I am the type of person who sits down listen, and observes.As a 15 year old I've been observing that maybe society has been affecting us to a point where we are zombies. I dont know maybe its me. But society tells us what to wear, what to eat, what to know, how to act. For example, Kids are suppost to raise there hands when they want to go to the bathroom at school. At a young age we are told what and what not to do. Like eating with your hands is uncivilized, however in some indian/west indian cultures this is looked upon as normal. Another prime example is the differentiation between blue, and pink. Blue for boys, and pink for girls. Who actually determines these factors. All these little things play important roles on our lives as kids, and adults. My theology is that our life is like a house. The foundation which is basically the support of the house, made up of all the things we learn from youth to the age in which we can make decissions. The upper portion of the house after the foundation is the most heaviest, and basically made up of "Life Experiences". However, all of our life experiences are based on that initial foundation. If a strong foundation is not put in place by parents/gaurdians, the childs foundation will crumble, which in other words fall suspetible to the other power. This is power in most cases include things like peer-pressure, drugs, gangs, prostitution and im sure you can think of more. In essence, a "Lack of individuality". My premise is that society is not encouraging individuality, but rather commonality. I hope to see some people respond to my observation. Im asking you guys to give my point of view some seroius thought and critique. Looking for some feedback from various age group as well. No offence to anyone as well. Thank you.
