If you were to ask me who I think is most responsible for the mess that our Western Style Democracies are in, without need of a whole lot of thought, I would say that it is WE THE PEOPLE who are responsible.
But, it isn’t “WE” who DIRECTLY taught many of our children and grandchildren to be useless individuals, who think the world owes them something.
WE JOBBED THAT OUT TO OUR SCHOOLS.
In the BIG picture though, it really is WE THE PEOPLE, the Baby Boomers who are “MEA CULPA”, who are mostly in or around our sixties, who’ve raised selfish unpatriotic children who subsequently raised their own spoiled rotten children, of which far too many have no concept whatsoever of personal responsibility and obligation, in addition to having no conception of what it was that made our societies great.
WHY DOES EVERYONE HAVE TO GO TO UNIVERSITY?
When I was a teenager back in the 1960’s, things were just turning around in the world of academia, where prior to that, only kids who wanted to go into a white-collar profession went off from high school to university.
For the rest of us, we got jobs. Some of us went into blue-collar professional apprenticeship programs to become plumbers, electricians, mechanics – etc, while others got whatever jobs we could.
Some of us went into the family business.
But, there was no such thing as NOT working or blaming the world because we weren’t atop the food chain.
I went to university at night because I couldn’t afford it during the day, and I was not about to take-out a student loan. During my short university stint, I learned that my time was far better spent making a life for myself out of school, instead of doing drugs, playing hearts in the student lounge, knowing that I would never proceed to a post graduate degree in anything useful.
MY PARENTS MADE IT CLEAR THAT NO ONE OWED ME ANYTHING:
I won’t go through the litany of jobs I had while “growing-up”, other than to say that there were MANY – Most of which I detested. But, I knew without reservation that it was my OBLIGATION to work, since no one else was going to pay my way.
BESIDES – IT WAS EXPECTED OF ME . . . BECAUSE THAT’S’ THE WAY IT WAS.
Today, it’s a totally different story, since far too many of our younger people don’t want to get their hands dirty. They don’t want to sweat unless it’s in a gym. They don’t want to serve others. And they don’t want to work for what amounts to a living wage.
They want to go to universities where they learn NOTHING they can use with which to make a real living when they graduate, all the while running-up huge student-loan debts they cannot repay.
I recently asked one of my neighbor’s daughters what she was going to study now that she graduated from high school? Global studies she told me. All right I said. What is Global Studies, and how will you make a living from it once you graduate?
Her answer was studying poverty in the Third World, and working after graduation for a government agency to help alleviate that poverty.
I smiled. I wished her the best of luck. And walked away saddened in the knowledge that the LEFT had won yet another victory that I will have to pay for through my hard work and sacrifice.
I can go on and on about the children of friends and relatives who are graduating, or who have graduated from universities with diplomas that aren’t good enough to use as toilet paper, who’ve rung-up crippling debts without having the skills to do much of anything with which to earn a living.
HERMAN CAIN ACCUSED MUCH OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY OF BEING BRAINWASHED:
Cain was right but incomplete, since it is NOT just the Black Community that is brainwashed, it’s also a HUGE number of the White Community who have been brainwashed through an education system that is far more of a problem to the state and the people who go through it, than it is an asset.
Our young people are coming out of university, and EVEN out of grade school and high school with a YOU OWE ME SOMETHING attitude.
They know very little of their country’s REAL history, and much of what they do know, is either slanted the wrong way, or an outright lie, or a fabrication that was taught to them by teachers whose only experiences have been learned within the protected “Hallowed Walls” of the “Ivory Tower’s” of academia.
IN FACT . . . FOR SEVERAL GENERATIONS, OUR SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS HAVE BEEN TRAINING OUR CHILDREN TO BE WHINERS AND LOSERS.
When I see the IDIOTS protesting against Wall Street and the Banks, all across America, all I see is a totally LOST generation of soft and stupid young people without a future for themselves and their country.
BLAME – BLAME –BLAME!
The ugly truth . . . is that these young people who contribute nothing to anything or anyone, are doing exactly what they were taught in school.
I also see young people who are passionate Obama supporters who are doing what Obama does everyday – BLAME EVERYONE BUT HIMSELF.
I want these demonstrations to grow HUGE. I want them to be sustained through time. And I want them to become REALLY aggressive.
I want America to see what America’s LEFTIST propaganda riddled school system and government entitlements has produced, so they can understand how a do-nothing, know-nothing, narcissistic, self-hating American VILLAIN like Obama can get elected to the GREATEST Office on the planet.
As a hobby hay farmer, I know from personal experience that you REAP WHAT YOU SOW. And it’s no different in the results we see here and now by the way we have raised our children.
