For a better society

It's all about making a distinction between right and wrong

SPECTRUM

RAFIA TAFAZZUL

Should we accept what is happening in the society or make conscious efforts to change it for better. To change the existing genotype and adopted memories is a challenge but it has to start somewhere. Every one of us shares a responsibility towards the devastating social structure and ethical values and it is high time for us to really stop being ignorant.
In spite of being its part, many people like me don't know who controls the changing system of our society. This question will never be easily or neatly answered by anyone. I am sure that every one of us at certain time in his or her life falls in love with the order, obedience or efficiency of a well cultured system and few may also desire to remove much appropriateness in our changing culture. For this we actually do not require any intellectual training but the conditioning of the values which once existed. As the stakeholders of this society the youth at large need to focus on creating citizens in ourselves for the good of society as we all belong to this society.
 The real human convictions are fading from the minds. I am not saying we should turn our youth in to philosophers or great men of service. We have not to raise up from among us the authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for scarce embryos of preachers or statesmen. We have ample supply of all these forms. The task which is set before us is simple and beautiful, i.e. to organize ourselves and all those whom we can in a perfect human order, which exists imperfectly. The conditioning of our changing modern society is becoming a must now for a fresh social structure. This is possible only through the harnessing of self consciousness and real honestly within oneself in a regulation of processes we carry on and some adjustment to our activities. The social humane consciousness is the only sure method of social reconstruction.
For this we need to stop the mass manipulation of our cultural and religious beliefs, because no religion teaches against humanity, truthfulness or honesty. It is greed that results in disorder of our society which is showing many worthless characters at present. The minds of our youth are getting tuned with self centered nature and self controlling attributes. They are no longer understanding the creative principle of society in which they are living. They are depriving this society of what it needs for a balanced order. This way they will themselves also no longer receive what they will desire in near future from the same society. Because nothing can be further from the truth and honesty, they are universally acceptable and most sustainable realities in the world.
The relationship based on mutual respect, commitment, trust, care, and unconditional positive regard, provides a vehicle for the healthy change process. I think it's important for people to live by some kind of code, so that concepts of right and wrong are part of personal behavior and not just used to judge other people, unless they really deserve it. Some people would expand my definition to include whether actions harm or help society at large. But that's where things get even more complicated. It is rather more convenient to just not only learn the difference between right and wrong but also learn the language to speak it loud what is right and what is wrong. My aim is not to spread public enlightenment for honesty and truthfulness, it is already well known, but it is a request to youth in particular to reduce incidences of falsehood.
