When did society become so wimpy and need to be taken care of?
When did we become a society that is unable to care for and think for ourselves?
We depend on the government to tell us how to raise our children. To tell us medically how to care for them. What they should and should not learn about in school.
We let the government dictate what is safe for us. What kind of car seats to put our kids in. Whether or not we wear seat belts. What speed we can travel down the road. And what kind of games our kids can play on the playground.
We have reached a point where we will never need to take responsibity for our own action or choices. You have unprotected sex and get pregnant? We know how to take care of that don't we? You get into a car accident? It could't possibly be your fault, lets blame the car manufacturer, the people who laid the road, and oh for the heck of it the fmily of the man that invented the wheel. You develop lung cancer. Well those pesky tobacco companies are totally to blame. I mean they MADE you buy the darn things. Therefore they should pay for all of your mediacal treatment. You kill some one. It could not possibly be your fault. Let's see, who can we blame. How about your parents for not loving you enough, or the kid down the street that called you names as a child. Come on give me a break.
Oh and we can't forget about financial issues. If you buy a house that is way beyond your means and then have it reposessed it is definitely not your fault. Lets see it is the governments, the banks, and oh yeah the rich. But don't worry the government will bail you out and also help you out finacially for as long as you need ....no need toreally have a job. Oh and they will throw in some medical help too.
I read a n article the other day about a couple that is suing a man that left his car running for the death of their teenage son. Someone stole the car and killed the teen ager. This all happened at 1:30 in the morning. Oh and the boy was walking home from a party where he was drinking. I do not even know where to begin with this one.
What happened to the days when you made your own choices and lived with the consequenses?
Sorry for the long rant.
