Civilization and Humanity
Although civilization has etched a positive impression upon the modern world (and indeed it might not be modern without it), I believe that we are not, however, better off in absolutely every aspect. The sands of time, coupled with the remarkable intelligence of the human race has led us, as a species, to progress at a rapid and accelerating rate, but nevertheless it has also led to become civilized. While much of our progression has led to the betterment of humanity, civilization has not come without a price. The societal faults constantly taken for granted can be placed mainly upon the shoulders of civilization. Such faults include stereotypes, social classes, government acts of despotism, trends, racism and other similar imperfections which have arose over our history due to causality and the will of the majority which has led to the suffering of the minority. I say society because without civilization, society would not exist and it is society that shows us the price paid in blood, which has brought many to their knees - weighted by such injustice.
