Education

The study of Education is meaningful as every individual is expected to undergo this recurring process throughout their lives, especially in this fast-paced and technologically advanced world that require constant re-learning. The more discerning individuals may question the value and purpose of education, which is a valid concern, given the rise of automation that replaces the need for human efforts.

Science and Technology

For the younger and newer generations, many individuals embrace technology as they are agile and adaptable in handling new forms of technology in the digital or physical forms. As for the less adept, albeit more experienced, individuals, they are resistant to change, thus being labelled as Luddites of the modern society. In view of the two polarizing views, it is imperative for governments and organizations to prepare their societies for the incoming challenges that relate to technological advancements. On the other hand, while scientific discoveries bring about many benefits, controversies arise, such as ethical concerns of cloning.

Social Media

Throughout the human history, many modes of communication have emerged. Along the way, modifications and improvements led to greater convenience, seen in terms of the almost-instantaneous interaction and accessibility, regardless of the constraints of time and space. Social media is the product of mankind’s efforts to refine the communication process. As such, this newfound platform has revolutionized the way individuals interact with one another.

Marriage

Marriage is one of the key topics that will become relevant in the modern society as individuals debate on the significance with respect to the influx of conflicting factors, such as the value of career-oriented pursuits and personal aspirations. Furthermore, alternative forms of marriage have emerged, giving rise to controversial discussions between the reserved and more liberal groups.

Culture

Culture is an important form of self-identification to a specific ethnicity. While some cultural practices have been preserved successfully, seen in terms of the annual conduct of festivities and household-level activities, globalization has contributed to the clash of cultures. As such, there are consequences, particularly cultural subversion. One notable issue is the elusive Americanization or Westernization that impacted other parts of the world, resulting in severe backlash.

Youths

Youths are the future backbone of all societies. Their idealistic dreams of achieving success at the personal level have impacted countries, seen in terms of the increased preference for risk-taking. Some believe in the use of unorthodox approaches to excel in life, thus explaining their unconventional routes along the way. Although the rebellious aspect of youths is frowned upon by the wise and experienced, we should acknowledge their willingness to try. Furthermore, youths of the present must learn to survive in a more competitive and challenging world.
