Society, in general, is always transitioning from one aspect change into another. Social change is constant for better or worst. For one instance, science and technology are advancing while economics and politics are intertwined as an influencing factor in that change. Society is becoming more diverse and the cultural influences of that diversity along with it. The social norms and values of the past have changed over the decades during the early course of this century. The way we interact as a people has also changed from layman to corporate level. It is a marvel of fascination on how this interaction effects the different destinies of people in society and it’s culture. The culture of media such as news, entertainment, sports, etc. all play a role in how we influence each other when we interact. The prevailing issues in society and how to deal with them are as varied as the perspectives of every affected individual abroad. The way these current social issues have been dealt with in the past has been a combination of slanted successes and dwindling failures. The current political situation, derived from these social ills, is as turbulent as roller coaster ride at a theme park. The same can be said, for most, about the current economic situation as well. The discontent with current system of things is increasingly astronomical and somewhat growing in huge proportions. There are some who are well situated and content with things but this is not true for a majority. Only a few people have truly benefited from the current system of things while others have not. Society and it’s culture will have to eventually reach a point of equilibrium and sustainability of stability as well as establish a national integral system of societal management. There is no system that is going to completely vanquish all the social ills and corruption of the day as along as the dark side of the force of human nature remains a key factor in the role it’s playing; however, these negative elements can be put in check to a minimum. This point of equilibrium and sustainability of stability is an on-going process to achieve as an end result goal of any social system. It is not a question of when but more of question of how.

The bipartisan system in today’s political arena is a repository of conflicting staged political turmoil in influencing public opinion. This onslaught of smoke and mirrors that fabricates the existing political turmoil in the political establishment never ceases to amaze and amuse. The sincerest efforts will be utilized in keeping a political neutrality for expressing this site’s viewpoints; yet, it cannot be helped to just occasionally, within a frame of reason, to explode with emotional fervor at just how psychologically captivated the general public is caught up with the latest misleading dramatization involved in politics. If and only if we are all willing to truly ignore the nonsense and pressure our political representatives to focus on the resolving the real issues concerning us as a society, then we would have a more cooperative governing body.
Delusional Conflict: False Dualities of Extremes
The game of two opposing forces in conflict with one another only to merge into one integral anomaly, presenting itself as a solution to very problems caused by the conflict, is as old as time. This game of deceptive perception of manipulated reality is conditioned into the collective psyche of masses; thus, producing quite subtly the kind of mass hypnotic programming that allows this perception to run it’s course. This conditioning is so entrenched into the minds of masses that only when things really go downhill to it’s extreme does any moments of enlightenment and flashes of insight into what has been really going on come to light. But as time goes on, more and more people are starting wake up as to what has been, what is, and will be happening based upon the transpiring of the chain of events of the past few decades up to the present day. Whether a one world government is a good or bad idea, the point is that it is an inevitability which cannot be denied due to what is currently happening now in the world as it is.
There is no shortage of conflicts and conflicts within conflicts in the world of politics. For example, in the U.S. this currently ranges on controversies involving the tax reform; alleged misconduct among our supposed representatives; fake news media, certain government agencies under fire such as the proposed dismantling of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency; removal of a government agent from probing an investigation into alleged Russian high tech involvement with our electoral process; a former Nation Security advisor allegedly involved with interference with U.S. foreign policy before the President’s inauguration; possible government shutdown due to the political establishment’s inability to get its act together; and finally, a whole assortment of mounting turmoil as I speak. Both Democrats and Republicans taking turns mud slinging; political posturing; propagandizing of public relations manipulation; and a host of not so surprising chain of events. These kind of shenanigans are not just in this society, but also in the majority of other governments globally; all of which is leading the push for a new world order. And as to how this new global world order will come about is a mystery for now.
Discerning Societal Concerns
Social unrest due to unresolved past grievances; politics of economic inequality and disparity in conjunction with stagnating socioeconomic mobility (a.k.a. – the current fading old middle class); increased hunger and poverty within the nation in disenfranchised demographic segments of society; perceived cultural deterioration of values, norms, and standards in art, entertainment, etc.; legalization of drug use that was once stigmatized but now supposedly for medical use only (note: only permitted in certain sectors of the nation); the family unit being changed and transformed into something completely different from it’s past definition; and broad spectrum of societal issues too numerous to address in this post. Once more, only the level of political involvement of the general public and time will tell as to how these social upheavals will be squelched.
Contemporary Society: The Current Social Trend
Einstein’s discovery of relativity opened the door to just how relative that everything is one another. For instance, I have observed over the years and find hard to believe that people have not yet picked up on the following:
The new middle class are the millionaires and old middle class is now the new poor and what was defined as poor is now the new destitute.
The billionaires are the new rich and trillionaires are the new super rich.
This society has been transitioning into a high tech third world nation of have and have not’s with seemingly increasing disparity as time progresses.
The definition of illiteracy has changed from non-reading to more and more non-technically inclined or just computer/technology illiterate. Only the most computer/technology savvy will be either in the ranks of the new poor that are well to do and better off than their computer/technology illiterate counterparts or in the ranks of the new middle class. And no one should dispute this because all of this has been gradually happening in plain sight for decades since the personal computer revolution started in the 1980’s.
An education with an associate’s degree is and has been, since the 1990’s, the new level of obtaining a starting point level of having a good shot at making a sustainable living as the high school diploma did in the past. A bachelor’s degree is the new starting point for having a good shot at making a comfortable, sustainable living. This all depends on job market availability of a given chosen field of pursuit of knowledge. Vocational skill development and applicable skill certification may compensate, to a certain point, for a lack of a degree but even that has it’s limitations.
