What do you think are the most important social problems we have today?
Although today there is not as many serious social problems as
there was during the Dickens Age, some important ones do excist now.
The biggest problem is with the social classes. Money has caused
many problems for people today. Many are on welfare, or living in
the streets, some cant pay thier taxes or buy food for their families.
Others have 3 houses and other useless necessities. This gap between
the rich and the poor needs to be fixed. Another problem with society
, also concerning social classes is overpopulation. It is getting hard
er to live in big cities because of the overcrowding and all the
prices rising. There is no fair way to fix this problem without
causing more problems. Crime is another problem today, but crime has
been around for as long as anyone can rememeber and we dont know where
we would be without it. There are just so many different people on
this earth and so many types of things, that problems with social
classes and just living are inevitable.
Are you responsible for your own happiness?
It would be a dissapointment to know you are responsible for
your own happiness. If that was proven to be true then everybody
would try too hard to be happy then become frustrated and unhappy.
I believe that fate has some responsiblilty to your happiness. But
since it is your happiness, it would be your responsiblity to choose
to be happy or not. It is your decision whether to be thankful,
grateful, have high self esteem, or low self esteem. If you do
something that sounds good at the time but ends up making you
unhappy. That was your decision. Some might think that decisions
you have no control over doesn't make you responsible, but it does.
You are responisible for how you feel and act about that situation.
Being happy is likeing and accepting who you are and what happens,
and that is something everybody can do.
Do you belive we are in control of our own lives...or do you believe we are just victums of fate?
I would not say that we are all victums of fate. Fate does not control our entire lives.
Most of the time we are in control of our lives. Certain things bring fate,
I wouldn't say
me sitting in my Media english class typing my Journal entry is fate.
Fate is where your born, how you die, who you love, things that
happen to make you happy, and so forth. Someone or something has to
give us fate, I believe that God gives us fate, and has some sort of
plan for everyone. So, to me, asking if you believe we are victums of
fate is like asking if we believe in god. God is not in total control
of our lives either. God gives us fate, and fate takes you and far as
it can, then it becomes your decision. It's up to you to make fate
happen. If we make all our decisions, then we are in control of our
own lives. If it was fate for you to die in a car crash, then fate
would of been the cause of you being just a few minutes later getting
on the freeway, but it was your decision to listen to that fate, to
that feeling inside you. So basically fate is apart of our lives,
but does not control it.
