Culture of Hate.
Culture of Self-Destruction.
Most obvious sign isn't the money, it isn't the wars, it isn't the fat, it isn't the alcohol.
It is that people hate their own next generation.
People hate children, and they hate the people who have children.
I didn't realize what I level of pressure I live in my parent and child-hating culture until I was at a restraunt event organized for only parents. One of my friends didn't realize what a culture of parent and child-hate she lived in until she went to a Mormon event with one of her friends. Another friend realized it when he ended up at a Muslim Pakistani event.
You people are poison.

Now how your going to remove someone from a plane is beyond me but they arrest unruly adults on a plane after it lands. Perhaps parents should be fined.

I see what you are saying..but personally, I would rather spend an evening with two dozen screaming kids then a restaurant full of snotty pompous windbags who act like their personal phone call is the only conversation that matters on the planet. At least with kids, there is still time to fix their issues..once they reach adulthood, there is little hope of change.
I said to him, "You are too old to be making that kind of fuss!" He stopped, looked at me, and then looked at Mom who started in with the "you poor thing," giving me a nasty look, and he started in crying again.
That's utter crap that there's a vast difference between parents and non-parents. Most of the people I know who are appalled by lousy parenting have children themselves anyway, but on top of that, just because somebody doesn't have kids doesn't mean they are blind and incapable of observing and analyzing what they see! ...

I mean really how often do you go out and have a meal ruined by screaming kids? Where are they eating? Chuck e Cheese? Showbiz Pizza on family night?
Problem: ohhhh noes this screaming baby is ruing my flight!
Answer: ask the stewardess for ear plugs 0r head phones' THEY HAVE THEM!
Problem: i cant eat and chew this here steak while that kid is screaming!
Answer: get up and move or get the balls to ask the parents/child nicely to please be quiet.
You know communication does go a long way. And not all us parents bite, just some.
