Oh I do. I'm not the "everyone gets a trophy type" I didn't let my son name himself , and if they screw up, there is a lesson within the punishment. My stepdaughter's father is a classic deadbeat dad. I've gotten into it 28th my 13 year old and leveled with her. "I'm not your friend, I'm your parent, and I love you deeply, so much so that I refuse to let you grow up to be a $#itty human being." They know we work hard, and they work hard as well. All straight A students and all have chores. We don't stifle, we encourage creativity, but there is no beating around the Bush about responsibilities. My oldest was upset after returning from a winter camp in which there was a confidence building exercise where her peers were to write something positive about each girl in the group. She said every girl got something like hot, or pretty, and she got small or tiny (she is petite for her age probably due to her diabetes. I told her youbdont have to sorry about being hot or pretty, because you are, you need to be worried about being smart. Because any boy that is worth your time will be more attracted to whats between your ears than between your legs. The future does look bleak my friends . . .

Meh. Every generation has its share of do nothings and blamers. (It's all George Bush's fault types) (It's not a level playing field and that's why I can't do it types) (I'm a woman, I'm black, I'm poor, I need a safe space, I need you to pay for my birth control, you suck, etc. etc.)

It also has its individualists who understand what they need to do, figure out how to get it done, and get on with it!

And every generation has it's kitchen philosophers that have to tell us what was wrong with the last generation that screwed up this one.

You go, Millennials! There will be enough of you that get it and will take care of business and fly high!

If you say so. I'm a Gen X parent, I have 4 sons between the ages of 35 and 24, only 1 of whom was even mildly rebellious. All are well employed and 2 have their masters degrees. Perhaps they aren't like their peers, I really don't know. We encouraged creativity and rational thinking from very the start. Babies may not be able to articulate their thoughts but they can certainly learn a great deal before most parents believe they are capable.

Yes, food and shelter appear from magic in the grocery stores, you have an obligation to society, if you want to live in it..

Or lets do it the old way, see how a population act when society crashes..

Ever wondered how the Swedish model works in reality, or the Nordic model, its a cast system.. Change the name to socialism..
An empire crashes cause everyone is unique,, In our system, everyone has the same obligation..

This program of social engineering had roots with the political birth of modern feminism. Contrary to the common belief that feminism was about “equality” between the sexes, feminism was a means to socially engineer a docile population willing to work, consume, buy and die without question.


Bull squat.

I used to respect Disinfo.com. Now though I find no value to it what so ever. It seems all the posts it is making here are reprints of articles on it's website.

This and lately, they have been re-posting here pieces on metaphysical and spiritual speculations that do as much to spread disinfo as the disinfo agents it used to debunk.

So now they are passing off that piece of tripe about slandering feminism with no proof at all. Just a lame statement of 'fact' in the midst of a piece designed to drive a wedge between Gen x and Millennials.

They are not truth speakers, they are the enemy, they are AGENTS of DISINFORMATION

I'm Gen X.
I paid attention to the PSA overload during the era and used condoms.
Guilt free.

Exactly. "Those who think they are free, are not free."

Money plays a major role since the 1920's. We never had this issue until the white race started forcing people out of villages and claiming resources for their own good. Now Educational system is set to fail today. Pay to get educated instead of the other way around. Why else do people keep saying there seems to be a lack of educated children? Most of companies have already merged. No longer will you see more of a own business type thing due to lack of so called educated people. You will see 1 corporation in the future.

If you want to know how to drive or build something. Pay. If you want to learn a new language. Pay. If you want to farm food, etc. Pay up. If you want shelter. Pay.

You either stay in the streets, they pick you up / drop bio weapons(America) on you or you keep paying for things you don't even need.

Some say we are communists if we even try to go to village lifestyle again. But, do they know, they are just another brainwashed control monger. Divide and Conquer is working 100% well in the West. Farmers are fighting to death. Villages dismantled and force everyone to move. Bio weapons are used to experiment on citizen, etc. The Gov/Corps hadn't taken your homes just yet.

I feel that she is an annoying speaker, and rather imperious. What she says though is one of the better descriptions of Generation X that I've ever heard. Squeezed between two massive generations. Self sufficient.

Competition will come when the Army comes back to takeover after each and every country falls. So good luck surviving NWO.

Though I think the author describes the Xgeneration rather accurately (Deadpool is the perfect XGen-type hero, isn't he?)

I don't relate to the whining about Millenials. Every generation complains about their offspring and how useless they are.
Because they are different... it can also be observed that each generation, involved in trying to individuate by not being like their parents, end up relating more to their grandparents.

I have three millenial children, and I feel no reason to denigrate them. They've done fine - they have more education than I did, they got in less trouble, did less crazy risk taking than I, have handled relationships better than I.

My kids have shown some interest in my counter feminist views, but frankly, the current wave of extreme gynocentrism is concentrated in the US - my kids were raised in Europe and that just isn't an issue. Maybe that makes them not so much examples of the typical american millenial.

But like I said, every generation complains that their kids are not good enough to inherit the keys to the society. That's nothing new.
We might say that our kids retained a certain innocence and child-like sensitivity that my generation lost early on, and we have always tend to snear at such "weakness", because it scares us - we couldn't have survived our youth with such a vulnerability. It seems naive and dangerous to us. But we must remind ourselves that that view is subjective. I don't trust that we can judge yet.

Yeah, I got imperious too. However her description of Gen x along with a number of generalizations seemed very superficial to me. But yeah, she's making money doing it and my superficial evaluation of her is not, so there you have it.

“The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.”


Socrates said that 2500 yrs ago.

nothing has changed, just accept you're getting old.

People are responsible for their own attitudes and actions. The difference between right and wrong, and how to act to receive respect is not too difficult to understand. Don't push the blame on parents when its the individual who is responsible for their own destiny. The majority of parent's do the best they can. There's a time in life where a person needs to take a look at themselves in the mirror, and take inventory of their faults and try to change them for the better.

Parenting is a tough job today considering all the poor role models, reality TV which projects poor morals, easy internet access to adult sites and issues, relying on text communication instead personal verbal communication, music in which language is no longer censored or the message is immoral, violent or sexually explicit. There's just way too much negative influences that prey on the attention of children's minds today.

I'm assuming you're over the age of over 45? "The rapidly growing majority as the baby boomer's reach middle age". That's all easy for you to say. The OP just drives home the fact for me that you have a narrow point of view.
I'm 26 and i'm not apologizing for anything.
