11/07/2005: "rudeness"music: none
Perhaps this is the best of all possible worlds, but it seems to me that rudeness has hit an all-time high in this country. Maybe it's the kids who don't respect their elders, or the elders who'll answer their damnable cellphones anywhere regardless of who they may annoy, but that to me is an issue that is neglected by the powers that be. Of course, the powers that be relish money over all things, so rude folks are to be tolerated, since they also tend to be stupid, therefore more easily seperated from their money. It's a shame I have to waste words on this matter, but obviously our institutions are doing a horrendous job of teaching our youth, and have been doing so for the last 30 years. Some call it tolerance, but I prefer to call it what it is: a total lack of discipline.
We should bring back the old days, when children were seen and not heard. Now parents don't watch their kids; the television does, or the computer, which is just a television on LSD. No wonder religious fanatics are sprouting up everywhere. Nothing like desperation to make people clutch at straws, for the peace that should already be established, but is sadly lacking due to the lack of taste and insatiable greed of the ruling class. Something should be done, but all I can do is have anxiety attack and be called a jerk. To hell with all the obnoxious brats, and the authority figures who let them get away with it.
