Critical analysis of the article the associations made to Bauman’s fear of ambivalence as a threat to a well-ordered society. Modern education system has systematically evolved to mould society’s raw individuals into better human beings. The genesis of our educational system ensures that its members are fit and willing to perform the roles they have been assigned. This is the very essence of our existence that solely distinguishes the mankind from other creatures.
Education helps human beings learn, acquire knowledge and communicate with their fellow beings. It provides awareness to mankind in making educated decisions about what is right and what is wrong. Education is involved in the social construction of an individual to the extent that he or she is taught the ways to survive in an orderly fashion.
All the educational strategies have been put in place to create awareness and understanding of how an orderly society works. Clearly the benefits of a well-functioning, just and organized society are vividly observable when compared with regions where chaos prevails. An unjust and disorganized society, where its members question the very social relationships that bind them together, leads to a society where barbarism rules the society. Such a society leads to a system where might is right. Clearly, the only way to avoid such an ending is by educational initiatives that promote diversity and multicultural understanding. Only this way can we protect the right to freedom of expression, religion, and choice.
The struggle to formulate and run an organized society is the reason why world in general and our society in particular, are still existent. The day laws and regulations are out of place; this world will cease to exist. Social relationships and categories guide an individual with the most appropriate way to behave in a society. It ensures that freedom of one individual is not maintained at the mercy of several other society members. The only way to survive in this world is by fathoming the repercussions of one’s actions on other individuals and society at large. Any individual, who therefore, questions a well established system of social relationships and wishes to exercise his right to freedom without any care whatsoever to subsequent duties, needs to be marginalized and ignored.
