The 21st Century is just around the corner and with it will come many changes in today’s modern society. Changes occur daily, yet taken into view yearly these changes become extremely noticeable. The people of today’s society are changing everyday, and therefore so is the world. This report will express personal beliefs on what will occur in the 21st century. Within it are examples such as, crime rates, personalities, religion, and living environments.
The 21st Century will bring crime rates to a substantially high rate. In today’s society we have a high crime rate. Day by day more crimes are committed, and taken year by year the numbers rise hugely. This only shows that the police department’s system is not working the way expected. This system has not been modified to any extent, and therefore the numbers will not change. By the time the 21st Century comes along the numbers will have risen to a point where society will be terrified to leave their homes for fear of being attacked.
The on patrol system has not stopped criminals from committing another crime. Criminals who were once imprisoned come out different people searching for a new life. When these ex-criminals find that their previous record stops them from retrieving the dream they were told they could have, they return to the life of crime. The system takes into effect only the emotional changes of the criminal and has never reflected upon the actual changes of the rest of society.
Personalities are what bring about the entire population. Some have cultural personalities, this brings about segregation of cultures. Other’s have a prejudicial personality, which brings about segregation because of skin color. Each person with these personalities begins to resent one another. This brings the riots and civil wars of our society. The 21st Century will only stay the same.
Cities, states, and countries, neither have the power to control one’s personality. You can put a person through therapy or anything you choose, but that person can still have his or her own personality. With all of the worlds technology personalities are the only thing that can ruin an entire civilization in a matter of weeks. If a personality is set toward the negative, the same persons environment will be set in the exact same direction. The human personality is the key to that persons life.
The current 20th Century living environments are decent, but descending in popularity. There are literally areas in the world that people are afraid to leave their homes for fear of being attacked. This again refers back the to police and their so called system. If the personalities can not be changed by the police and their system, how can the living environments of humans change as well? They can not.
In common with these unchangeable personalities comes religion. True that this subject does not seem that it relates to personalities, but it does. Religion is dropping drastically. Reason being that priests are becoming more and more scarce. There are no longer young priests, all are aged. The stereotype of a priest has been settled and young people try to stay as far as possible from being that. Stereotypes and peer pressure are the basis for illusions.
Today’s young want to be married at some point in their life and have children. There are many restrictions that the priesthood holds and the younger society has not been trained for this and most do not have the patience for it. This is our religious problem, that can be fixed easily. With a simple meeting allowing more freedom of the priesthood, it would show the current society that the Vatican has faith in their family and trust that others can have a family and love God at the same time.
The 21st Century will not be so dissimilar than today’s society unless we change it. Change is probable, not impossible, as hard that may seem. The three main concepts for changing crime rates, personalities, religion and living environments are faith, hope, and determination. The 21st Century relies solely on what the next decade will bring about. Only we as a group will change the future for the betterment of man kind, and that alone stands a challenge far greater than the world has ever seen.
