Society 2 Individual In Society Society is the concept that humans have embraced for thousands of years. Within society we are individuals in pursuit of our own agendas. While chasing those agendas pursuing search modern things as the career and ultimately wealth individuals often make decisions that are better for the individual and society ultimately has to clean up the mess. From private companies to politicians that claim societies best interest time and time again the evidence proves otherwise. Society, coupled with the free market has created the perfect conditions for individuals to pursue personal interests whether there are consequences for society or not. It is in human nature to want great things for yourself and your family even if it is at someone else’s expense. Whenever you have millions of people applying this concept of thinking every day the consequences take a toll on everything from harming the environment to a so-called boomerang effect and harming the communities the we live in. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to make wise conscious decisions and think beyond our own self-interests and pursuits. If society applies even a 50-50 approach on what’s good for me and what’s good for society only then things will better. Most often individuals and private companies only have their self-interest

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
