Is 'Change' a Good Thing or a Bad Thing? (Relate to the origins of art, the agricultural revolution, architecture and urban planning in Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley.
I think change is mainly a good thing. Change is to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of something different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone (dictionary.com). If change never existed, people today would still be like cavemen without any technology, clothes, housing, jobs, or development in general. Over the course of just one-hundred years, the the human race alone has changed tremendously. We have learned much more and cultures have changed. Also, there has been changes in technology which advances our medical, science, and educational fields in a great way. Since the 1900's, people have discovered better cures, medicines, and machinery for medical reason. In science, we have revealed many new concepts of the body, nature, and world around us. Because we have developed much more in those two fields, there is a better education being taught in schools. We need all of these developments to happen in order to change in a beneficial way. In class, we talked about hieroglyphics. They could have changed, but off of the hieroglyphics, we have developed different writing styles and languages. This change is good because we can learn about other cultures and speak to many different people. I think the majority of the time change is a good thing, but a change can also be a bad thing if it effects the world in a negative way. For instance, say a sports team did something to continually win, then they change a play or position and lost, obviously the change was not a positive one. Also, people can change and go down a negative path, so that is bad, but that is their decision and that is their fault for causing or making the negative difference. I believe change is mainly a beneficial thing and the negatives of change can probably be fixed when there is one.
