CLASS: THE NEW RACISM

Image result for classism

“Society’s transformation.”


the new injustice

As a young man growing up in the Midwest you got a chance to see something that was quite interesting. And that was the disparity in society regarding the wealth in America. In the majority of minority communities there was poverty and then you had the predominantly White communities. This is where all the wealth was centralized. And as I aged I got a chance to see kids I went to school with, which was mostly White students who came from poor households. Then it hit me, who has the money in America if so many White families are struggling. Because the wealth is growing in the White community, but a lot of White families were poor. Yet the money wasn’t being trickled down to Blacks or Latinos.

numbers and the meanings behind them

When you hear the ethnic group and then look at the stat, you have to ask yourself, what does this really mean? Because if White wealth is growing, Black wealth is actually decreasing in the community, Latino wealth not much growth, and Asian growth is growing, but the numbers are still small; how is it White wealth is growing with a growing poor population. It seems to me like the same families that have amassed wealth money is growing at an increasing rate. Black people are being pushed out, Latino numbers are rising, but wealth is in White hands. What you’re seeing is a rich-poor nation. And when you hear Trump supporters, who are mostly White saying, “Make America Great Again,” they are not realizing their pockets are shrinking from other wealthier White hands.

as we trek along

Moving into the future the face of America is changing, which means the problems will still exist. Only thing is, what will they be. And with the pushing out of communities, you’re talking a cultural clash, a divide, but most of all, class will be a serious war. Because we are already starting to see people fight over who has the right to make what amount of money in a year. And who deserves to make what income. Trust and believe it will head into the future, even by 2050 when so many of Americans are slated to look similar in facial tone.

DRONERSHIP: WHAT GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS IS GOING TO COME OF ALL THE CONSUMER PURCHASES

adult, blur, bright

“That time will come.”


drones life

Drones have come a long way from when I first saw them. But when I first saw them, they were not for the use of people in their daily lives. Whether it be social or professional. Why, well he the only people that really had them were the ultra wealthy. And that is because the cost to afford them initially were so high, you couldn’t possibly imagine someone would own such a thing. But as always, once the technology gets to where it need to be, then you see more and more of these mini flight machines. But as time progress, what will come of the use of drones on the governmental side. Because there is a safety side to owning these toys.

government intervention

Seal of the United States Department of Homeland Security.svgAs more and more people purchase drones, there have come these regulations from the government. And because of the regulations, you can only fly them in certain areas. It has a lot to do with safety, which is a ruling from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). But there are personal drones for in-flight that people will be riding in for future use. This will bring in the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). And understandably so because I know I will abide by the laws if owning a drone. But the regulations are for people like me. A a matter of fact, I am the of he majority of people who are responsible. The very few are the ones who could impact everyone with their poor decision making. For example, I was watching a YouTube video where a young man placed wire his drone to hold his gun and pull the trigger. This who the regulations are for, since they are the ones contributing to either hurting people, or teaching others how to hurt.

opportunities

Now, when looking at the positives of the drones that will be brought to market in the future, what are the upsides? Well, for starters, you’re talking about a new form of delivery services. Because a drone designed to sustain for longer periods of time can aid in getting packages to and from their destinations. Imagine FedEx, UPS, or USPS getting you your packages much quicker and much more efficient. Which also creates a whole new opening for engineering work in the future. Now, of course you will have a number of jobs lost in the process, but it will be like any other form of work in the future. You just adjust to the change in times.

INTO THE FUTURE: WHAT WILL THE FUTURE OF SOCIETY HOLD FOR US ALL

astronaut, future, kosmonaut

“The mistakes of the past will hopefully be corrected in the future.”


Throughout our lives, we always wonder what the future holds for all of us. And we often look back at how technology looked, and how we thought it was so ingenuous. But today it looks so dated that we laugh about how cheap it looks to us. That’s because what we have at the moment is so advanced compared to what we used to have in the past. So, 10 years from now, I wonder what will
Image result for 1999 internetlook dated to us. Or better yet, 20 years from now, what will look odd that we thought was so great. And I am not even talking about something on a high level, I’m speaking of search engines. I wonder how will they change over time. Or will there be something more virtual that will aid us in searching out information.

Today, we are advancing more and more the use of AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) into our lives. Virtual reality still looks nice, yet pretty generic to us. And we usually use the two so far for video games and small simulation uses. But as time progress, AR and VR will so widely used in education, which will most likely increase the average student GPA. Image result for ar and vrNow in my opinion, the GPA of students initially using the technology will be higher than the students using it later. Early use creates a lot of intrigue, but once it is the standard, you ‘ll see a status quo of average students. Same with AR, which I think will be just as good for education, but more important of business use. People like doctors, engineers, architects, and scientist will be able to perform their jobs more swiftly.

And if the future continues to progress with increase in technological innovation, what will this mean for politics. Because Facebook has been pivotal in the campaigning of presidents in the United States. Barack Obama’s campaigns were both heavily pushed via social media as well our current president Donald J. Trump. Image result for future votingYou’ll start to be able to track other country’s leaders as well. And what will happen in addition is a more global system and moving toward fewer and fewer countries. You’ll start to notice nations beginning to merge, bringing on surprisingly more conflict. Because with diversity comes so many different ideologies in one given space. I think that there will be fewer wars, but more smaller isolated conflicts. Religion will start to decline, more people will rely on self-motivation than the need of a deity. I see us knowing so much about ourselves that we initially become depressed because all we see is this on Earth and no afterlife. But as more time progress it will become the norm.

In the end, the changes will be drastically different, but a sense of normalcy will still exist. And when I think about the future, I mean by the time I get to my middle age years of 50 years old in 20 years, hopefully greatness follows. Once technology starts to really advance, the population could decrease because manpower is less important and society is more expensive to dwell. Meaning, a rate of poverty also declines, and we have more food to feed the people alive. People will also live longer, on average today is 78, closer to 100 in 20 years. So, let me ask you, what do you think the future holds?

DIFFICULTY ADJUSTING: WHY PEOPLE ARE PUSHING BACK AGAINST THE TECH SHIFT

Related image

“What we doing to ourselves?”


Recently, people have found it hard to cope with  the idea that jobs in the United States are moving out of the country. But not just any jobs, the industrialized jobs that once built this nation. Now, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any jobs left in America. It just means that the marketplace has shifted around. We are moving away from an industrialized nation to a more technologically savvy nation. And that is something that so many people did not see coming. People were under this impression that we’re going to work in factories for life. But everything in society changes, everything. And that you have to be able to shift with the constant change. So now everyone is mad.

But mad, mad at what? We have always been a nation that has made these types of shits in technology. Yes, jobs are shrinking in one area, but we will be making strides in other areas. And the fact that we are in an open marketplace, this creates so many more great opportunities. Yet so many are resistant to change in our society. No matter if it’s social, economic, or educational. Changes have to take place; this is how one nation stays ahead of another. And if America starts to lag behind, then this nation as a whole will start to  take losses. So what must be done to prepare for the shift that is taking hold in our society? They must face the inevitable, and move with everything else in our world.

As technology progresses, products and services will become more efficient and productive. Not only that, but cost will drastically be brought down.  And no longer will you need the labor of people to get a job done. Because a computer will be able to handle what people used to do. Meaning, we as a society will become more of an informational, operational, managerial, group of people. The man or woman who can use their hands to perform a task is a dinosaur. Now, what used to take pain-staking hours of labor can be done in some instances with the click of a mouse. Once again, does this mean jobs are loss, absolutely, but not permanently. Old jobs are removed and made way for new opportunities. Then why are so many people raging against the machine? Because of the time to put into learning something new.

And in the end, that’s the biggest concern with the tech industry taking hold. It’s not that people are down and out. It’s that people start to age and get set in their ways and don’t want to learn anything new. You are more than capable, but you’re so used to the status quo, you think it should stay that way forever. But remember one key aspect of change while you’re fighting it. The change that able you to be who you are, doing what you’re doing was pushed against. Yet the push was ineffective, which laid ground for you to be you. So you have to adjust and figure your shit out, there’s no other way.

AGE OF DEPRESSION: HOW THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND SELF THE MORE UNHAPPY WE BECOME

black-and-white, depressed, depression

“In an era of technology, we are more connected, yet very much detached.”


In a world where we are more connected than anytime before, you would think it would make us happier. Yet it has not only made us happier, but the more we learn and understand ourselves the more depressed we become. And I don’t mean know ourselves like knowing me as an adult. I mean knowing us is it pertains to our existence on Earth. You would think with the advent of technological innovation and scientific breakthroughs, we would have a much higher level of enlightenment that would make us happy. But what that heightened awareness has done is give us the complete opposite effect. But should we digress because of this unintended effect?

View of Tourist Resort Well, let’s first look at what makes us depressed in today’s society. There are many different reasons why people tend to be unhappy. For starters, you are able to see up close your reality. And what I mean by your reality, you can see where you stand financially, socially, academically in the world. For example, you can Google image luxury, and see a world that is beyond your world just by typing it into a search engine. When my mother was young, an opulent life existed, yet you didn’t quite know about it. Clear Wine Glasses in a RowPeople were either born into wealth, or it was something you stumbled upon. Not today, today, you can actually see how little you have relative to someone else. And what’s crazy, you might have a socioeconomic position that is supporting you and your family. Yet you can’t enjoy because you are comparing yourself to someone way above you.

Why do we do it? Why do we look to someone that is far beyond us? Well, at times, that person is our age. No matter your age today, there is someone that age doing something on a more monumental scale than yourself. When I was in college, I was broke coming out, yet guys my age were signing multi-million dollar contracts to play sports. Comparing yourself to them and not appreciating what you have, even when what you have is adequate to live, robs you of gratification Image result for comparison peopleand the ability to live a fulfilling life. Meaning, you might want to make $50,000 in a year, but someone tells you, you should want better. Now you can’t enjoy what life you could have had with what you wanted because you’re chasing something you may not even want just to satisfy other people’s perspective. And with our lives being inundated with so much imagery, we still have another aspect of our lives that make us unhappy: our own existence.

Coping with our existence is tough for so many. And I don’t mean existence in the context of waking and going to work everyday, coming home, and sleeping. I mean the fact that we are here, on Earth, living and breathing. The fact that I was not born a lion, tiger, bird, or a house cat, but a human is hard for many to cope with in life. The simple existence that is me, a carbon based life form that has Related imagetaken forever to evolve into what I am, is hard to accept. And a lot of it comes from increased scientific understanding of ourselves. Here is where religion may have aided us in living on this planet. With the idea that there is something greater once we die, it gives us hope. As time progress in society, more and more people are becoming awoken to our existence. So awake, we are unmotivated to do anything. So now we become depressed with the idea that this is all that is here for us.

You would think that feeling this way would give people a sense of urgency, yet it’s having the inverse effects. The closer we come to figuring out why we are on Earth, the more we become detached from living. Maybe not knowing, is what’s best at times. Because in the end, unlike any other species where nature dictates how they behave, we are given conscious. We are given the ability to say yes or say no. We are endowed with the ability to make sound decisions. And that very conscious that gives us that ability also makes us aware of our situations in life. Some people make the best out of it, and others can never cope. And for those that can’t cope, it leads to further depression; leading to substance abuse or even suicide.

“He who increases knowledge, increases sorrow on the land.”
