 “Man found nothing but grief in the company of his fellows all being almost ‘selfish, self seeking, cunning, egoistic, brutal and aggressive, thus man in state of society were like hungry wolves each ready to pounce on the other’s life with all its ferocity”. –HOBBES

In the mid 1990s, our ancestors were pure in love, honesty, loyal, and passionate among the individuals. As we retrospect about our society men were diligent, excited for charity, no impartiality, united and cooperated for the betterment of society. In comparison, modern society men want a state of peace, goodwill, mutual assistance and preservation. Hence the peaceful life was often upset by corruption, man are forced to face such an “ill-gotten circumstances”.

However, man is born in society and bred in society, nourished and nurtured in society, from childhood to adolescence, from adolescence to youth, youth to maturity, from maturity to old age till up to death, men live in society, men depends on society for protection and comfort, men need society and society needs  them. In daily life man makes a huge contribution in society but some unbearable fellow human being who exacerbate it.

Today, the interest of some man is seeking solidarity, believe in wealth and question individually in what sense do I belong to society? In what sense does society need me? That kind of unbearable fellow also is born in society, bred in society, participate in society and develop his personality. Why this type of person is lacking? Because they have high standard of living, in behaving and acting as member of society they are the ones who stab from the back.

Since the condition is intolerable men are giving up the roots of wisdom. The practices of maltreatment, fear, arrogance, stubbornness are on the increase. A curse has been there because of egoism, men are forced to live in full fear and continuous danger. Every man needs a peaceful, equal and happy life. But since it is uncontrolled by proper social forces, a differences arises among the people between stronger and weaker, poor and rich arose. The noble and the savage are related like single rotten potato ruins the whole society and this type should be excluded nor should society accept them.

Eventually, the society is a web of social relationship it is based on cooperation not division that inferred from working together for the attainment of a common goal. Presently the contentment of our society is uncongenial, loyalty and honesty are uneasy because of the selfishness, loving and care are evanesce whereas charitable become avaricious. Therefore, the transitions of our society lead into chaos
