Today, people want things the easy way. They're not always willing to sacrifice their time and energy to better themselves. They essentially want "something for nothing." Well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand why this is the norm now. It's now the norm because people are able to do just that. Get "something for nothing."
We see it with our children. Kids have electronics that cost parents thousands per year and for what? Well, we parents say it's for their safety. "Little Johnny needs to be able to call home." To me, that's translation for: "his friend has an iPhone, so we have to get him one so that he doesn't feel bad."
We see it in adults. Guys don't have to display much chivalry and/or class to get sex from a woman now. Why? Because there are so many thirsty women who have little-to-no requirements to give it up. Would you work for something that's being thrown at you? "Yes, Johnny does cheat and sell drugs, but he can change if he becomes a father." Translation: "I don't think that I can do any better than him."
SMH. But, it all starts with the children. Because today's children are tomorrow's adults, so if you fix the kids then the rest will fix itself. Make them earn what they get. Make them get good grades. Make them do chores. Make them respect themselves so that they may learn to respect others and we can nip this thing in the bud.
America needs to put a hard hat and some work boots on more than any other country right now. Stop allowing this laziness to go on when you have the power to fix it yourself.
Are you ashamed at how lazy we've become in society?
