    Well, that's just fantastic. In other words, you don't even have your own nostalgia to base your opinion on, you've got someone else's nostalgia to work with.

    So apparently they're forgetting about America's ups and downs and how they happened both before and after she "went to hell."

    They may be honest by your estimation, but by mine they're forgetful at best.

    yes. the memories of our families and loved ones are shoddy. but the revisionist nonsense they teach in schools now
    is just so purely crystal clear. this isn't about "ups and downs". every generation has "ups and downs". this is about the
    disintegration of society as a sum total. i's suppose dey's didn't learn ya'll in skool 'bout dat, huh?

    I like how you see an actual difference between basing your perception of America on shoddy memories and basing it on "revisionist nonsense." Too cute.

    Re: Is an affair a dealbreaker

    One need not be dishonest to be wrong.

    If I just think about it at a very casual, surface level, high school looks great from where I'm sitting. No money worries, I buried myself in an extracurricular I loved and haven't had as much time to do now that I'm in the real world, more stable relationships and environments... sounds great.

    And then I remember how limited I was in what I could do. I remembered how much I actually hated the herding element of mainstream education to the point it nearly made me mad by the end. I remember having to "make due" with the available selection of people because I didn't really have much chance to meet anyone who wasn't in high school. I remember how much less sophisticated my, and everyone else's, mode of interaction was and how many problems that caused. I remember having to deal with legal custody BS because I was a minor. I remember how much it sucked being a hormonal mid-teen, and how much less happy and more erratically emotional I was than I am now.

    Upon closer inspection, those "good old days" actually sucked compared to the present. If I keep my observation at a very superficial level, I can pretend it was better. But in reality it wasn't. Not even close. When I really think about it, I wouldn't go back for all the money in the world. Ugh.

    Our memory erases pain on purpose. It's easier to move on with your past shrouded in an opioid-like haze of happiness.

    Even being young, I can see my mind doing that already. How much worse do you think it is in the mind of a 70-year-old? Why do you think older people tend to struggle with change?

    "The good old days" may exist in the foggy memory of someone struggling to cope with the 21st century, but the history books tell us a completely different story. The history books tell us people are healthier, more free, less subject to violence, and happier than they have ever been. And in fact, this is a general trend through-out all of human history.

    Who are you going to believe? Someone who runs to their past in order to avoid having to deal with a future they can't cope with, or reality?

    Lew, you don't get it. We know that every word you say is the gospel. It's the whole truth, nothing but the truth. You speak no opinions, just facts. So naaaah. You don't need to provide links to backup your claims.

    All eyes are on you. Fire away. We all crave your wisdom and knowledge.

    I'll give it one more try. I'm saying:

    It's silly to knock people for relying on what you think is an unreliable source of information, while you yourself are relying on a source of information which you have admitted is unreliable.

    You're saying:
