There are a lot of people out there that will argue the point that society is no worse off now then it was 40 – 50 – 60 years ago when I was a kid. My answer to them is;
I remember when the doors to all churches were open 24 hours a day, if some sinner or little grandma want to stop in a pay a visit. Can we do that today?? Are you kidding me. Some degenerate would either rob the place, vandalize it or set it on fire.
We hardly ever locked our doors back then. A person could sleep on their front porch without the fear of being mugged in the sleep – we didn’t have to worry about our kids being snatched off the streets and kidnapped – didn’t have to worry about getting shot while watching John Wayne on the big screen – didn’t have to worry about the subway train we were riding getting blown up – didn’t have to worry about some crazy son-of-a-bitch going to a school with an AK 47 and wiping out dozens of kid.
Tell me, where the hell did we advance?? By inventing some robots that put half of the country out of a job and his cousin was laying pipe with your old lady while you were at work?? If that is considered advancement; they can shove it where the sun does not shine.
These same mentalities or behavior patterns has wormed its way into every facet of our lives. No one or anything is sacred anymore.
I would relinquish every convenience I have, cell phone, computer, TV, even air conditioning to turn the clock back to civility and a more peaceful, stable society.
Unfortunately; the kids today will never experience what people my age have. THE GOOD LIFE.
If what we see today in our disruptive/destructive society, people consider progress, they can have it.
One example only, it may sound hard to believe:
I never knew anyone that was on drugs where I grew up or hung-out-with, either in the neighborhood (it was a tough one), or in the USMC where I went 3/4 away around the world . Is it possible that they were present and I missed it, possibly BUTT not likely.
Was booze a big thing?? Absolutely, BUTT the end result of both are entirely different. A drunk get sick and lays off for a few days, BUTT a junkie never put the dope down.
If someone got out of line in the neighborhood, the boys took care of it with a few Louisville Sluggers and that was the end of it. We didn’t worry about the cops; PC – it did not exist. Tell me; which environment would you rather live in??
Those facts alone are only the tip of the ice-pick and some of the indicators/sources of the problems we have in this country and around the world. They are all tied and linked together.

Where do you think many of the ideas/fantasies these nut cases come from??
It all comes down to the dollar$. The big money players would rather sacrifice our kids then take that trash off of the market.
It is a changed world. Folks, keep your kids safe, your doors and windows locked, look behind you when you are walking and if you are forced to defend yourself with a fire arm, I hope your aim is good!!
Teach your kids; Don’t trust ANYONE. Trust is earned not given.
