How will you react, if it is said that they both have similar status.
- Rights but no responsibility
- Forget and Exploit
- What society gives in turn?
- Welcome to Stone Age
- Society Needs Change
Rights but no responsibility
Society wants to have food and research. They want the right to get these products but they are not willing to take on the responsibility to give the people involved in developing those products the due respect. This is paradoxical stance of society like the way it shows to smoking.
Forget and Exploit
Society forgets that whatever comforts they are getting is due to hard labour of researchers who work day and night to make society’s life comfortable.
What society gives in turn?
Society gives researchers the status of farmers, which in today’s society has become a taboo. This is the major similarity between the both along with the fact that society can’t survive without their products.
Welcome to Stone Age
If stance of versus exists then it will can severely affect the whole society as a whole. It will mean no comfort, innovation and jobs and free return ticket to Stone Age. Since, it’s the scientists who develop new concepts which provide new uses and finally creating new jobs.
Society Needs Change
It important for society to change its attitude as a time may come when no student will engage in research. No one would like to study extra 5-10 years just for listening the booing of the society and to get lowly paid. Some may say that researchers are human beings than much higher in position than others and they deserve some respect.
