I Get No Respect

Ask anyone in America why our kids are so screwed up, and they might say because they have no respect for their elders. They are coddled, and spoiled by too many over generous relatives, and a society that has worked overtime to create a perfect world.

What we fail to understand is that Utopia is an old idea which has maintained its desirability. We just don’t accept the fact that building Utopia is impossible. Looking into the mirror we see that our kids are obviously spoiled brats. Their only desire in life is to sit in a safe space with a smart phone in hand, or a video game player. Ask them what they want to be when they grow up, and you get a blank stare. That is one reason the Affordable Care Act is so expensive, it allows a kid to stay on his parent’s insurance plan until he is twenty-six years old. It doesn’t make sense to me at all because we urge them to vote by the time they are eighteen, and to join the military when they are eighteen, but they can’t find a job to get their own health insurance until they are twenty-six.

I love to listen to old guys tell me their life stories, and I have always admired those of them who left home at age eleven to become independent. My own father and mother  left their homes at age sixteen to migrate to a better life. When I see a sixteen year old today, I see a toddler who must still be left in a playpen to stay safe.

The video below depicts a real life story of a youngster from another country where parents still have control of their kids and the kids still respect their elders.

Eventually, this would lead to decline. Family, Company, Culture, Nation, whatever…
