Change And It’s Effects On Society

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.
