That something they are missing, I believe, is suffering.
As ironic as it is, the world is full of it. Sometimes to enjoy a slice of bread you have to be hungry.
Current trends and today's pop culture seem to praise self worth and dominance above all. While good in some context, there is no balance in what
they preach - you can see this clearly just listening to any of the music people listen to nowadays. In today's celebrity culture, which has become
more than a role model for people, you can see this all the more.
If you don't agree with me, travel to a 3rd world country with a sliver of balance. Sure the adults may be screwed up still, but most of the kids
won't. They're glad to be alive more than being sad that they're not popular or some frugal thing like that. I come from a country where I know
people in their childhood who have seen outright massacres, I'm talking about a mountain of heads right outside of their house due to a genocide
They have more self worth than most American youth, despite not having even a quarter of what they have (sometimes not having the essentials - food,
electricity, shelter, water, etc)
Try taking your kids for a holiday to a ruined country. Commune with the people there, they will see how lucky they are... If the mainstream cult has
not yet made their mark...
