Filed Under (Singapore Guide on Choosing a Business) by author on

The use of “time machines” is merely a futile way for one to try and resist change by playing mind games with oneself. In addition, one may refuse to accept change by giving the simplistic excuse that the change was too abrupt, but lamenting about such a change is an ineffectual attempt to try and rewind time. For example, an unforeseen passing on of a loved one is undeniably a painful and heart-wrenching change that one may find difficult to let go, let alone embrace. Yet, stubborn refusals to accept this change does not in any way alter the fact that the person is gone for good, and that the only way out would be to acknowledge that tormenting fact and move on. Hence, with the knowledge that change is constant and perpetual, we should be more than ready to deal with the sudden curveballs that life may throw at us anytime.

From a more political aspect, change has been a rather controversial issue. Leaders in democratic states may not make decisions in accordance to the people’s wills, and more so in communist or authoritarian states. The dominant theme of the recent presidential elections in the United States has been that of change, and such an idea brought forward by Barack Obama has proved extremely popular among voters. However, in spite of the U.S being a democratic state, the changes and decisions made may not necessarily a reflection of the will of the people. However, in most cases, governments in democratic countries or states would seek only the best for its people. Thus, trust in the government should give people the comfort in knowing that they are well taken care of, so that they are able to willingly accept change instead of resisting it.

How Does Television Affect Our Culture?

Television reflects badly on the society that we live in – we are seen to be mindless and fatuous because of how we sub-consciously, or at times even consciously, allow ourselves to be drawn into such fictitious and seemingly “exciting” harmful activities. Indeed, terrorist attacks have been increasingly rampant around the world, the more recent ones being suicide bombings in Pakistan, taking away the lives of many innocent victims and further depicting the degenerating state of our modern society. The ironic generation of criticism regarding such acts by our society, on our society, only serves to emphasize the foolishness on our parts, leading one to ponder over how a mere box with a primary purpose of entertaining could cause the decline of our society through the image it presents to its audience.

Furthermore, as globalization leads to more advancement and Man continues to evolve, society also evolves from a closely connected community as it was in the past where technology was scarce and less advanced, to a cold, unfeeling society of individuals. This is seen through the spate of crime, aggression, and violence that the world has been and is continuing to be exposed to. What the effect of such a development, or “progress”, signifies is a moral decline, presented not just through television shows produced by scriptwriters, but also through the broadcast of news which also constitutes a television programme. It is often read and heard about in the news, about offenders carrying out morally unethical acts such as sex-related crimes, or crimes arising from violence or aggression. For the most part, these offenders are influenced by drama serials such as ‘Sex and the City’, and ‘Big Brother’.
