5 basic elements of unhappiness
According to durkheim, who is seen as the father of sociology;
1- Becoming blind: In traditional societies, there was a sense of belonging to the family. However, as the individual has become more important in the capital order, an individualist understanding has come to the fore. The nation and the state have lost their former popularity and more global people have begun to catch up.
2- Durkheim, although an atheist, knew the importance of religion for society. Religion was a glue. Capital order could not put a concept in its place. This problem caused individuals to fall into space and become unhappy when they move away from religion.
3- Capital order; had made man individual. In traditional society, man could not take his own decisions. Her family would decide instead. For example, he left the important decisions of his life to his family, to whom he would marry and who he would be friends with. Capital society freed the individual. This caused depression.
4- Capital society pumped more greed and envy to each other. Besides, it was said to individuals that the harder you work, the more successful you work. However, individuals became depressed when they could not reach their desires.
5- Capital society broke the norms. So it broke the codes of society. However, in the French revolution, it was desired: Let's break the norms in society. People live freely.
Come see that this did not happen. The nation's DNA structure has deteriorated. Because from the manners to the moral norms, the society was dragged into chaos because the ossified norms of the society were destroyed. Eventually, an unequal, disrespectful society emerged.
To this social order; Durkheim said Anomaly. In other words, it was a consciousness of society, which was formed by the abolition of deep-rooted norms in the traditional society and lost with the ambition and passion of individuals. It was a situation that encouraged fast consumption.
