People Spend Much Time To Personal Enjoyment (From My Point of View)

Some people argue that for many reasons, most of people nowadays spend much time to personal enjoyment—doing things they like to do rather than doing things they should do. Others refute it because it is unreasonable to separate apart what people like to do and what they should do. As far as I concerned, in most cases people do more activities to personal enjoyment than do responsibilities which should be taken.  For instance, let’s take in general people who spend time with exploitation this nature to fulfill their needs rather than putting time to sustain it.

First, in fact there are more activities for entertaining or any works which heading to personal enjoyment rather than efforts for sustainable developments. For example, people spend much time to do things that consume much electricity and fuel oil, such as playing game, watching movies, and racing. But they just spend a little time or even not at all to involve in environmental conservation.

Second, the roaring development of modern technology most likely meet people’s pleasure needs. Admittedly, people need technology and to enjoy the life to treasure it. Nevertheless, the products of technology should not merely to have fun, but also to keep the earth sustainably. It appears to me that the technology products like a car and industrial machines mostly intend to pleasure activities. People create much technologies for satisfaction and less to think how to the technologies do not let this earth be heavy.

Third, people produce too much the daily stuffs for pleasure more than they need. Such as bottle drinks, food in large production which often be discarded redundant, and fashion. Most of people like fashion in clothing, wear foot, accessories, and make up as life style, which the materials are gained by exploration the nature, even color in cloth often is not environmentally friendly. However, they pay little time out to get involving activities in planting trees or forest protection which provide the materials in fashion. In addition, they take a bit activities in recycling and reusing activities.

In conclusion, I would argue that life style of people nowadays encourage them to spend much time to personal pleasure rather than responsibilities should be taken. They spend much time on exploitation natural resources and taking a little time on keeping the nature sustainably. It will mess our life up.

A New Election Law in Indonesia (from my point of view)

Do you agree or disagree with a new election law in Indonesia? The new law ends direct regional elections and empowering elected regional councils to appoint some candidates instead.

Indonesian lawmakers recently passed a law that ends direct elections for mayors or governors, and empowering elected regional councils to appoint them instead. Some people claim that direct elections is better than indirect because people can find by their self a right person to be a superb governor. Others cast doubts on these claims by referring to both of them have same consequences in chance getting right or wrong leaders.  From my point of perspective, as development of democracy, the idea of changing direct elections to be indirect elections is a decline. Therefore, I strongly agree with direct elections. My opinion is based on advantages and disadvantages of them.

Firstly, direct elections for governor will give opportunity to society to find a figure out, knowing deeply, and choose him or her to serve the society. As long as campaign period, people can search more information to know the candidates deeply. Including give any ideas or suggestions for any regional programs. It is different from indirect elections that empowering elected regional councils to appoint some candidates as instead. People may not agree with councils’s choice.  Secondly, by direct elections, people also take part in responsibility for their choice. People will be satisfied because be involved in making decision. If their choice is not as expected, at least people will face the consequences with better awareness.

Admittedly, direct and indirect elections take funds and both of them having risk in money politics. However, due to politicians’s negative behavior such as corruption and immoral cases, it made people loss trust of them. They really do not work to solve problems and serve society. It seems to me that they spend much time on personal and group wills. They are busy to reach money and power. If indirect election happens and the leader is not as expected, people will lose respect to ruler and rules. That can be trigger that shake the economic stability and rise a conflict.

Actually, a leading pollster showed more than 80% of Indonesians support direct elections. To sum up, direct elections for leader will educate people to more understand politics and involve them directly in democracy. Finally, direct election is better than entrust our voice to the council members.

Advantages of internet

Internet is one of most important inventions during 20th century because providing large amounts of information in various kinds. Some people say that the internet provides people with a lot of valuable information. Others somewhat agree that access to much information creates problem. From my point of view, I strongly agree that with internet likely people getting a lot advantages, which provide us tons of extremely useful information. My opinion in this essay will discuss four points regarding advantages of internet in further detail.

First, internet is available to people gain knowledge without border, finding new skills out, and/or strengthen any skills. For example, one whom could not cook at all can change to become an awesome chef after getting information some recipes any food from internet.  The unique, various, and valuable recipes of foods could make impression that the cooking is interesting. The other example, I got free a special program for English training because of using a lot of internet.

Second, internet connects people with their old and new friends. Any social media including email, Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc. likely people to reunite and keep friendships, and making new acquaintances. By social media people could sharing information, memories, greeting each other, and making relationship stronger. If you are lucky, you can find true love as well. Ah, let mercy come! Oops.

Third, internet could offer people things happened in every corner in the world. From a new scientific discovery in England to a plastics surgery trend in Korea, from a conflict in Palestine to a coup d’etat in Thailand. Indeed, the latest news and whispers in my country such as the new election law that gaining widespread criticism, misunderstanding politicians in distinguishing the phrases “walk out” and “all out”, and misleading concept in mathematics regarding 4×6 or 6×4. Please, don’t be surprised by any strange happenings in Indonesia, I love this country, anyway.

Fourth, people can use internet to be an instrument in politics and social movements. When a campaign periode in an election occurs, people can use internet to search information about the candidates as much as they want. People can use internet, especially media sosial for a movement. For instance, to against the unfair policies. People can report an important incident that might no mainstream media can reach at all, they also can share any ideas in a blog or other instruments that  enable to be widely distributed. Including to help an oppressed person and group, and anyone who need help.

Admittedly, there are some not true information exist in internet that can fool people and lead to any negative behaviors. Internet also can be a device in cheating and in any criminals or immoral behaviors. Nevertheless, as far as I am concerned, it depends on the users. Like a knife can be used to splitting the cake and can be used to hurt one. I am inclined to believe that internet has more advantages for useful things and can be a way to build a better world. So, give your positive minds to internet because positive attitude is contagious! That’s why I am sharing my mind on this page and wishing if it steals your thunder, will encourage you to sharing any good ideas as well.
