Another poster started a thread about divisiveness... and then created divisiveness by his own extremist and misinformed post. What we see here is an excellent example of partisans who don't care one iota of looking for solutions; they just look at who to blame things on.

    So, back to the thread concept. What do you think are some of the reasons that we see people having such an issue with gratification delay? I see it as a reaction to technological advances.
    It is true that standards of time have changed. I don't have to drive to the job interview the day before to make sure I don't get lost, or leave 2 hours early in case of traffic. I have apps on my phone that take care of that. They read my email and remind me of my job interview, tell me when it's time to go, and offer to give me navigation. And then there's Amazon Prime 2-day shipping and possible drone delivery of groceries.

    But, all of that aside, I think it's important to remember that these people can probably just be summed up as assholes and idiots.

    So, how about it? Are we becoming more selfish? Is this lashing out like depicted in the story a result of people feeling like they are being too tightly controlled? What say you?
    I say that our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.

    It seems I may have a differing view.

    I hail from the "two ears one mouth" school of learning. Will you speak to the highlighted above ? I ask not for citations; only your awareness based on your life's learning.

    I look forward to listening.

    I did in post #21. I see the enhancements that technology has brought to us as being a major reason for difficulty in delaying gratification that many people have.

This enhances my technology presentation and adds to it neatly.
    Look at the expanded Black Friday and (now) Thanksgiving hours. It's simply feeding the beast. And when you stop feeding the beast, you can't be surprised when the beast gets pissed.

    I'm not so sure I buy into the "kids these days" argument.

    Because you didn't have the internet to shed light on these types of stories back then. The fact is, we are nicer, more civil, and a safer society than we have ever been.

    Sure, I shop at Walmart often, and the patrons are quite diverse. And yes, there is "trailer trash" shopping alongside urban trash, and neither one is likely to vote republican. I'm sure CC will be along shortly to admonish you for your partisan hackery. Or is that only a one way street?

    What partisan hackery? By asserting that republicans also shop at Walmart?

    You just ****ing said you shop there often. Use your head.

    All true. So much is automated for us that we have "started" to live in a society of entitlement. Used to be that one would remember how to get to a place... one would pay attention the first time. Now, we don't have to. Plug in the address each time. Entitlement and laziness.

    But, all of that aside, I think it's important to remember that these people can probably just be summed up as assholes and idiots.
    That is true and an important point to note. Not everyone goes to that extreme.
