As an individual with physical deformities due to a medical illness, I know I'm not apart of society. If there was ever a falling of our infrastructure I will be the first to be lynched. On top of that, my life thus far was and still is different. What I mean by that is that everyone will have hardships in their lifetime, however it seems like there are common hardships and then uncommon hardships. In saying that, I haven't lived a life of common hardships. I've experienced things that a lot of people haven't experienced before, and probably never will. Granted, life can always get worse. So, I'm fully aware that I haven't experienced other stuff that even a rarer few have only experienced. Thank goodness for that. Point is, that having a life that is uncommon also sets you apart from society, and not in a good way. Actually, is being set apart from society ever a good thing, because In general society doesn't like anything that is different? Anyways, I look different, I have a life that is different, I'm sure I'm acting different due to the impact my experiences had on me. All in all, I know, I've been knowing that society doesn't accept, allow, or even like me. I see it everyday in the media. I even encounter it with personal interaction.
However, I wouldn't abolish society. Not even if I had a little button that I just have to press to do so.
Society is how we know how to conform, and comformity is a great thing. I know a lot of people bash it, but they're just doing that because they want to be different, but really are not. Because being different IS NOT a good thing. Conformity serves a great function is basically what I'm saying. Sure, we can do without certain things like blaming the victim, blaming women for everything, etc. And we should be more liberal, which sounds like that is the total opposite of comfomity. But, you can be comformed and be liberal at the same time. We just need to change a few things. Which society... as comformed as it is, is capable of change, because it has done so before. But, for the most part society does us good over it doing us bad.
