Regrettably, Byfield doesn’t give a sturdy case, and with misled facts and statistics, it’s hard to be influenced. Byfield starts by referencing a study that many young couples are focusing on their jobs and waiting until later in life to have children, or simply not having children at all. According to the essay, Canada isn’t one of the countries that has had “much ballyhooed ‘population explosion’” that would “crowd the world with wall-to-wall people” (222). Really, he’s suggesting quite the opposite, that the population we have could “wreak great havoc on the economies of much of the western world’ (223).

The theory comes from the book Growing Old, a book which was wrote by Cumming and Henry, and was the first theory of aging that was developed. (www.wikipedia.com) They believed that older people will naturally withdraw from society for their own reasons; many believe that it is because on their own they don’t have to deal with the stress of people they know dying. They stated that the older generations will withdraw from society either because of ill health of a lack of resources allowing them to either travel to see friends and family or simply contact them. This theory fits in with the springboard effect. Basically your life begins with you being born, or stood on the springboard, then as you take off, entering your teens and young adulthood, your physical and mental peak 20-40 and then as your descend from your jump is the ending to your life, as you approach old age and ultimately death.

If only a minority of the population has a problem with overconsumption the trying to ‘teach’ the whole country the dangers of it is very unnecessary and a waste of a day. Establishing an annual Buy Nothing Day is like agreeing to stop breathing. Unnecessary and unproductive. Stop. Imagine living under the authority of a government that’s unnervingly similar to communism.
The town in “The Lottery” was symbolic of how humanity can become cemented to certain traditions and events, and find trouble when trying to create something new. The following generations will then imitate this, and find it hard to empower change, due to the fact that they have never lived in any different state. When reaching a state of change, one must empower a whole society to start innovation. Some traditions can keep communities linked together through generations, but it can also keep them restricted to insipid, unstable, or menacing events and
The Keys to Wedlock “American Marriage in Transition” was an article written by Andrew Cherlin about the evolution of marriage in the last 50 years. Cherlin believed the new ideas of division of labor, childbearing outside of marriage, cohabitation, and gay marriage were the results of long-term social and material tendencies that reformed the meaning of wedlock during the 20th century. He emphasized that marriage, which was once institutional, was no longer considered to be a necessity or even a part of the routine of life. Marriage had developed to become more of an option for personal growth rather than a necessary part of the life course. As an institution of the mid-20th century, marriage was comprised of the bread-winning husband and the house-making wife.
