difficult to persecute cases, since it has made it easy to interfere with evidence so that no case can be prosecuted so that the offended can get justice. And because of this the society has changed and the rate of crimes have increased with many people takes murder and robbery as normal and part of the society. It is why we experience a lot of bad things like stealing and also increase the number of murder cases.
Nevertheless, the issue of civilization and human development are similar and they both have the same impact to the society. Human development is what has altered the world and brought more challenges in the society. It is also importance to note that because of human development or civilization we no longer acre and people have become so greedy in the name of saving. It is the same reason why we have few millions and billions of poor people in the society. Let us just take a look at a country like India where there very many poor people who are not allowed to interact with the rich. The rich have created their own society where they want anyone else to get accessed and therefore, building a permanent barrier in the society. It is unfair and was very uncommon during the early days. Though leaders were there but the class segregation were never there until the beginning of western civilization which definitely came with greed. However, when discuss issues like civilization, humanity or human development, morality and others it is clear we discuss things which affect our daily lives without being knowing. Civilization alteration has not ended and it is possible in the next generation or years to come, we are likely to see a different change or civilization encompassing human with technology which already in the society such as doll sex and other robots to replace human being in their daily responsibilities. Civilization or human development has been around for while and the advancement will continue in different field because that is what some people undertake daily.
