You're right Rick. I think a lot of it started when we were kids, when Moms had to start going out to work to help with the finances. A lot of it is greed. People aren't satisfied with what they have, they always want more. Then it affects the children because their Moms are not home to take care of them. They are sent off to daycare or babysitters who are only interested in a paycheck. It's not their responsibility to raise the children the way the parents want them raised. As the kids grew older they had to find more activities for them to be involved in so that the parents did not have to deal with them because they were so tired of their own responsibilites with their work.
Most kids nowadays, have no clue what it is like to use their imaginations, or to just daydream. They have no outlet for the stress and pressure they are put under. Colleges want to see tons of outside activites on their applications. It's no wonder these kids no longer know how to cope. It's no wonder there is so much mental illness. I don't believe that is the only cause. I think about all the processed foods these children eat all the time. The chemicals they are exposed to. The ever growing antibacterial products on the market. It's no wonder there are numerous strains of new illnesses developing that are resistant to antibiotics. We certainly did not have all that growing up. It was normal to play in the dirt, make mud pies and come in at night filthy and have a bath before bed. We had more energy and did not have all the technology to make us couch zombies! We did not have the media showing us how to make bombs, how to destroy things, how to be rude and defy our elders, how to have sex and foul language.
I could go on and on but it would just make me too sad. The world grows more evil each passing day. It says in the Bible that it would before the second coming and it sure has. We never used to fear for our lives just going to the market or to see a motion picture. People had respect for one another. We were brought up that way, and to have morals and values. Now there are people who could care less who they hurt out of their selfishness and greed.
I sure hope that what they say about karma is true. God help us all.
