Y'know, I think he's got it in one

 

Received via e-mail, origin unknown:



Looking at the behavior of Antifa/BLM rioters, the whining of the "woke" and the posturing of the politically correct, I reckon they all prove the truth of that!  Sadly, many of those who spoiled their children also failed - or refused - to raise their grandchildren.  Instead, they abdicated that responsibility to schools and the state, the local organs of Big Brother.  Because they didn't care, they failed to monitor what those organizations were doing in their name.  They let them get away with social engineering, and what is, in so many words, brainwashing.

That neglect, that sin of omission, has continued through several generations since World War II.  The results are what we see before us.  Half the country - generally, the younger half - is more than prepared to eagerly embrace Marxism and statism, the worst failures in the history of the human race, while the other half - generally, the older half - is mobilizing to stop them.

It's a bit late for that.  In fact, it's very late for that.  God grant it may not be too late!

    Maybe it's not that they didn't care it's that the continued devaluation of the currency made two income households necessary. The country became obsessed with wants over needs. The two working parents were too busy to follow what the schools were doing and trusted the people they hired.

    The devaluation of the currency has been going on since the Federal Reserve started in 1913. It got much worse after we got off the gold standard. When people talk about the hundred year plan to destroy the US, I think this is an integral part.

  3. "made two income households necessary. The country became obsessed with wants over needs"

    These are somewhat contradictory statements. I have a friend who has six children, works a decent job, and his wife raised and homeschooled the kids. They have done just fine but without the luxuries which are nowadays considered "essentials".

  4. I would add to Graybeards comments on currency devaluation that the drive to bigger and more affluent lifestyle is just as likely to be a factor. Average house size, number of automobiles, and so forth, general lifestyle, has been continually increasing in both cost (inflation) and scale. That drives the perceved need for more $$$ and dual earner households. Just look at average home sizes over the last 70 years. 'Starter homes' are bigger and fancier than the normal 'raising a family of 4' home 50 years ago.

  5. I'm a boomer,1955. My children are grown, educated, successful and have been trouble free to this point. I have remained married as so my children. We are not perfect. My generation has not left our children a civil functioning society. Period.
