Here are some purposes of a society:

  1. Support

Individuals that are able to support each other because of their population and their organization are the main purpose of a certain society. It is the people within your group who offer you a helping hand in times of need. Then, you realize how significant it is to be a part of a society.

These relationships pave way to interactions between individuals in a particular society. Even if many individuals belong to different ethnic tribes, they can still come together and unite because of a society. The heart of all social groups are the families and this is what is being brought about by interaction within people, they give importance to bonds and connections that betters their relationships in so many ways.

  1. Forming culture

This is also an important element of the society. The culture is fundamental because it paves way to a common way of living. How people survive and how they go in their lifestyle is because of a culture. The human activities inside a society are patterned by the culture. In art, language, food and more are the representations of culture in a society and the people who completes it. The people that belong in a specific society are bounded by the same traditions, beliefs and values which shape their culture in return.

  1. Regulating

All individuals have basic needs and they are called as basic for a reason; human beings could not live without these needs for they are the ones supporting our life like education, health, transportation and buildings or infrastructures. These things are also a big part of a society. Each society has a governing body that controls it and they play as a regulator that maintains a balance between the usage of natural and human resources to provide the people with their basic needs. Thus, this regulating body is very much useful to a society as a whole.

  1. Common Interest

All individuals that make up a society should be looking out for each other. A society is existing because it is used to move forward together as a team with the same visions. If you belong in a society, that means that the decision of each human being that is part of it should be considered and thought about. It should be decided upon and it should have a common goal. The decisions are made to suit everyone’s liking and not just the want of a someone. If a society wants to forward, then the people who makes it whole should decide on a goal.

Now, there are still many issues that a society is facing, for example, racism, disparity, poverty, inequality, discrimination, pollution and overpopulation.

As a society or an organized group of people, it is our responsibility to act upon those issues for it to be properly worked upon. What makes a society better is that it has a common goal that the people can forward more about for the betterment of everyone. A society also gives you a support system like no other.

The Changes in Society

We can say that all the symptoms that are experienced and felt by the people that includes financial crisis is a symptom for the failure of the society that we are living in. But, financial crisis is just one of the major crises that are happening on the ground and there are a lot more. The people, however, are already informed about this change and this new era. The very best example of this new era, is the educational system that we have now and the system on how we teach and educate people uses the surrounding that they will be working at as the basis for it. Unfortunately, some jobs are already not applicable in the society that we are living in now and if some tasks or jobs are still available, less likely, a lot of people can grab this particular opportunity because the kind of education that we have are isolating people inside a box. 


The Changes in the Societ


The thinking of the masses has been already paralyzed by the society that we have. What they are implying to the people is that there is no room for mistakes because once you do something wrong, it will have a domino effect in the society as a whole. And, because of this, people stops thinking out of the box now since they fear the outcome of doing so. Thus, creativity becomes dead inside. The society that we have is hampered by finances and other monetary issues while creating a replica. Hence, what they have to realize is how big the changes are nowadays and what are the things that we must do to moderately change the challenges that we are facing.

Knowledge is the very characteristic that a modern society should have. Anyone can easily make a way into learning new things and gaining more knowledge. The internet plays a great role in this because it paves way for the people to have access a many different information and share them to other people. Many websites are offering many courses for free, you can just log on to this special websites for you to avail these courses. Having a computer and internet connection are also the must-haves for being able to enroll in these free online courses.

Organizations that existed in the previous era cannot be found in the grounds of today, they are nonexistent because again, everything is changing. In line with this, there are a lot of jobs and opportunities that became nonexistent because of this transition that we are still undergoing as of today.

Everything is transparent and it moves beyond the borders of the generation before it. Many businesses have failed because of mismanagement, politicians said the wrong words, a family of celebrity goes out of town and a storm hits a small town in a country; these are the different information that are now readily available for everybody’s access.

As our world changes, the society that we are living in also adapts to that change so what we can do is to adjust to the changes that happened, is happening and will be happening. We must be open to these changes and we need to think of other options if our plan does not go out well because of the changes that is about to happen in the near future. Nothing will ever be the same after these changes. We must live our lives like a chameleon so that we could adapt to our surroundings easily. Just like a chameleon, we must always be ready for trouble and happiness, no matter what. This is what makes a modern era, modern at best.
