There are two social changes that have brought danger into peoples’ lives for instance agricultural and industrial revolution.

The combustion from cars and other machines leads to pollution hence demonstrating the issue of environmental action discussed in chapter 16.

The manhandling of the Muslim leaders by the police shows how the there exist pre-judged assumptions that all Muslims are terrorists. Being considered as a minority in US, the Muslims are brought out as being exposed to racial profiling on the basis of the previous terrorist acts by various Muslim groups. As noted by Myres (2009), this act of prejudice is very dangerous in the society since it leads to suffering of innocent persons, since a behavior of a small group is generalized for the entire social entity.
