Consider a modern society and reflect on what it looked like hundreds of years ago.
Often, society is unrecognizable. Throughout history, sociologists have wrestled with different ideas and models. There are three main theories of social change: evolutionary, functionalist, and conflict.
The evolutionary theory of social change gained prominence in the 19th century. At first, social evolutionists asserted that all societies must go through the same sequence of progress. Modern theorists believe that change is multilinear. Societies can evolve in different ways and different directions. The functionalist theory of social change teaches that society is like a human body.
Each part is like an organ. Emile Durkheim , a major leader in the social sciences, believed that all parts of a society must be harmonious. When one part suffers, all the other parts must adjust. The functionalist theory believes that society always works toward stabilization. This means social change. The theory also fails to factor in race, class, and gender.
The conflict theory states that society is by nature unequal and competitive. Karl Marx spearheaded this theory. More often than not, the rich and powerful control the rest of society by exploiting vulnerable groups. This sows conflict, provoking people to action. Social change occurs as a result. The conflict model evolved over the years. No society stays the same forever, but what specific causes drive it? Social change has three main triggers:.

A bigger population affects the dispersal and availability of resources. An increase in immigration or emigration also affects society. New inventions, discoveries, and the spread of ideas contribute to cultural changes.
Consider the effect of the internet. This example shows how social change is not always beneficial to everyone. New ideas about gender, race, religion, work, education, and so on also change a culture.

Governments often commit human rights violations against their own people. Social change can draw attention to these injustices, dismantle destructive structures, and help societies transition into better systems. These changes can occur quickly and violently through civil war or conflict.
Through elections and legislature, the change can be more gradual. Lasting impact is one of the markers of social change. The most effective social movements tackle issues at the root instead of only looking at the effects. As an example, to address homelessness , we must examine why people are homeless in the first place. Long-term measures are also needed. Social change often occurs when individuals decide to work towards a common goal.
Most activists can point to a specific movement or person from the past that inspires them. Many social movements lean on the understanding that social change is slow. Those fighting for change now know they might not reap the benefits, but coming generations will. Climate change activists are keenly aware of this fact. They understand that healing the planet takes time.

Much of the discussion so far has talked about population growth as a major source of social change as societies evolved from older to modern times. As just one example, the number of school-aged children reached a high point in the late s as the children of the post—World War II baby boom entered their school years.
Идти приходилось плечо к плечу, носок в пятку. У испанцев всегда было иное представление о плотности, чем у остального мира. Беккер оказался зажат между двумя полными женщинами с закрытыми глазами, предоставившими толпе нести их в собор. Они беззвучно молились, перебирая пальцами четки. Когда толпа приблизилась к мощным каменным стенам почти вплотную, Беккер снова попытался вырваться, но течение стало еще более интенсивным.
Да еще хвастался, что снял ее на весь уик-энд за три сотни долларов. Это он должен был упасть замертво, а не бедолага азиат. - Клушар глотал ртом воздух, и Беккер начал волноваться.
Нужно быстро пройти в кабинет Стратмора, но, конечно, не чересчур быстро: Хейл не должен ничего заподозрить. Она уже была готова распахнуть дверь, как вдруг до нее донеслись какие-то звуки. Это были голоса.

Подобно киноперсонажу, в честь которого он и получил свое прозвище, его тело представляло собой шар, лишенный всякой растительности.
Но стрелять не понадобилось. Халохот был мертв. Беккер отшвырнул пистолет и без сил опустился на ступеньку.
Скажи мне, что происходит. Сьюзан прищурилась. Ты сам отлично знаешь, что происходит.
Сьюзан не могла не поразить идея глобального прорыва в области разведки, который нельзя было себе даже представить.
Сьюзан молила Бога, чтобы Хейл по-прежнему был там, на полу, катаясь от боли, как побитая собака. Других слов для него у нее не. Стратмор оторвался от перил и переложил пистолет в правую руку. Не произнеся ни слова, он шагнул в темноту, Сьюзан изо всех сил держалась за его плечо.
- Стратмор хмыкнул, раздумывая, как поступить, потом, по-видимому, также решил не раскачивать лодку и произнес: - Мисс Флетчер, можно поговорить с вами минутку. За дверью. - Да, конечно… сэр.
Кто это такие? - переминаясь с ноги на ногу, спросил Бринкерхофф. - Всевидящее око, - сказал Фонтейн, вглядываясь в лица людей, которых он отправил в Испанию. Это была вынужденная мера.
