ConclusionI hope that you have enjoyed my speech today and I hope that you have gained some type of understanding of the dangers of complacency from a philosophical standpoint. Please take heed to my words and arm yourselves with the knowledge that it takes to prepare your lives for the future. Navigating today’s world, filled with every bit of information isn’t easy. It willtake a lot of practice to get the hang of weeding out the bad sources of information that are outthere. At the end of the day, this will only serve to make you smarter, think better, and ultimately be able to provide more to society. Remember your morals that you were taught since a young age. Right is right and wrong is wrong. Defend yourself against complacency in getting used to not being caught when doing something wrong. That is no way to live life and can become a very dangerous practice. This will also lead to more destructive behavior in the future and the ability for others to manipulate your decisions very easily. Lastly, we must guard ourselves in the way that we learn to reason and understand. These two behaviors are instilled in us at very early ages like our morals. The ones that raise us are ultimately responsible for shaping how well we reason and understand. Although this is the case, we can do a lot on our own to help ourselves understand situations and what life throws at us. Understanding and reasoning are two of the most important aspects of life and complacency is always waiting dormant for the time to strike and disrupt our way of living.
