Why aren’t they grateful?

Some days we can’t understand why the youngsters are so ungrateful that they are 1000x richer than a couple of centuries ago, that their lifespans are 2-3x a lot of people in previous times and that they’ll never contract polio etc. These accomplishments are trivially easy to document. Instead, the present is taken for granted. Unbelievable but true. The kids’ lives in school have been ruined by a teaching establishment that dwells on minor this or that which results, statically, in one group doing a little better than that other group over there. 2 generations of Americans are mostly completely ignorant of the tremendous courage and sufferings of their forebears. Can things be fixed in time to avoid a complete meltdown? We don’t know, but the media’s and establishment’s genuine loathing of Darth Tweeter suggest that signs point to no.

    Tending to be pessimistic, I’m very doubtful of this being a fixable situation. Tucker Carlson’s “Ship Of Fools”, catalogs this incredible decline. It’s really how empires end.

    A bit of clarification, my point is it may be too late. The dumbed down, poorly educated are already among us and in positions of power.

    Yep.

    Who would’ve guessed that having conquered hunger, many illnesses, and having technology that would have left thousands of generations agog, we would turn to cultural and intellectual suicide?

    It has all left my feeble mind grasping for an explanation. As a kid I recall being taught that if workers bees had nothing to do, the idleness would kill them. Perhaps that is what is happening to us?

    I can only speculate that if we were to suddenly return to a situation where the next meal isn’t guaranteed, and a person would have to genuinely work in order to survive, this PC/SJW/hate western civilization nonsense would end pretty quickly.
