Industrialization Effects On Human Being Essay, Research Paper
Every human being has the need to share his happiness or his sad moments
with other people, and especially with his close persons such as his family or his
friends , because these are the groups of people who are really close to him and
these are the only people who really can understand him and give him their help
without expecting reward.
Unfortunately, as society industrializes, family and friends keep off from
each other and that’s why people spend more hours in work. Nowadays, work
is taking our lives, invading our homes, and generally keep people far away from
their close persons. In a very real sense almost all people are working two or
three part-timers to survive. There’s the work people do for a living ,the work
for themselves , plus the combination of housework and care giving.
Simultaneously, the old line between work and private life is vanishing.
Work has become a form of `home` and home has become `work`. Many people
now see their jobs as `more appreciative ,personal sort of social world`compared
their homes. People don’t have time either for themselves or their friends and
family. We all have realized that families face problems due to lack of time.
rarely have lunch or dinner together, rarely they talk about their problems.
especially , children face difficulties because they don’t have the opportunity to
talk about the new things they face every day and they don’t have anyone close
to them in order to explain them how world works. While one parent used to
work forty hours a week outside home, now parents often have a combined
eighty hour work-week.
To make things more specific we can imagine how we might felt if one of
our mates had a serious accident , or a serious disease and we didn’t manage to
tell him how much we loved him or that we had regretted all the times we could
be there with him and we weren’t. So ,what we loose is obvious and
simultaneously painful ;we lose our strong binds who connect people.
On the other hand , being involved in secondary gives the opportunity to
meet new people. Coworkers, students, business associates have similar traits
and goals, are familiar and accessible, and share in each other’s excitement,
frustrations, and celebrations. People tend to work , or generally contribute
with other people who are like them in many ways, similar social class,education
and income levels ,interests ,attitudes and values.
One example which can show us what we lose and what we gain from the
process of being more involved in secondary groups and less in primary
interaction is the following. Let’s imagine that one father is working as a bank
clerk and as an insurance assistant in order to have the opportunity to offer his
children more goods. He is so busy that he doesn’t have time to come in touch
with his own children. Of course he gains more money. But is money more
important than his own kids? No it’s not and it will never be!
In short, it can be clearly recognized that due to industrialization people’s
life has deeply changed. People don’t have time even for themselves and they
should be careful not to lose `themselves` too!
