Baby Boomers, Unintended consequences squared. Take a bow!

The beginning of the end to our culture. We have you to thank, my generation. Post WWII. Veterans whose sacrifice saved us from needing to speak a language other than English.
Our evolved Family with Vanity, Narcissism celebrated have negatively impacted our more traditional values...that society’s life blood. Unfortunate for us many with misguided thinking, now identifying with the “Jones” gave birth and became parents
Welcome to the world of Me, and mine….We as a generation, my generation did not mean to totally mess things up, it was simply these ”unintended consequences.” So much for vision, and prudent civic responsibility. We didn’t want to just exist anymore, our Parents didn’t want us to either….our parents were trained and marketed to to believe that their role was to make life better, and for the generation after that for them to have it better, so on and on. With this logic…one day no one will never have to do anything anymore, because less is failure.
What was it, …I mean, really, everything we are about for hundreds of years, generation after generation, really when, how and why have we LOST of Family tradition. I don’t mean just the “American Family” I mean the core, foundation of what constituted life, period!
This is family. You know..children, Daddy, Mommy, and children, with all one thing in mind…to live a just and fair life…so really what this starts with is the breakdown of family and all that came with it. Values.
Where did society, our government and our values all begin their downward cycle?
That my friends is what this is, a cycle…going down now and eventually our children’s children will have enough smarts to change the direction of the pendulum…maybe even stop it for a while at its zenith.
