Americans are taking actions without putting thought into them first. Expectations of younger generations have been lowered “to the point that where they can’t even respect themselves anymore” (Embry).

I wasn't a big fan of the idea of making up things that had nothing to do with the product in order to sell things that people don't need. Publicity proposes that by buying a certain product we will become better people. Is this really true in the long run? Why is it that people constantly fall for this? The fact that someone as morally reprehensible as Paris Hilton can tell us to buy something and we will do it?
Today we live in a “Whatever” culture and is now the new face of postmodernism. It seems to be very difficult today for people to engage oneself for the betterment of our neighbors in a morally meaningful way. This can make one feel overwhelmed, so it is easier for us to look the other way, shrugging off the problems around us but to do nothing and “know” seems less than human. Today people desire instant gratification and seem to do what they want when they want, but this is why we are morally malformed and those in power are often filled with cynicism. How can we find a way to love this world and if so how do we communicate knowledge about the issue without being criticized?
Gilgamesh: Writing Engagement #1 What is the fool dissatisfied about? Humans are fools, a fact which we often try to deter away from accepting. For the reason that, we feel the need to identify ourselves as being in control and satisfied with our lives, to be accepted by our society, that criticizes people that are depressed and anything far from being pleased for their lives. Personally, I believe that the core reason for a fool’s dissatisfaction, is merely not lacking in materialistic items, rather their restless mind and soul, which cannot be at ease despite as many items are purchased or relationships are formed.

However, it’s important to recognise that not all celebrities choose to be famous, and the media’s over intrusive behaviour toward celebrities cannot always be justified. These individuals ought to have the right to protect certain aspects of their private lives on the basis of human rights. The media attention that celebrities receive has resulted in a total lack of privacy regarding both public and private issues. This loss is mainly due to the status of celebrities as public figures, which exposes them to more extensive scrutiny compared to the average person. In recent times our obsession with public figures has grown, especially with the advances in technology.
technology has caused laziness in all generations because people overuse technology fir unnecessary tasks. Discrimination towards older generations leads to the negative aspect if technology. we are experiencing future shock which is the dizzying discrimination brought on by premature arrival of the future. in today's workforce a lot of the time preference goes to those with a technological background older generations are referred to as "Luddites", which are people who are opposed to new technological ideas. some feel alienated when they are unaware how to use new technological inventions people view older generations as incompetent stereotype Exploiting peoples privacy has become a controversial issue that contributes to the negitive aspect of technology.
There are many challenges that our great country faces today. Throughout our history America has also over some great challenges. Like for instance the beginning stages of how are our founding fathers were going to setup this country. Also slavery and discrimination. They are plenty challenges that our great country faces today like the economy, employment, discrimination, immigration, but the biggest challenge that America faces today is our safety and security.
The Dilemma Why do we try to face our problems? I believe that we face our problems to make ourselves stronger in a way. Because without facing your problems how could you excel? Some people find it easy to run away from their problems but in some cases this only might make situations worse. And in some cases people take the best with what they have and make it work.
We don’t realize the influence of media because we have relied on it so much that it became almost second nature. Not everyone is influenced the way others are, but some of the information received naturally changes our perception of things. We’ve become so reliant on mass media that it controls a majority of our lives. It is our duty to make sure to not allow media to control our society by limiting what we portray to the public as acceptable. As a society individuals should be able to distinguish the separation of fictional behavior to reality.
