The fact that the list of the things right with society today would be shorter.
Society is evolving, or more so... mutating with each generation. When the children grow up and become parents they are more lenient than their parents was thus allowing children to experience life at a much younger age than themself and at a much faster pace. Technology is helping to experience life at even more rapid rate.<br />
Many things that was taboo just two generations ago are completely acceptable now. Governments and laws are going to be more heavily relied on to keep our communities safe. Because in the world we live in today, common sense is on the brink of extinction. It gets worse with each new generation.
If we stay in the past we will never evolve to something grater. To generations ago we were worst off in many different departments and now that's improving. Every new generation brings something new to the table. Who knows within the next generation and the next could be the answer to a massive problem we have today. Maybe a bit of mutation is what we need.
This generation is smarter in different ways to the one before and that's why you mabye could not see there intelligents of today. Some of the most important and amazing people had the same problems of other people feeling the same way towards them.
I'm not saying this generation is perfect for example there is so many child pregnancy's but in saying that the generation before frowns upon abortion and would think that its taboo to talk to a 14 year old about safe sex.
So I don't think staying the same is going to solve anything. I think that we should except the problems but not competently. We should try and find the balance, and look at the situation with an open mind to get answer that we need.
Parents no longer teach their children morality or self-respect.<br />
Parents allow the media and government, both morally bankrupt, to teach their children what to like, how to act and how to conduct themselves.<br />
Kids are taught that they have to fit in, their opinions must agree with the masses, otherwise they will be outcast, which is "bad."<br />
Love has been thrown into the trash, instead séx is the new "love" and people are told they may have it wantonly as long as it is "safe."<br />
There is far, far too much focus placed on having a "healthy" séx life, as opposed to having a healthy love life, one filled with mutual respect, admiration, loyalty, compassion and so forth.<br />
Kids are told that drugs are OK, as long as those drugs are only marijuana and not something "more serious."<br />
Innocence/virginity are no longer seen as admirable, rather, they are seen as things that must be eradicated so that one can fit in with society.<br />
Far, far too much hyper-séxualization of both genders.
Oh, good point authorrunknown :o
Conservatives being allowed to breathe.
The corruption early on. When I was a kid, the only 'bad words' i knew were 'stupid' and 'Hell'. I didn't know what sex was until I was in junior high. Kids these days curse more then teenagers and I recently talked to my young cousin and she was giving me an accurate explanation of where babies come from..... and she's 8.
So you think that education is the key to corruption. That you would rather not know anything in a blissful bubble then be prepared and have knowledge?
people think the are owed something without ever having to work for it....and having some people agree with them and give them stuff
so true, they have quite the large amount of self worth too, makes them crumble in the real world where no one is telling them how great they are all the time.
Or, they absolutely hate themselves and think they deserve nothing, which is sadly common in teens.
Too many self-righteous, sanctimonious people with two-bit opinions on "what's wrong with society today".
people think that you are a child unless your 16 or 18 and above then theres the fact that people will believe you if you say you are poor and dont get out much but then dont believe you when you say you can use perfect grammar and punctuation among other things people have a twisted sense of belief basically so basically people think about age more than maturity and have been confused by their schools into believing one thing then not believing another.15
That you have to be a size zero or ur fat! -_-
For what it's worth. I beg to differ.
Forget my opinion. What is wrong is greed is widely accepted and respected. Watch these fools dote over rich people.
You know what's wrong with society? The fact that adults over 40, blame every teenage ever for the problems in the world, like riots..and stealing, fighting,gangs,ect. The older generation forget that they gave birth to us, they complain we're fat and we spend to much time watching Television and using cell/mobile phones..when they bought us them, infact an adult made the invention. Teens and kids are treated like we are all idiots just because we've grown up in a world where technoligy has been with us our whole lives, it isn't our fault!!
The older generation takes no responsibility for anything and just balm it on teenagers because they have no knowledge of our generation and just base there opinions on what people say and stereotypes. They are narrow minded and will not even open there ears and hear just because we just teenagers and we "don't understand" but I think there the ones that don't understand today problems as they don't understand today's generation. But I do believe that if I didn't say that some of the teenagers were to balm I would be rather hypercritical.
Your generation are the ones that have "given birth" to this generation in a physical and metaphorical kind of way.<br />
Its just that your generation refined it and posted it every where to sell your products and make ******* money!<br />
If you're asking what right now I'm talking about sex sells and the fact that 70% of music is about sex or money. The fact that you push slutty ******* retards on tv and social outlets to make money and now your complaining of the consequences!!!<br />
You will blame every one for this or you can admit its all your own faults even if you just let it happen!!
~entitlement (some thing for nothing)
everyone pushes for more (human nature)
~social (fat 0 sizes)
produced to make money
~Indifference to violence
news outlets manipulating and selecting reported news/money/control
~Idolatry of celebrities
to make money
been made socially acceptable
~Lack of common sense
become unpopular/tough to conform (rigid social structure)
~misguided beliefs (age maturity)
rigid social structure means you dont need to think for yourself
~conform or die
~people who ask other people opinions to confirm there own beliefs
overwhelmed by other problems becomes lower on the list
~no love just sex
~drugs are ok but some are not
cannabis is bad but oxycotton/aspirin/cigarets/caffeine/alcohol which causes more deaths are ok
social outlets sexualised
There's not a lot of love being taught today for the self or others
It does not get the point. At all.
Over generations money has been used to gain power, seperating the world. If your loaded then your powerful, shouldnt be like this at all! poor people are less respected and are seen as lazy or unworthy individuals just because they arent as fortunate. everybody should be equal and trade as equals, its a shame!
People pay too much attention to what really doesn't matter. People are the way they are because of the people they hang around, their neighborhood they grew up in, their families, TV shows they watch, and the music they listen to. It's all about sex, drugs, money, and the latest styles, but there is more to life than all this bull.
