Methods of Control

BY Makeveli

There are various ways of controlling things. Things such as: money, kids, pets criminals etc . . . Some things cannot be controlled; things such as: time and mother nature. We can although control time in a certain way. In our civilization we have set a method of the way we use time. Time is a method of control to keep things from going chaotic. Take for instance: Curfew. Curfew is a conflict of underage adolescence, the law, and sometimes parents. I'm neither for nor against curfew, but I'll try to stress pro and con opinions from both sides. In reality one must step in both pairs of life's shoes to make a decision.

Theoretically speaking, all men and women are created equally. Equality comes in many forms as do methods of control. Equality ranges with age, race, sex, color, and creed. All of these are very obvious to most.

These little, sometimes big, differences separate us all into our own unique character. Each one of us wants to do our own thing, especially when we reach the early stages of adulthood. This means staying out later. When one has his or her, license, the rest of the world opens up. At this stage one must be thinking what does this have to do with equality. It's simple. Age separates the adults from the youth.

When one gets his or her license, they will want more freedom. That means staying out longer. Now curfew is 11:00 p.m., but most want to stay out past that. There's always a party to go to, and the youth want to stay out with their friends and have a good time. Good times can lead to tragedy. Drinking, drugs, sex, and violence make curfew a good thing.
