THE FABRIC OF GOOD SOCIETY

2
Abstract

Education plays a vital role in society, along with laws, and healthcare. People are taught how to
fit a societys regulations, and those who do not conform to the standards are cast out of the
community by the medical staff or by incarceration. Without education, laws, and healthcare,
society would fall apart.

THE FABRIC OF GOOD SOCIETY

The Fabric of Good Society


Many aspects work together to make a group a society, and a few key features make it
into a functioning recognizable entity. If they are not present, people generally only see savages
because society has functions upholding it, and if they are taken away it collapses. A society can
pull together making the key features work well, and all aspects span out from basic areas.
Putting the staples and glue in the fabric of society is not easy, but it is done through various
venues such as education, laws, and medicine.
Accordingly, education is an important function within a society, and uneducated people
are typically shunned from groups. The more boorish people shunning others might call
outsiders rubes or other insulting names, but some citizens may silently shun them off. The
shunned individual may not be wrong necessarily, but within a society, the individual is wrong.
Theories say it is choice for a vast array of people to live in a society, but a bit of sociology
shows doing so is easier said than done. The Middle East with all of its wars and genocide is an
example of how a theory, such as diversity, is a failure. The ones unwilling to conform may be
subject to fines and penalties for breaking a societal law. My personal findings are when talking
to an Iranian, Iran is an outstanding society; yet if I am talking to an American about Iran, Iran is
not a sound society. The term good society is subject to ones personal ideology. Education
informs people of what they need in order to function within a society giving citizens direction
while they traverse through it. A person not educated in customs may be looked at strangely by
others within a society if they use the wrong etiquette. For example, if someone ventures to
Saudi Arabia and asks for coffee, Saudi Arabians will keep refilling the cup until it is turned
upside down. Education also gives people the skills they need to be productive citizens within
the community so they can add to the collective and achieve accomplishments. Education allows

people to pick a path in which they want to go on in life and provides them a way to look into
different fields they may want to venture before going down a certain path. If someone feels he
or she wants to be a carpenter, the person can read about being a carpenter before going to a trade
school. If a student wants to be a computer technician, a would-be pupil can research the best
schools and learn about the trade prior to signing up for classes. People may not feel passionate
about a career field after doing some research, so having done some research beforehand, the
aspiring students may decide to explore something different. Education is a formidable part of
society.
Namely, laws are also important to society. If people didnt have guidelines, structure
would not be set, so people would have no rules by which to live their daily lives. Laws are the
foundation everything else is built upon regulating how science research may be conducted and
how people may be educated. Laws set boundaries for people to follow in business keeping
people honest and fair with their dealings with others. The most important function laws
perform is they set moral guidelines for people in society. Citizens in a fair society may not rape
and pillage. People running through the streets naked get arrested, people committing wrongs to
others go to jail, and the worst offenders against the law may die under the death penalty. Laws
keep people walking a straight and honorable path while regulating the actions someone can take
in almost any situation. If someone doesnt hold to their side of a deal, laws deal with the
unfortunate situation for the victim. Laws are even written saying if none are already written
while dealing with a situation, legislature can write a new act, bill, ordinance, or amendment to
remedy the problem. Laws are key to a society whether people know them or not. Some people
will only know the law after they break it and wind up doing some time in jail. Laws are the
central figure in society present for everyone to adhere to.

Indeed, another key function in society is the medical field. Without medicines and
psychiatric care, a lot of sick people would be in communities, and possibly epidemics would
have wiped out society. The black plague caused some major damage to the formation of
communities a long time ago. The medical field keeps people vibrant and healthy so citizens can
perform a daily function to make this world a better place. When people feel sad, the afflicted
can go see a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist to make them feel more at ease. If angry, the
enraged can see the same professionals, yet in some cases therapy is court appointed. If someone
is too far outside of the bounds of society, the person may not be deemed fit to live within the
public. Mental Institutions offer a way to remove the criminally insane and (mostly dangerous)
mentally disturbed people from the view of others while helping to keep the community in place.
If people get hurt, then numerous emergency rooms are present for them to go to and ambulances
to pick up the sufferers. When citizens are sick, the stricken can go to a doctor to get medication
to feel well and return to their societal function. If ones function is the problem, then sometimes
the workplace will assist with counseling and aid in the employees recovery.
In the end, societys knot which fashions the container holding all of the good and bad
eggs would not be without education, laws, and healthcare. Without laws, no boundaries would
be set, and people would do anything whether noble or dishonorable. Lacking the medical
community, no one would aid the sick in times of distress. People would be aimless if society
lacked education, and without the teaching of regulations and health, communities would be
dysfunctional; if any of the staples and glue in the fabric of society were to come loose, it would
drift away like a feather in the wind.
