Have people changed?
For my English Comp class I have to compare and contrast one way in which people in American society have changed since my childhood. We are specifically instructed not to write about technology; to write about changes in personalities, goals, behaviors, attitudes, etc. This is difficult since I don't believe we have changed. Our teenagers are still doing the same stupid things they've always done...they think they know everything but are in for that same rude awakening we all experienced. We still have the same mix of idiots and geniuses, assholes and sweethearts, introverted and extroverted, selfish and giving people that we've always had. The only thing that has changed is the technology.
I have to create an outline and turn it in Monday. I guess I have to make something up. She said the thesis should be arguable, not fact...she's interested in how well we argue a point through our writing. I will have to argue the side I don't believe.
Oh, wait...does more respect for the environment count? Do we have more respect for the environment? We use our own bags at the grocery store, recycle, walk instead of drive...hey, she did say arguable...
