What will happen during the next depression or state of world war? We will be killing each other instead of pulling together. This is a TICKING TIME BOMB. We know a big crash is coming soon, that is mathematically inevitable. What we don't know is whether or not we are going to be able to trust the people around us to not to kill us while we sleep. I know this mentality doesn't help but unfortunately we will need to have this kind of mentality just to stand a chance of surviving when the SHTF.

The older generations have taken all the wealth, had the party and now it's time for the younger generations to pay.
Whether the younger generations ever realise this or what has happend or indeed pay remains to be seen......

I never said it was nice where I live, I hate it in the UK. But what I am saying is that nothing really has changed. There were thugs and louts around when I was growing up, and the current generation of youths are just the same. People always go on about how fearful of youth they are and how bad they have got, but I can bet that your elders felt the same way about your generation when you were young, and theirs about them, etc.

All we can do is hope that history repeats and the next generation rebels against everything the current generation stands for because the current crop is a disgrace.
They are not to blame. It started with the do-gooders of the 80's that took away the rights of parents to dicipline their children, banned corporal punishment in schools, and took away the powers of police and the judicial system to punish minors. We are now living with the consequences of these policies which is youth that has no respect for anyone or anything, that wouldn't even know what empathy means let alone feel it and have no conscience because there has never been any consequence to their actions.
The current generation of imbecilles are so pathetic that if it wasn't so sad it would be entertaining. I went to a concert last weekend and as usual, almost the entire audience watched the concert through their iphone screens as they filmed the concert instead of actually enjoying the show themselves. All they care about is uploading their footage to their facebook, myspace and blogs so that their online friends think they have a life.
