The ripple effect is a term used to describe a situation where, like the ever expanding ripples across water when an object is dropped into it, an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally. I experienced this principle in Physics in High School in early 70s and I never knew is relevant to life situation. The ripple effect is based on the understanding that we are all connected, these connection stretch like an incredibly, interwoven and complicated embroidery. Examples of ripple effects could be found in Economics where an individual’s reduction in spending reduces incomes of others and their ability to spend. In sociology, it can be observed how social connections can affect situations and outcome is social change. Every time we communicate about human welfare and injustice to humanity, we start a ripple effect.
The uprising ripple effects in the Mid East are long overdue and it is happening at the right time and the citizenry has a clearer definition of their needs and the tools to achieve the change. The social movements are everything we do and think, this has affected the people lives and their reactions in turn affect others in other countries. The choices the social movements made have a far reaching positive consequence which carries the capacity to change the globe in a small ways for better governance. The sit unyielding individuals who has considered themselves as lifetime head and sees it as birth right to occupy the government house forever should rethink at this point, the ripple effect(s) is/are at their doors.
The social movement has use the principles of the ripple effects to magnify their actions and their effects based on the belief that energy of our intentions, through both thought and action, does ripple out through time and affect our environment for much needed change. The communication of social movements in the Mid East starts a ripple effect and followed outwards incrementally. These ripple effects experiences simply give us the opportunity to mold the electorate into a clearer definition of what they want and better course of vision for their country. Life takes care of life when allowed. It is only after the clay has been molded by the potter and put under the heat of the flames that it becomes a pot. RIPPLE EFFECTS- social interactions and information has been disseminated and passed from community to community to broaden its impact on social change, injustice and crime to humanity.
