Creative Writing: Manifest Function
In a land far far away and long ago there was an abundance on game
animals until hunters came and slaughtered animal after animal to sell to near
by restaurants for profit. Time passed and many became rich but the once
abundant forests were now some how empty and game-less. Something had to be
done! That\'s when mayor, John Enviro Mental the II of New Brunswick decided he
would ban the listing of game animals on the menus at near by restaurants to
stop the pilfering of the land. He chose the menu ban because he still wanted
for there to be hunting but not hunting for profit. He brought his proposal
before the city council where it met resistance, but being the accomplish
politician he was, he knew a bribe would get them into a passing the law kinda
Some of the Manifest functions John saw was the preservation of game
that would be brought about if he could stop hunting for profit by taking the
game off the menus at the near by restaurants. However latent functions occurred
with the passing of the law, the amount of people who suffered food poisoning
from the meat cooked at the restaurants went down.
However latent dysfunction\'s occurred, somewhere ville, their neighbor to
the east, who\'s economy was propelled by their firearms and ammunition industry
suddenly had no customers, and promptly went bankrupt. A wave of unemployment
and bitterness swept through the town, and the people became angry at what the
foolish mayor of New Brunswick had done to their city!
Back in New Brunswick things weren\'t so good either, people who once made
their living by hunting, were now living in squalor. They were forced to turn to
a life of crime and mug people on the street to get money so they could eat !
With the recent crime wave that struck the city the mayor was losing
popularity and the town began to turn against him. People in desperation for a
solution began to get crazy ideas like burning down city hall or hanging the
mayor. Well when the people of Somewhere ville moved to New Brunswick looking
for a job they also brought their ideas of revolution.
3 Months after the bill was passed the mayors house was burned in the
middle of the night. He came out of his burning house to a angry mob. The angry
mob promptly hung him from the tree in his front yard.
Overall manifest functions: To reduce the taking of game from depleted forests.
Overall latent functions: Reduced food poisoning from under cooked meat. Overall
latent dysfunction\'s: Crime, unemployment, the mayors unfortunate death.
