I can't call all younger folks wusses, but there's enough to establish too many are used to mom wiping their tears, when they don't pass level 8 in their video game. The pattern is set, reality is hidden again, and they are woefully unprepared for the harsh moments of life.
Regardless of what is taught by recruiters, teachers, parents and doting grandparents, life is filled with moments of toil, mindless tasks, and long hours of work. It's how our ancestors survived. Survival came with young deaths, and miserable lives in the later years. You produced, or starved.
Today, there is the lure of free money, easy days, and no responsibility. However, it comes with a price. The price? Liberty. If you are basically a ward of the state, you are only as important as the state decides. At this point, the result is an easy life with little possession, the willingness to lie for more of the free stuff, and ignoring the fact the importance of existence hinges on resources. Resources are plenty, but not forever. When they run out, the older folks are first, and then those younger find they are forced to work meaningless lives to slow the final decline of the collective.
I don't think there's anything that will change the decline in the United States except harsh times. They're coming, and those unwilling to demand their liberty will become slaves to the bureaucrat elite. For many, they will deserve it. Nothing is free in life, and expecting so has penalties.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Observing Some Younger Folks

Yep. Trained to follow the sheep in front.Delete
i work at a military college. i'm constantly amazed at how quick the cadets will lie straight to my face for even the smallest reason. and the lamest lies you've ever heard. i mean 5 year old type lies. it pisses me off to no end so i screw with them and embarrass them in front of everybody. i know, not the military way, but maybe it teaches them not to lie, to me at least. there are some truly great ones but they are few and far between.ReplyDelete
They've been taught there are few consequences in life. It works at home, but the real world stands on their backs until they either straigten up, or become more fodder for the collective.Delete
I've been trying to work up a post based on that for a week or two. Hasn't come together yet.ReplyDelete
I'll definitely read it when you write it.Delete
