There is one thing that history should prove to you and that is mankind is so set in his evil ways that they refuse to learn from past mistakes. Man tends toward greed and pleasure.
We need air, water and food for our bodies to survive, but what drives a man is the selfish ego he is born with for a reason. Man is so dense by nature that he wouldn’t know to do certain things for his offspring unless said offspring makes a lot of noise, which he does.
The same is true for grown humans. Unless you make a lot of noise, you will not get what you need. That being said, be careful what you scream for. Adults are supposed to get past the infancy and toddler stage of constant demands and expectations. With maturation they are supposed to be taught that the world does not revolve around them, regardless of what they wish to believe. They need to be taught that everyone else is identical themselves in their needs and basic desires and that they count just as much. This knowledge will help them develop what Christians consider the “fruits of the spirit.”
There is so much selfish, needless nonsense going on in our society these days it’s a wonder that it can function at all. When I was growing up in the 1950’s you behaved yourself. And before that time, you really behaved yourself because if you acted bad or even odd, everyone else would shun you and rightly so. Somehow more people actually cared what others thought of them. They still do, but many are taught by our liberal society that no one has the right to tell you how to live and they have to accept whatever you decide to do. That is not true. No one has any right to be at their worst, offend others or even harm them and think this is their “right” somehow. They certainly have no right to delude themselves into thinking doing something vile and downright evil is OK and no one better shame them about it. That’s kind of reverse intimidation or bullying. You’d better be OK with my sin or you’re the problem.
Good thing most intelligent people will never fall for that nonsense.
Sometimes I wonder who some think they are when they act like they are the only ones that ever shed a tear. This is with all mankind. No matter what race, sex or religion. The immature want to believe that they are the best or they’ve had it the worst. They are the only one that really matters and “mom always liked someone else better” and they are “so misunderstood.” It really appears that our liberal society is creating nothing but a bunch of mindless, weak, spoiled selfish little brats. This is no way to base a society where there once were mature adults running things.
This mindset is effecting everything in this country for the worst. It doesn’t help any that those in charge of the rest of us are not as intelligent, but have learned to be more crafty to make up for it. They have learned that money buys much needed control over the rest of us by taking over our news sources and every day you can count on an endless barrage of propaganda for “their side” whatever that really is. To me there is only one side and that is the side of right and if you are in your right mind, you will recognize it. The propaganda serves to deliberately confuse those that are not quite sure. The ones that were not raised in the Word to be strong in the spirit and know when they are being lied to.
Reminds me a little of that Buffalo Springfield song “For What it’s Worth.”
