Mankind has always been unnecessarily cruel and sought violence as the prime problem-solver. Of course you`re right, I just wanted to point out that it`s not just the last three or four generations, but a lot more.
The media we see and the world we live in, racism, sexism, emperialism, doesn`t help much either...
Observe the fall of man.
I have a theory as to why people seem to be getting more and more cruel that deals with this very matter:
Around WWI and maybe a touch beforehand, Parents were strict. They believed in hard work, loyalty, hoonor, but to an extreme. Children where practically living in boot camp at the home. So they grew up and decided that their children should have the same values, but not be so harsh with it, so they eased off and taught morality AND free will.
The next generation viewed them, selfishly, as tyrants. Their grandparents (The first culprits) became old and kind to their grandkids, to weak to be hardasses. So those children grew up to be rebellious: The 70`s. Lawless children thought their hard ass parents were the devil and decided that THEIR kids should live as they WANTED to. Enter our generation... For the most part, we view authority as irrational idiocy and live like savages.
Now, don`t get me wrong. There are exceptions.
We have laws against smoking in public places. Also, Even if I did get cancer from 2nd hand smoke, I still wouldn`t wish it on anyone else.
And I hope a close family member runs you over with a bus, Boadicea. :-)
that said, I`m glad it was reposted. It`s really touching in a sad kind of way. Though it`s kind of nice to remember that this works in the opposite way, meaning that the kids with really nice parents will turn out like that. :)
It was posted, what, a year ago?
Still liked it
So what? I`m an agnostic meat-loving socialistic patriotic part-time-misanthrope and that doesn`t mean I didn`t copy behavior I observed as a kid.And anorexia is a sickness, you should tell your friend that.
eg2 my anorexic friend whose parents are both obese.
Oh so you frequently visit the UK?
Why would anyone wish death, in any form on another person... You must need a really big hug.
not cool. shellie sad now :(
Hurray for tennessee... no smoking in public areas (restaurants, gas stations, stores, etc.) woot, no second hand smoke for me at restaurants! oh yeah, north carolina and virginia passed similar laws so no matter what direction i go, smoke free buildings.
spp, you wont be saying that when you get cancer from the 2nd degree smoke from the guy you sit next to on the bus, or when you go out to dinner
Hey everybody, let`s turn our country into a bunch of socialist democratic robots!!!!! =D
Boadicea, thanks for that. I honestly don`t see why you`d wish that on us though. No one deserves such a death and I hope that you, nor anyone you are close to has to deal with cancer.
"I truly hope that all smokers die cancerous deaths. Truly."
Nice sentiment. ?
And I just want to throw this out there for no particular reason: I truly hope that all smokers die cancerous deaths. Truly.
