Were children not taught about improper touching at a certain age?
Should parents be held accountable?
I heard one time where a father sold his young under-aged daughter into a sex traffic operation. Doesn't being a parent bare some responsibility for your children?or...Are they too busy working?orAre they too busy in their own s*xual deviant ways? I don't know...just throwing out random thoughts.
where were the parents to protect their children?Hi Johnny That has always been my big question too. But from the news I read, some parents were too busy working to pay attention to their children. Some were so ignorant that they saw the abuse was just a trivial matter. And the worst is.. some parents even abused their own children. I am glad I had the best parents in the whole universe.
Hello Kal,I vote to bring back traditional family structures...otherwise, I fear what we see here today might be the tip of the iceberg.
I would say it would be difficult for young adults to have values and morals instilled in them if their parents were not doing that with them since they were 2.We can ask the same question about most of these mass shootings...more so the school shootings were young children were involved.
Shouldn't there be a loving bond created between the parents and child as to when the child becomes a teenager, they can confide in their parents?One child, now young adult, interviewed said she...(something to this effect)...that she thought it was normal or okay what the s*xual deviants were doing.
Johnny,There seems to be more crime, bad in this world than ever before, or we’re hearing about it more than ever before.If these people could only take that energy they use to do bad, and use it instead to do good, they themselves would feel better, the world around them would also be better.Those who do bad are eventually doing themselves in. Seeing those around you in peace and happiness brings one peace and happiness as well.
That is the right question to ask. Where were the parents?
I’d attribute school shootings to fame by any means necessary, an infamous gothic backlash to PR. At the same time as society being prescribed record levels of antidepressants there is an image of happiness. So much promotion of your perfect life and at root bottom the troll is motivated by the belief that others are far more happy than they really are. The worse thing for depression is the sense that you are alone. Notorious is a sort of backlash to the anti-depressant-fuelled positivity machine, it’s marketing but not as you know it.
If you notice crimes that couldn’t make the headlines are going down. Crime isn’t a means to an end in the way someone without a tv might steal one, no, crime is the way of making a name for yourself. The other thing about the positivity middle class is that it’s evaporating from existence. You could say the younger generation aspires after the wrong things but real prospects are diminishing. Once upon a time in the west being middle class could be achieved both easily and legally and it seems that as real opportunities diminish the positivity pretense only grows stronger.

But you’re right parents are the last line of defence. Think of the look in your Mother’s eyes the next time you reach for the knife. Generation never had it so good are not all bad. They don’t understand the pressures we are dealing with as western posterity is forced to meet the gutters of Calcutta in the middle. But don’t kill yourself or anybody else. This is a painful readjustment from first world to developing world sooner or later we’ll stop torturing ourselves when the people who rule grew up in a difficult time filled with competitors. The baby boomers every third dollar came for free has elapsed into the new reality of inherited debts.
Although it’ll be some time before it does. The ageing population will smother the life out of the economy to ensure the highest rate of pension is paid. As soon as baby boomers were old enough to leave university they privatised them but they’ll see to it that they remain a burden on public till until they’re 100. Anyway this is the infanticidal context posterity is dealing with. We are now waiting for the first western nations to sink under the boomer watch to elect a non-boomer. But there will be a wait. One generation had a golden ladder reaching down which they ascended and pulled up behind them. Today we inherit this great expectation but with a grim reality of trillions in the red. We are coming off the back of fruitless hyper-ambition and subsidised successes.
Not that I believe there’s one answer to the problem of notoriousness but I do believe deteriorating western conditions are part of the reason. It’s something in the way inequality has been maximised and it’s monumental effort put into appearing happier/better off than you are meeting decline. It’s promotion running out of praise-worthy things to promote in a frustrated ambition. The past has built up the expectations of the young as the future decimates our prospects. If you want the same house your dad had, you’ll have to work twice as many hours and that’s just the way it is.
Most cases of child abuse here have been historic. They occurred at a time of so-called traditional family structures. Stay-at-home mother, working father.Abuse can happen in any family structure. It is mostly carried out by a trusted person, a relative or friend. Abusers are clever and manipulative. They will always find a way.
The parents are probably on a place like here assuming the taxpayers of prosperity will prop up their pension funds.What should be happening is a mass exodus from sites like this as the older generation desperately reconnects with its kids before their swamp goes bankrupt. In future there might not be a free place for you in a nursing home or a Fernando to wipe your arse. All the saving you never did should be making you logout from here.
I single out here because it’s social media before social media. Truly encapsulates just how much novelty-seeking has replaced family time, the emerging preference to have no human physical contact and the related desire to live virtually and at a distance. To relate to others completely by proxy until the weight of never looking someone in the eye plays a part in how we all behave. Disposable towards and estranged from other people. CS is halfway towards living in a video game.
Especially the school shooters. I lean towards video games and distracted parents being the cause there. The masses and the shitholes are a bit different. I don’t discount living virtually as part of the reason life is cheap but I add frustrated ambition into the mix. Knife crime is in part the ghetto looking up at ivory towers at the same time as having next to no chance themselves. Partly the product of being given the worst start in life in proximity to those who went straight to the finish line in a taxi. The problem lies between how important status-whoring has become just as acquiring status becomes neither likely nor easily gained. In the west there is a middle class based purely on appearance waiting to collapse. What we are dealing with is an extremist take on style over substance bottoming out.
It’s like apartheid without the apartheid. There’s an appearance-based elite and inequality that has f*ck all to do with merit, but we can’t hang people on a 51% chance they did it neither. A worse life for your kids should also include an authoritarian element, Liberty is based on having the incentive to do the right thing and we’re a position now where that incentive has gone but the police state of brutal punishment for doing the wrong thing is yet to arise.
