In reality- a society is commonly measured modern when it is industrialized. Modern societies are likely to have excessive personal possessions. This societies show a cultural, liberal growth as well. And also put an increasing emphasis on equality and education for everyone as seen in the wide-reaching civil rights movements. Colonization and increasing political elements are also key aspects of modernity. It puts an emphasis on politics and distinct economic systems, such as capitalism, that are distinctly different from the traditional barter system. Other factors include literacy, being a nation-state and urbanization. Most facets of society have a modern example, such as secularism, for lifestyle. Modern societies no longer farm or produce products at the subsistence level. Instead, they make products to sell. People typically do not survive on their own and need to buy items to live.
This is especially seen in modern societies that have education as a top priority for citizens. Diversity in society allows for richness and variety, advancing innovation which leads to economic growth, improving access to jobs, producing culturally vibrant and varied communities and preventing stagnation.
