The problems that plague or society can laregely be blamed on two things.
The destruction of the familiy unit, the lack of love and affection that youth receive, the exponentially increasing youth crime rates, lack of jobs,
poor economy, and so on can ALL be attributed to the introduction to injecting women into the workforce in the 70s and early 80s and the
capitilization and glorifying of divorce.
Now im not saying that women should be able to work, or that people shouldnt have the right to divorce in any way.
For many people, men or women, in abusive relationships or where one member has become unfaithful, divorce is a valid options. What i am referring to
is the men or women who decide that for some reason their partner just doesnt cut it anymore, either sexually or in the looks department. Or the
people who stand to make financial gain from divorcing their partner (usually the woman) and this being the sole reason for the divorce. Divorce used
to be a shameful practice for both parties unless the reason was valid and was not common practice. In todays world, divorce has been turned into
something glamerous and exiting, the stars are always doing it and get lots of attention for it, people are profiting off it it, and because of greed
and excessive lifestyles it has almost become a social norm.
Divorce destroys many childrens lives and many adults working and social lives. We need to stop divorce from being socially acceptable for the wrong
reasons and also we must install checks and balances in the system to prevent one from coming out of a divorce being more financially secure than they
were in their marriage.
As far as women in the workforce goes, it has taken away from children having a stable parental figure in their lives to be there 100% of the time to
give them direction and to teach them skills and prepare them for adulthood. Most people i knew growing up were latchkey kids and basically did
whatever they want because their parents were either not around to stop them or were too busy to care.
The solution for this would be not to prevent women from working but rather in duel parental households, only have the member who has the higher
income work untill such a time where the children are self sufficient enough where both parents can work without any negative effects to the child or
children. Not only would this help to bring back the family structure and help instill values in our youth that we are slowly losing, but it will also
boost the economy as there would be more vacant jobs and less money supply needed in the system which would bring inflation down.
As far as single parent families are concerned, while many may be good parents with good values the sad truth is that there are many who are not. For
the single parents that work once again we see that the children do not have the correct supervision as do duel working parents and they also lack
time spent with parents for learning and caring. FOr the ones who arent working and possibly living off the "system" the children are growing up in
an environment with less opportunity in life and lacking the life experiences that we all consider a part of growing up (vacations, team sports or
even simple things like going to movies and such) this creates a social gap between all.
The absolute worst thing that is happening in society is that the poorest and least educated of people are the ones having the majority of the
children. Honestly there are many individuals these days under the age of ten that a very broken individuals and this is mostly thanks to the people
who chose to have children who didnt have the means of properly rasing them either through poverty, neglect, non education or lack of support.
We are in big trouble in the next couple of years if we dont do something about this soon. There are far too many children now who have social
problems, health or mental problems because of drug addict parents, lacking education or skills to become functioning members of society, sociopathic
due to lack of attention or love from their parents, and who lack basic opportunities in life to succeed.
Dont believe me? Ask any grade school teacher about increasing child behavioural problems, lowering test scores, lack of common knowledge/skills,
increasing social and mental delayments and so on. They will tell you it has increased ten fold in recent years. Also ask any child servies worker
about the horror stories they see and they wil also tell you its on the rise. Even your local telephone/ cable repairman can tell you that the stuff
they see go on in peoples houses is getting real bad and is increasing rapidly.
There a very simple solutions to these problems but the government doesnt have the balls to put their foot down, people dont have the guts to talk
about it, and basically everyone is too afraid or too greedy to give up what they think is their comfortable lives to do anything about it.
