i could write a book about this, the truth is people don't really want to hear it.
it involves many things that when pointed out, you would be labeled everything in the book.
here's a clue, think back mid 60's to early 70's look at the everyday family, and then the counter culture that sprang forth and look at the children there after of each and every generation.

Time was America was the home of the free LAND OF THE BRAVE! for whatever their faults early Americans were brave, whether charting new frontier in the so-called wilderness,dared to separate themselves from the super power of their day to go it alone,or others resisting encroachment by would be settlers,others dared to survived in many ways rebelling against slavery, upholding the view that their dignity and sprite will not be broken and my children's children will be free for we shall over come,to the relative new comers who think take a chance with the nothing I have in this new land and I may win.
This is usually glossed over with comments like "for whatever their faults were". Look, infidelity is a personality "fault". Genocide and debt slavery go far beyond that.
So are Americans now a nation of pussies?
It always has been. If you don't give us what we want, we'll take it by force. I can't think of a more "pussy" thing to do. And it's still happening...
