Has this new wave of digitalization altered our modes of communication in the modern era?
We use digital communication tools in almost every situation. Email is now considered antiquated but remains the standard communication tool. Erving Goffman has shaped our (sociological) understanding of interaction. Above all, he has shown what an important function everyday rituals have for cooperation and for our identity. My question is to what extent the routine use of digital communication media changes our modes of interaction themselves.
Subject: African History
Should we reconstruct our perception of national heroes due to their possible involvement in colonization?
Yes, by divulging into the roots of various cultures and communities it becomes evident that certain 'national heroes' were assigned this status due to their role in Westernization and colonization of African people. I think a larger emphasis should be placed on previously oppressed African pioneers and a new narrative should comprise of those voices.
Why do societies create a social hierarchy?
As a means of creating order by organizing social groups to allocate government provided resources and facilities.
