Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The government is not education people enough about the importance of living a balanced and healthy life style.|
As the modern society develops, increasing people are concerned about the quality of their lives. And this is where the controversy arises. Some people believe that government should do better to guide citizens to live a healthy life. But opponents who deeply disagree with it argue that government has already done a good job. From my perspective of view, the latter is more acceptable.
First, government has already put a high value on the people's health. For example, students in primary school or secondary school have physical education class and music class. And teachers of these classes are all proficient and qualified in order to make students well-acquainted with these subjects and capable to live a balanced and healthy life in the future. Besides, the government also allocates a great deal of money to build museums which enable citizens to learn culture and history for free. They also build many parks which ensure that old people have places to walk around. All these create excellent conditions for public to live a healthy and balanced life.
Second, living a balanced life, to some extent, is a personal issue. Although primary education has already noted people the significance of health and taught them the way to live a healthy life, there are still many people who live in a bad habit. This can be illustrated by my brother who is indicated to smoking and alcohol. He has a well education and now works in a big company with a bright future. But my parents are deeply worried about his health. So, no matter what the government dos, no matter how many efforts the government makes. There is still many people who will not live in a healthy way. So it is useless for government to educate people so much.
So many things though the government has done, there are still some things should be done by government to make the situation better. They should make some advertisements to remind people about a balanced life. Or they can even reward for the healthful behaviors and punish those unhealthy habits.
In conclusion, since the further policy is hard to carry out and it seems kind of undue, we can safely conclude that the government has already done enough to lead people to a healthy life.
