You know, I’m not really sure how to respond. I do feel that people today are much more socially retarded, less intelligent, and have less common sense than they used to, but then part of me wonders if I’m just becoming a typical old person as I age, and fail to see the goodness around me. You know, 'these kids today!, ‘there’s no good music any more!’, ‘these kids are lazy’, etc.
Im 16, and, I also feel the same way, a lot of people I find lack basic common sense, depriving yourself from thought makes you do stupid things, stupid actions, so on and so forth.
However, I think that we only think this way because we ourselves have developed our own common sense ,and, that because others lack common sense becomes so apparent, we are only forced to think that way. (Yes, things that are so rudimentary are missing in many people)
However, all the statements ie: There’s no good music any more that you have said, I would clearly fall under that category of “kids” so to speak.
I guess, you must simply pick n’ choose who has common interest AND common sense
my two cents
Nice, coherent post for a ‘modern kid’ Maybe I just didn’t start caring until recently, and missed all of the stupidity that I encountered earlier in life. The generational gap always seems to tick off the older generations, and I wonder if that’s just part of what I’m experiencing.[/quote]
Well there are one too many reasons or possibilities as to which why we feel like this.
It could be an issue of misunderstanding, and, that we simply cannot adapt to the changes in society, and, those who become a product of the change, we see as “lower” in a way.
Another issue may be of bad experiences, and, that we only see it that way because we simply have just seen the wrong people, doing the wrong things.
There are one too many reasons as to why we think this way, but, in the end it’s a result a change, and, for that change, we must adapt to it, else, we will become like a typical 80 year old.
Maybe you felt like this suddenly, because, you no longer started to change with society, but, rather changed against it.
