Development

The science of society.

While taking a class in sociology. I was given a new insight from the lecture of the professor. An insight on development.

It came to me as the professor was asking, “What is development? Does having these things make a country developed?” which made me dive into further thinking.

What Really is Development?

Does having a grand city mean that the city is developed? That a city has plenty of nightclubs, casinos and malls, people believe it to be a developed country. Though even if you have a city littered with Malls to cater to the rich, grandiose buildings adorning the city skyline that the metropolis looks like a diamond glittering in the sunlight, can it be called developed?

HD Television that it seems like things are about to burst out of your screen (not really but they advertise it that way). But what about man? What about human development? I haven’t heard any news about it. nobody has told me of a new discovery on the teachings of Philosophy or Psychology, maybe I should try harder to find these news, but what about common man, is he bound to be a slave of technology? People would disagree with a statement like that, just as…
