I’m becoming more and more annoyed with the state of humanity. It seems the notion of right has completely dissappeared from the world. Everywhere I go I see people trying to get away with a shortcut here, a corner cut there. By small degrees the world’s gone to hell. Next thing you know they’ll make a movie based on the A-team.
Nothing, well not at the moment. Having worked with the public for a while I can tell you parents are pretty much oblivious to the lessons they’re teaching their children. Every time a mother insists an under age child be allowed to watch an age restricted movie or that some policy doesn’t apply to them, they’re simply telling their kids the rules don’t apply to us. What do you expect in a society where kids call their parents by their first names and parents jockey for popularity.
So what’s that mean Mike?
It means the end of personal development as we know it. The contempt for the rules we’re breeding in our offspring is meaning kids are increasingly looking outside of themselves for the causes of their problems. We are as a planet becoming less self aware.
So what’s this ultimate right crap you’re talking bout?
Some would argue there is no ultimate right. What we should and shouldn’t do are relative. Fair comment. So relative to our current reality, what is the absolute right? Is that what we’re teaching our kids? Or are we teaching them it’s ok to wake up late and then break the speed limit on the drive in too work, as long as you don’t get caught?
Evidence of what we’re teaching our kids is all around us. Go walk round outside in an unpoliced area and tell me how safe you feel. We’ve socially devolved as a species by about 100 years and are heading back into the wild west where the only law is the law that can be enforced.
So next time you:
- Jump a stop street
- Break the speed limit
- Sneak food into the movies
- “Borrow” some stationary from work
- Cut-in in traffic
- Talk about someone behind their back
- Argue that the customer is always right when you know you’re wrong
- Cut in line at a fast food outlet
- Park illegally
- Submit a creative version of your taxes
- Overlook the cashier giving you too much change
- Cheat at a board game
- Put an empty milk carton back in the fridge
Think about the lesson you’re teaching and the statment you’re making. This rule doesn’t apply to me… Unless I get caught.
