365 Writing Prompts: 21st-century citizen

Do you belong in this day and age? Do you feel comfortable being a citizen of the 21st century? If you do, explain why– and if you don’t , when in human history would you be?

As far as I know, I’m here and it won’t make any difference whether I like it or hate it. Each century brings with it good and bad, if I could take all the good things that happened in each century and give it a name it would be superb.

It is not only unthinkable it is ridiculous. I like reading about the century when Mughal Empire thrived, all those beautiful architecture, music, poetry and the gorgeous buildings are thoroughly pleasing to read about, but there amidst all this beauty there lived people who were poor and down trodden, they were living in the century, but could not appreciate all the wonderful things surrounding them, they were unable to be part of it, they were haunted by poverty. In that era only the rich were fortunate to enjoy everything around them.

Twenty-first century seems better comparatively, poverty still is a factor, but the people are looked after by their respective governments, although in some countries this is not the case.

I don’t mind living in the twenty-first century, it is easier to travel, we get news of the world instantly. There is so much to do, so much to see one cannot be bored.I think I like the twenty-first century.

Daily Prompt: Flip Flop

 

pad2015-s1.png (308Ă—60)

Think of a topic or issue about which you’ve switched your opinion. Why the change?

As humans we sometimes expect too much and on that basis we change our loyalties, it’s just what we do when something or someone displeases us. In the political arena I get frustrated when I notice a  politician, sometimes says or does things that annoys me, they visit us when they need our votes, when they get our promise they forget what they were expected to do in return.

This happens more frequently in politics than other things I mean comparatively. Sometimes it’s difficult to believe that our demands will be met. Yet we feel we have to vote. We do not want to give up our rights as a citizen.

At this moment I cannot think of a topic or issue in front of me, if there was one I certainly would think it over before I give my opinion.
