The 21st century has begun. What changes do you think this new century will bring? Use examples and details in your answer.
Nothing in this world is immutable. As the twenty-first century unfolds we would realize that it has brought drastic changes in our lives. I believe that change is inevitable and it would be witnessed in all the different sectors in the prevailing world. We will witness changes in the economic, social, health and legal sectors of our society.
Some developing countries are striving to get in to the league of rich countries while the previous thriving economies are beset by prolonged economic downturn. Due to extravagant expenses and lethargic attitude towards work the workers in the developed countries have reduced their productivity. I think that as we will further move in to 21st century productivity would be the greatest concern for the companies and countries. Money would not be spent to buy luxuries and even the businesses will not employ their resources to produce luxury goods. Every penny would count.
World will also witness unprecedented barbaric and cruel treatment by some countries. We have already started to see the indications from the last century but as the century progresses the situation would amplify and exacerbate further. I would also go to the extent of saying that there would be a moral outrage. There would be lack of unity amongst countries and they would be unable to form consensus on the slightest issue. Alleviating inequality would just be a myth.
There might also be some good things which we might like to embrace in the new century. I am very optimistic about technology and education. Technological progression has become imperative for everyone and there might some advancement in this sector. Knowledge has become a commodity and is increasingly democratized and globalized. With the booming information websites the knowledge has become a facility for everyone and the trend signifies that information sharing will be on the escalating side.
Change often perturbs me because I think that change only brings more emptiness and suspicion in our lives. Well my argument has been debunked persistently but I am adamant on the issue that 21st century will bring some adverse affect on our lives and in order to constraint the bad affects world leaders need to address the impact and implication of these changes.
