Socialism And It’s Effects

Socialism And It’s Effects

Imagine yourself walking into a classroom. How would you like to be greeted? Do you like to be socially judge or be professionally told to take your seat? If you are a socialist and firm believer in socialism you will prefer to be socially indulged with.

And be complimented about your style, your character, your interests, your behaviour, your dress and what not?

But if you are professionalism you’d hate to be judged, and if your classmates and your teacher begin to judge you.

You might say, dame this class, dame this teacher who even gave them the authority to judge me.

When all I want to learn is how to make a livelihood respectable and self-dependently and have a standard living.

 If you are in sociology class you will be taught-socialism or socialisation is a process of inheriting and dissemination norms, customs, values and ideologies.

Socialisation also describes a process which may lead to desirable outcome “moral” as regard to the society where it occurs. Individual views on certain issues are influenced by the society find it acceptable or “normal”.

 Thus, the salient features of socialisation are public opinion, public sentiment, common interest, social judgment and favouritism etc.

It is rightly said that since the socialisation of mankind many sophisticated and modern wonders are successfully built. For instance, the Great Wall of China is the greatest manifestation of a power of socialisation and the strength of society.

Socialization no doubt is one of the greatest achievements of mankind. But let us focus on what is happening inside our classroom today and how socialization has upset the classroom environment.

The first and most vivid upsets are the negligence and irresponsible behaviour. Today, we witness many cases of disruption of normal classes due to public sentiment and the decision to socialize or interact during class hour.

In simpler words, the decision by a majority to have free time during class hour has often disturbed the normal working hours.

How often do you see a Hindu, Muslim and a Christian talk about religion amongst themselves? Forget about religion how often do you see them talk about classroom lesson? Religion is one of the oldest kinds of socialization.

And socialization by its definition is cumulating people with common interest, values, norms and ideologies, thus, creating a sense of social division between the different group of religion and belief. The other major scenario of socialization upsets is the “social judgment and favouritism”.

If you hail from a less developed or more backwards society it is not gonna surprise me to see you being treated unfairly or unfavourably by others. You can’t blame anyone for it because a sense of favouritism has already been planted deep inside us since the beginning of socialization in us.

The clear picture of classroom favouritism is depicted in the selection of class monitor or class representative (CR). Many a time the less eligible once are been selected as the CR rather than the more elite and willing candidate, the reason simply being a social and cultural difference.

Socialization or socialism is all about achieving common interest and common goals. But what if such interest and goals are inhuman and destructive?

The force of majority is often very rigid and strong. Once decided it intimately turns into a rule of some guideline goals, which in my opinion is never appreciable unless such goals and interest are genuine and will benefit all members of the society.

Can a classroom get weirder than to witness a class been taught in some regional dialect. The belief of socialism which emphasise that every student should and ought to be equally taught has induced teacher to teach in regional dialect in aid for those who couldn’t cope up with the high-level English speaking of the teacher.

But is there any equality to those who belong to different society and does not speak the dialect. How is socialization reasonable when it creates inequality in its attempt to create equality?

No one can deny the fact that socialization has modernised the mindset of the society. Yet the definition of socialism is still very vague and ambiguous.

Many unwanted and immoral activities are committed in the name of socialization. Classes are been disturbed, people are made to believe in tribalism, casteism, classroom ethics are demoralised. Socialism has also created a sense of social division and favouritism. As far as possible classroom should be professionalised and not socialised.

It should be professionalised because in professionalisation there is no room for error, it does not pass judgment on social grounds, the very root of professionalisation is strict rules and regulations, and most importantly professionalisation is achieving common goals through individual goals while socialization is achieving individual goals in the name of common goals. Man by nature is a social animal.

 If you really need to be socially indulged with and be compliments you better than a lover? My point is to get a lover and socialised whatever the hell you want with them. Just don’t come to class seeking social indulgence and disrupts the normal working hours.
