There is a definite problem here being addressed. Parenting has gone down the drain in recent generations and its not isolated to one group, its
across the board. There are more dead beat dads today (among all races) than ever before and the divorce rate is around 50% (probably over). It seems
the worst parents are having the most children. We have two options:
1. As a society, quit being so materialistic and selfish to the point where inanimate objects are more important than the life of another. The fact
that we even have a child support system shows how bad we've dropped the ball. Everyday there's people on TV getting public paternity tests for the
entertainment of the masses. They actually celebrate when they are not the father because it means they'll be able to keep their green paper for
Other than that, its glorifying affairs and rampant irresponsibility. Having grown up seeing this, its no wonder my generation is the most
disfunctional yet that views marriage and being a parent as a game instead of a responsibility. Ever hear the term "Baby's Mama/Daddy"? Good trend
to set for those growing up.
2. Accept the fact that pop culture has dug far too big a hole for any large scale functionality to come out of society and let the government fix it.
Whats better: having a kid watch an alcoholic beat him up his whole childhood and end up being a drugged out waste (continuing the chain) or having
the government come in and make sure your child actually learns something in their lifetime aside from where to get drugs? I don't want to hear any
complaining because it should have never came to this point but it has. If this leads to government "indoctrination" of a generations belief system,
again it should of never came to that point to begin with.
Last year was a new baby boom as it set a record for most births of children on american soil in history. 60% of the births in the teen demographic
were out of wed lock. Tell me honestly and somehow present to me a legitimate scenario in which that does not result in total disaster in 15 years.
The welfare system is taking a bigger hit year after year yet everyone just brushes it off "Thats just the way it is I guess".
Whether the government running a child's developement will result in disaster remains to be seen. What has been proven, is that american parents and
their "freedom" to mess up their child for life isn't working. I wish this was already instituted when I was born. I'll say with confidence that
the social structure would be far greater today. Freedom without any common sense on how to use it responsibly equates to being a slave to stupidity.
Everyone whines when their freedom to permanently damage their body is taken away yet an attack on free speech is ok if you disagree with their point.
Is it 2012 yet?
