A Generation of Sociopaths

I have been a staunch advocate AGAINST this freakin ME generation since it affected my life - it is THE most selfish desires, selfish wants, self seeking, self gratification, self satisfying and self deteriation - it is in itself, self destruction - but those involved cannot see it when they see their lives as blessed, they found the secrets, they are having...FUN...

The ME generation are kids who grew up with no direction, no rules, no supervision, no parental love and connection. It is the generation where it is easier to give up on a kid, ignore it, scold it, destroy it, etc...then it is to SHOW them what values and morals are all about. It wasnt about beating the snot out of them, it wasnt about runaways, it wasnt about all of that.....two family incomes, single parenting (done wrong), it was about having kids, but not RAISING CHILDREN.

I know what its like to be a single parent, WORKING....I did it all too. No money, no security, no ability, work-work-work....etc. I was there too. It has NOTHING to do with whether you lived in the projects or well off, it has to do with your choice on morals, character, rules....rebellion.

No one needed to turn to this ME generation, NO ONE. It is/was created by the lack of parenting.....and I really dont care if I get any flack on this one, its true. I was there, I was right there...and my son grew up to be a man! He grew up with morals, convictions, the knowledge of right from wrong, he grew up with unconditional love, direction, guidance..HE GREW UP.

So, with that said, here is an interesting article I think is a great read regarding this very subject:

A Generation of Sociopaths
Glenn Beck gets it. He understands something I’ve been seeing and writing about as a columnist for the last seven years. He understands that the downfall of America will not come from the outside. It will come from the inside. It will happen because we failed to pass on to our children the values that made our nation great – and to remind them to pass those values on to their children. You can read the rest here

Some great points of truth here are:

"me generation." … A generation that was brought up by parents who wouldn't spank them because it was too barbaric and were graded in purple pen because red is too frightening. A generation who got trophies no matter what place they finished.

When we replace belief in objective truth with moral relativism we are telling people they are the one true source of morality. And that leads them to believe they are all, in a sense, little gods and goddesses who should not be told what to do. Pretty soon we are spending all of our time dealing with little sociopaths who believe they are the center of the universe
