Should we focus upon social advancement over systematic improvement?

  • Yes, social advancement will lead to material progress



    Social advancement will lead to systemic improvement. When a society uses the skills of all its
    members to the fullest, that society will prosper. Social advancement will lead
    a nation to get the best from all its members, whether they be minority,
    female, or of minority beliefs. At the same time, those workers will reap the
    rewards of their hard work. Once the all the skills of a society are brought to
    bear, systemic improvement will be a matter of course.


  • Maybe I think so

    I think that we need to focus on ourselves for a while. We need to improve and advance as a people. I think that we should work on social advancement first. People need to be educated and taught to work hard and contribute to society. Then we need to work on improving our systems. Maybe they can be worked on at the same time.

  • What do you mean by social advancement?

    This is a very vague term. Improving the system, which includes making the system fair to everyone, seems like it would lead social advancement by giving people the ability to advance on their own merits.

    Maybe if the term was defined better, I might be able to vote yes. At present, seeing the 'movements' focused on things that could be termed 'social advancement', it seems like all it is doing is creating an outrage culture with a lot of people looking for handouts just for existing, making it sound like they think they are special because of the group they belong to, instead of throwing away group labels in favour of considering everyone based on their individual merit.

    This approach is toxic, and simply seems to be making our culture divisive and whiny. We live in a very free society, where the proof is evident all around us, in all fields of work, that people who put the work in get recognized and do well.

    Not sure how 'social advancement', whatever that means, can really help that along in any way.

  • Both are good - But systematic is more important.

    Social advancement and systematic improvements are both ways that can improve an individuals living standard. But social advancement is dependent on advancing through an hierarchy. As such it is an messy and indirect way of improving society. Systemic improvements can be applied on a grand scale and has a greater reach and can be implemented immediately.

  • Focused On Systematic Improvement

    I personally think that we should not focus upon social advancement over systematic improvement because systematic improvement is that individuals improved on the system that the individual was working on. I personally think that we should focus on systematic improvement because the system has improved over the few years which is great.

  • Systematic improvement leads to advancement.

    No, we should not focus on social advancement over systematic improvement, because if we go for systematic improvement, social advancement will happen on its own, naturally. Social advancement is the ends of a larger goal. It is not the thing to work on, because a social structure is something that results from good policies, it is not something that can be manufactured by itself.
