Published 1 year ago

Once upon a time, people believed the Earth was flat, they believed humans would never be able to fly and they thought that we would never be able to go to the moon. There’s a lot we don’t know till we do know it. Even then there will be doubters; here’s looking at you flat-earthers.

While previous social norms are incredibly powerful, it seems the cracks are already starting to show. So, let’s take a look at some opinions shared below of archaic concepts that bigoted society really needs to move away from stat, according to an interesting reddit thread with a lot of food for thought for the more philosophically bent.

Waking up late. But getting a few more hours sleep is far more beneficial than some YouTube hustler saying you should wake up at 5 am for no reason.

Doing nothing with my free time.

I work and have chores. When I don’t have those things, I don’t feel like hiking or scuba diving or anything.

I want to do nothing. Leave me alone.

Being lazy, there is nothing wrong with spending the whole weekend just playing video games and watching movies! As long as you don’t neglect your kids or pets during that time who cares what you did on the weekends or after work!

A lot of people are quick to call you “fake” if you’re polite to those you dislike.

It’s not being fake, it’s being civil.

Assisted suicide. If your pet does not have a good prognosis your vet will recommend putting them to sleep. Why do we make humans suffer to the bitter end? Sure, we give them medicine to make them comfortable, but why extend that timeframe if they nothing left to do? They made their will, they said goodbye, now they wait and run up a bill for their family to pay?? If you have terminal illness, you should be able to die with dignity.

Knowledge, apparently. Seems like educating others and speaking on a topic you are certified to speak in is an offense to them somehow, so they think you’re speaking down to them if you disagree with them.

**One example** of something that society considers to be bad but is not inherently so is aging. While aging is often associated with decline and loss, it can also bring wisdom, maturity, and a greater appreciation for life. It is often how society views aging and the cultural attitudes toward the elderly that are negative, not the process itself.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
