NordicvsWeird. For me, if I did 9 things well, I received a blank stare. If I did one thing poorly, hellfire and brimestone descended down on me. Consequently, I stopped trying to please anyone.
same here, my parents never acknowledged anything good i did, yet all hell broke loose when i did something bad. in this society we only see the bad
Calmer than you are, dude.

That in part could be blamed on the media, you never here a bout Mrs. Smith Who gave charity to the kids, you only hear of Mrs smith who got shot by the drug dealer... Considering I'm 15, My opinon shall be looked down uponBy most, But it is here, for those who are willing to hear it... I Don't see youth becoming more Corrupt, I see the world as a whole doing that... The problems that are happening are at Fault of the schools who choose to pass students on to the next grade when they can't read, Schools not getting mor on a personal basis with them, Parents who see only the negatives in the children, and Overall a world who only wants to see negatives in there children, there future. It is not All the fault of one single thing, rareley does that occuor in any instance of society. There is some faultto be placed on the kids of today also in that they are letting this happen... Never, Never would I say music is at fault, Music is a release from all the hell you get everywere else, not somthing that creates the hell, now maybe in a weak-minded youth, music could have that effect but not on your average, it would be the Parents fault, the schools fault, and the fault of there peers... The world today is desensitizing people to the things that you are calling youths corrupt for, So How can you say somthing like A kid shouldn't do drugs when there parents are enjoying a TV show about it, Are adults better than the youth in some way? How is that Fair? it Isn't, The world needs to grow up and mature and quit showing crap like sex everywhere on TV, And maybe they will see a change, but definatley not by throwing a fit over it.
I picked up a book about the political situation in Sweden a while ago. A bit of the text on the back says "More than every other young Swede doesn't think there's a point in being politically active, because it won't lead to any changes anyway. Youths are looking for new forms of organisation where the power structures haven't been set and divided a long time ago" - I think that if there's anything new about this generation, then it's that. Apathy.

TruceI picked up a book about the political situation in Sweden a while ago.

I would agree there, see my sig. ;) But Apathy caomes into the fact of where they have been desensitized into that by the things around them, to that lack of care. But also with the part of this generation that cares, comes a great change for reform and change, with a bit more of maturity, i believe it could happen
Good posts, SeVeReD. All this reminds me of that old saying: "An insane world makes insane people, and vice versa." I think young people are the only ones who really know why they do the things they do; perhaps adults ought to listen more carefully and not use them as a scapegoat by default. And saying it's the parents' fault is no answer either; it might be so, but parents were kids too, and they merely learned what their parents taught them or didn't teach them; and their parents' parents...and so on...passing the blame back generationally resolves nothing whatsoever.
What i have seen in my life of 16 years is that people are getting worse. As more and more "green loving people" come out and fight for rights like "you have to let that man that want to dress as a women have a job" youth has gone down hill. There is no more discipline in schools or at homes. You can't spank you child any more for doing something wrong because that is considered child abuse. You have to let your child do what ever he wants and if he does something wrong you just say "no johnny you don't do that" thats all no punishment, nothing. Do you think hes going to do what he did that was wrong again? Hell yes he will. Theres also sex on T.V and other sexual things that makes kids want to try out sex because now they are curious. Also sex ed in school. At my old school in cali we had sex ed from 5th grade to 12th. We didn't even no what sex was in 5th grade. When we had sex ed in 5th grade thats when we started talking about sex and wanting to try it. Did it stop us from doing it? NO, it made us want to do it. The also drug and beer safety in school. Had that since 7th grade. We didn't even think about doing that stuff until we had that class. Then thats when we wanted to try beer and drugs. Ever since the 1960's with the hippies are youth have gone down the hill. Its been more of a feel good way. What ever you want to do "do it". If you want to smoke weed go for it, want to be a transvestite do it. Theres no more morals any more, the law is not enforce. In cali police officers can not shoot at the person even if they have a gun. They have to shoot a officer before the officer can shoot him. Thats is totally stupid. Lets have a good guy be killed instead of the bad guy. What the beep???? If you get into a fight to defend your self and you beat the crap out of the guy because you defended your self your the one who gets in more trouble. If some one brakes into your house and you deafened your self you get into trouble your post to call the cops and sit there and let him take your crap. Sorry for going on and on but this kind of stuff gets me going.
I think its not mabey corruption but its just change. The younger generation trying to brake away from the old.
That's been happening since the dawn of time.
The biggest reason for the corruption of modern society is this: Business has taken rebellion, edginess, and the counterculture and has harnessed them to make a profit. They push sex, drugs, and rock n' roll to sell everything from dishwashers to childrens' toys to ice cream. This has made American pop culture,the product of these businesses, decadent and morally damaged. The reaction from this, epitomized by the Christian Coalition, promises a return to traditional values. Problem is, hidden behind the smut and filth is a wealth of societal advances in equal rights, social justice, and environmental stwewardship. Somebody who can afford to take the heat needs to step in and separate the slag from the steel. Question is, who?
Good point. Sad to say no one will rise up because they are to afaird. Most likley if some one does rise up they will A. Be "taken out" B. No one will leason. C. A revoultion because it is in our own government that is doing it. Are government should be standing up not leting them do it. Thats why i like bush because least hes trying to put a stop to People wanting to change there sex and stuff.
What's wrong with people trying to change their sex? How does that hurt anyone?
My point is, sex, titillation, and novelty sells. So the business world is selling us sex, titillation, and the latest fad, and we're buying.
