In this world, life has many facets and features and what makes life interesting and spicy in here is that it has many complex and sophisticated features as one goes deep and have further investigation and research. There are three major actors of drama of life on the earth. These are the individual, society and institutions. These three have been playing and acting on the stage of this world and performing their own characters on the stage.
The health of any given individual has an impact on the institution and society level depending on the influence and involvement of that given individual both at society and institution level. A taxi driver and a minister cannot have equal impact on the shape and form any given society and institution. Since the minister makes a decision that could have an impact on the life of taxi driver.
Society is comprised of individuals and institution in a way both have a cumulative impact on the shape of a type of society is created. In this case, society has its own components and ingredients that could enable its daily routines in effective and efficient manners. Hence it is important and necessary to have a deeper look that makes or put a given society in healthy or unhealthy manner. Here, society can be considered as separate entity.
While having made this underlined fact, meaning, considering society as different entity apart from individual and institution, the health of any given society is moistly determined by few individuals who could create a noise or a sound in the daily routines and interaction of people. Therefore, the health of society is mainly affected by laws, policies rumors, gossips and the like that could create a noise or melody in many aspects of life.
There are certain aspects of life at a society level that create noise. When an institution drafts new policy, every one rumors and open conversation at all levels. It is like, when a government orders a given society to pie by turning to the left, in which there could be a practice that many could do by turning to the right, here everything changes. This given policy could create mental paradigm shift to very different angle as time goes by.
The conversations and practices after a given policy changes, which could have an impact on how society used to think and perceive many things in its own domain. It is not only the direction that is changed here, the mentality also changes. The practice is designed with its own reasons in the past, when such new practices are designed to a different paradigm, even if there was no rational behind, people could justify and add many rationales to justify on why such new practices are required.
This reminds me to an incident I watched in the movie entitled DAVE, in which the fake president designed a new policy and experts and professionals and professors were gathered in a media, and discuss about the matter the president released. They give all kinds of explanation whichs are not even in the intention and mind of the president himself.
There are also other aspects of life in the society in which there are people who could assume that certain books are mystical book and certain individuals are mysterious people. They have a profession or life that could go around on assumptions and what if things, in which they live with speculations and guesses. They could have straight forward answers that might not go with speculated ideas if those mystical figures were alive are asked, the answer they give could be totally different. Meaning, if you ask me a certain question, I could give you a straightforward answer than go all around the bush.
Why do many people prefer to live with such stupidity? Why do they consider mysticism is like something that cannot be figured out or known by anyone? Why do few people are always required to entertain such aspects of life who tell us the things they know and do not know under the cover of mystery, for matters that have no mystery?
Society has been shaped for various ages and centuries, and is made in a way such practices are acceptable. There is no other ways or approaches societies could figure out in this regard in which the assumptions and beliefs are made on past incidents so that all submit to such assumed facts and the like. A person in here could claim that his country is special since his country is mentioned in the Bible many times. But, in reality, this same person could live with starvation for years and the like. Where is the specialty? What is the guarantee to this given person being his country is mentioned in mystic Book many times? Being in a mystic book many times does not guarantee best life where as there are other countries like America that ar not mentioned in the Bible, but we can see where they are now. Where is this huge drama of life in this world is heading.
There are certain matters one should reconsider especially on the variables where certain values are fabricated in the past. This could be devised by certain few autocrats in the past that could not represent the majority or the future of that given society. Hence, detachment and courage could the factors and necessary requirements than go with blind fanaticism and conservatism.
