My Discussion: In the post-apocalyptic period, I believed that there were peaceful moments and the people had the love towards one another except for the intruders who infringed into the rights of the others (Artwood, 210). The post-apocalyptic era is understood as a period where people embraced civilization with maturity and love for the human race (Wells, 170). There are elements of development and focus on technological advancement based on the worldview of the postapocalyptic period. The readings made me understand that the people were not as peaceful as perceived in the era. The post-apocalyptic era was characterized by poor compliance to the law and the love between the individuals was lost leading to the callous acts (McCarthy, 112). Some of the major issues which arose in the post-apocalyptic era were the reduced criminal offenses of the law and the systems of peace and integrity. The making of weapons such as firearms and nuclear bombs which were used to attack the people in the Northern hemisphere was an indication of the loss of love towards one another (Shute, 250). Some of the issues include starvation and insecurity after World War III. The cataclysms which were present in the post-apocalyptic era resulted in the reduction in the peace and comfort on the earth surface. The most critical reading which made me change my perception was “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy which depicted the meaning of suffering in the post-apocalyptic era (McCarthy, 99). The father and the son had a difficult time amidst challenges and his wife committed suicide in fear of the unknown after a few and predictable atrocities which they underwent in the situations. I will approach the discussions about the change in culture and shift in paradigms by incorporating quality in the argument and the process of understanding what occurred after the world wars. The inventions in the postapocalyptic period led to challenges instead of positive changes which could be constructive. The paradigm shift is supposed to be viewed as it occurs rather than the traditional perspective which was based on a fallacy. My classmate’s discussion: I really enjoyed interacting with the course this semester because it was very interesting, inspiring and eye opening. The course was about apocalyptic culture and I got to read a bunch of wonderful books. I didn’t know much about active reading before. I did read books and enjoyed them but after the article I found myself reading many other books and it made all the differences. I never really thought that I even reading a book in a different way would have any effect on making the reading experience better and that was definitely changed. Before this course, I never really reached out to apocalyptic fiction to read. I think I was avoiding those types of books because of a belief that the content in these types of books were disturbing, sad, full of misery and that too with a sad Ending. I found that to be true but while reading I also noticed that it wasn’t just that. All the books I read were exceptionally well written and interesting. They carried so many morals and sentiments in them. These stories somehow reflected our reality and how we’ve been avoiding the possibilities of our carelessness. Even though endings were the thing about the storyline and what suited it better but I found myself feeling good in every ending because it felt like the only good option to me. In this course as I said I loved reading the material that was provided. There were new vocabularies to learn from and because it was so well written I got an idea about a good, cohesive writing pattern. The critical analysis part was my personal favourite. I got to look at the stories from my own perspective and give my opinion about a certain scene. As dramatic as it sounds, I think the activities and readings I did has helped me become more thoughtful and active thinker in general. The discussion was interesting too.To read other member's responses and understand different perspectives was very interesting. I realized that we were helping each other out with those discussions as I noticed my classmates introducing me to new perspectives and morals through their responses. The fact that even while reading the same story we all could come up with so many conclusions and have different ideas was actually very amazing. I wasn’t comfortable with the way my thoughts changed in the beginning. I felt as if I was way too influenced by books and that I needed be more careful. But later, I realized that interacting and discussions had a positive effect on my attitude in general. I’ve learned to be more opinionated and confident in the things that I believe, respect others opinion, understand that we all have different perspectives and that all of them can be right at the same time. I am now very open and welcoming to any healthy discussions. I am sure that I will be actively involved in conversations and discussions, activities in the future to gain more insight on any subject. I think the course in general was absolutely fun to study and inspiring simultaneously. Follow the instructions to response and ask one question(around 110 words): ...
