Since the inception of this very world, many changes have helped in turning out the world in what it is today. From the age of early man to the great discoveries of fire and wheel, we have travelled a very long way. This whole change of overview has made people smarter. With every changing era, people are becoming more aware and knowledgeable. Following are the points which prove that world is not getting dumber:
1. Newer and newer technology
The most solid proof favouring the fact that world is not getting stupider is that new and new technology is flooding the market. The technology is not only new but also more advanced. It has made the lives of people more easily and thus given a lot of time for other things. They can share this saved time with their friends and relatives. Also people are enthusiastic about this new technology. They use and learn it very vigour.
2. Education rates are increasing
The education rates are rising at such an alarming rate which points to the world getting less dumb. People are more concerned about the level of education they provide as well as they get. Girl child education is also encouraged. At the very same time, old age education is also encouraged throughout the world. More and more people are becoming literate. This has increased the intelligence of people and made them less stupid, indeed!
3. People are becoming healthier
With the rise of increased technological advancements in the field of medical science, the life expectancy rate has increased to a great margin. People have an easy approach to the medicines and thus are healthier. Even the people in the rural side of the world have a very good network of hospitals and doctors who take proper care of them. Advance researches are made every year to combat the deadly diseases. People are not just living for long but leading a healthy life as well.
4. Intelligent Quotient of people is rising
People are becoming smarter! Since the technology is growing, to use such an advanced technology, people have to become competent enough so that they are capable of using such an advanced technology. The intelligence quotient is rising day by day. Even a small kid knows how to use iPods and iPads. This has led to many positive results. Each new generation is smarter than the previous one!
5. Poverty rates are declining
With the increase in awareness throughout the world, the poverty rates are falling immensely. If we see the graph of poverty rates, it has a steep slope. The world is very close to an environment where poor people have at least food to eat, shelter to cover themselves and cloth to wear. Also the people from the upper sections of the society have shaken hands with the government to work for the upliftment of the poor sections of the society.
6. Immense amount of information is available at hand
The amount of information disposal at our hands is in terabytes and zeta bytes and constantly increasing. More equipped instruments and devices are now available which can store immense amount of information. The information once saved can then be used anytime in anyway. It helps in the analysis process which then leads to making of decision strategies which are useful to the world in some or the other way. Storing information has now become so easy, even information in the most abstract form can be stored and later utilised.
7. People are becoming more trendy and fashionable
Earlier people had no knowledge and were also not concerned about how they look. For them, their physical appearance was least important. But with passing time and growing technology they have become more concerned about how they look to the outside world. This has become important to them that how the world perceives the version of them. This indicates that the world is not getting dumber. The fashion is changing every minute and people are making efforts to stay with the changing trend.
8. Development in every field
The development is not limited within the geographical boundaries or even within specific sections of economy. The development is section wide and also world-wide. New and improved technology has helped the agricultural section to achieve huge crops. Improved machines have made the industry proves more robotic and thus eased the work of humans. This in turn has led to use the human capabilities in other aspects.
9. Socialising behaviour, less violence
What proof is more than being NON-VIOLENT to prove that the world and its people are not becoming stupid? Educated people find it disturbing when there is violence in the society, not just of theirs but also some other society of the world. They now rather go for the less violent or even non-violent path to get what they want. Even most of the disagreement is shown by non-violent methods and “dharnas”. People are more social. They believe in love, spread it.
10. Awareness is increasing
The overall awareness of people is increasing. They have become more considerate about what is happening around them in the world. They have become more passionate about their environment. New technology is brought up in a way which does not damage the environment around them. Everything is what we call “ECO FRIENDLY”. This is all because people are becoming more intelligent and have started caring not just about themselves but also people and surroundings which are near them.
