Social Education, Communities, and Government’s Role…
There seem to be a measurable gap between Third world countries, their categorization and the developed world.
Nations are measured with their social and industrial infrastructure and their produce, per capita income, and their military might…
However, there is other more important and crucial mean to use which may prove to be more effective instrument to measure the advancement and progress of nations. That is their social structure and participating role in the advancement of humanity.
This article is meant to initiate the social studies category at our website, and we sincerely hope that it will trigger a positive response from qualified social scientist to participate in posting their comments in relation to our social structure and wellbeing in this global era which leads to a new social identity to our interracial and communal coexistence.
The industrial and military might in the developed world was certainly very impressive after world war two, and it introduced a new concept to international sociopolitical relationship and introduced new tools towards achieving a merger in the cultural exchange which lead to uniting our worlds under one web-like umbrella, The Internet….
Movie industry specifically the Hollywood empire had more than its share in contributing to this cultural exchange, though, it is rather debatable how positive or negative their contribution is.
Although, what is mentioned above is as important as what is below, our focus in this article will be on education, upbringing and research at one side while, what governments should be practicing at the other side.
The education scheme in third world countries lacks qualified governmental supervision and funding resources from both private and public sectors.
There are barely any research institutes even within universities in most of third world countries; private and public sectors are totally ignorant to this fact, though reasons are seldom discussed in public even during election times. The exercised ignorance by both private and public willing and capable bodies to tackle this issue is rather shocking.
The other shocking issue which is still within the research topic, is the fact that most of the social and behavioral science subjects taught at the secondary and university levels are based upon studies made by the developed world resulted from research findings based upon their social environments, these findings are taught all over the third world countries regardless of the fact that a regional and local research should be conducted to enable it to tackle regional and local socio/ behavioral issues which in turn would lead to a greater improvement in understanding third world social culture, woes and needs. Thus present a better solution to their problems in a positive manner which would improve the productive capacity and development on communal and individual levels alike.
Local research is crucial if we are to better comprehend our socio/cultural increasing needs and demands and all what derives from it.
Governments in the developed world play a major role in being the mediator between its citizens. And by billing their citizens with high level of fees and taxes, they at the other hand offer a great deal of services and incentives to their citizens. Services that spread in a vast array of all sorts of fields and issues related to the advancement and enhancement of their communities.
In third world countries there is a common knowledge expressed in a popular generalization on the tongue of its citizens, and that is, if one dares to become ill or fall in any sort of health or social trouble, one is as good as dead. That is due to the lack of government’s attention to the individual needs, not mentioning the blind side of governments whenever it comes to a citizen’s complaint. The first response to any third world authority in situation of citizens complaining is to immediately quench the protest by all available means and repel all claims and protests as an act of rebellion that needs to be swiftly suppressed disregarding the fact that citizen’s security is what generates the authority’s security…
Most of third world countries socio educational data bases are founded upon translated materials belonging to researches conducted in different regions which sometimes have nothing in common with their own.
Most of third world educational institutes and their tutorial schemes are based upon philosophical methodology dictated by out of date references most of the times.
Social work and community welfare centers barely exist in any third world country, and if they do exist it is only a decoy or an alibi to steal money from the treasury.
Miss use of authority and ill practice is very common and rather mutual in all third world countries, which is based upon the philosophy of humiliating its citizen one way or another! That only results in increasing human poverty in general.
Developed world have become the only destination to all capable third world ambitious minds, because they simply lost faith in their countries, yet nothing is done to tackle this major 21st century international problem.
Developed countries give aid in almost every field except in fields that may bring final solution to issues mentioned within this article.
