    I agree with much of what you say. It is easier and harder nowadays in many ways...

    I just don't want people to forget about how things can be simply because they think that things have changed and that is just how it is. Life is what we make it...
    My teachings are easy to understand
    and easy to put into practice.
    Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
    and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

    I do, and that is why I presented it in that fashion...to get people's ire up!

    Unfortunately, like with the last thread about this, many people could not get out of "Trash Bodi the Troll" mode.
    Ahh I see what you mean now I took your "trollness" seriously and thought you were being misogynistic. Sorry Actually English isn't my first language either.

    "Life is 10% what we make it, and 90% how we take it." I forget who said that, but he was right.

    I think that it is the opposite...90% of what we make it. But I get your drift.

    “As for the decline of society..what decline? People live longer, are healthier, Discrimination is illegal (unless you're gay). Technology allows us to connect with others across the globe, diseases like polio have been wiped out....etc etc etc.
    People having different kinds of families or relationships or ways of raising their children is not a decline, it's called democracy and how others chose to raise their children or with whom they chose to raise their children is no one else's business.”

    So because they live longer means there are no problems? There are more diseases, certainly more sexually transmitted diseases than ever before. Polio gone, AIDS and HIV here taking millions of lives every year. Suicide rates especially for teens and young adults has risen. So have crime rates and rates of woman raising children by themselves. In some ways technology is good and in other ways its bad, porn sites, illegal activities online…the loss of jobs to computers.

    Oh yes there are different ways of raising families……. but are they all good? And who are they good for? Good for the children? Good for parents?

    “Discussion is one thing, blame is another. From your posts it seems as if you are blaming all society's ills on women and their role in the family. The last comment is just childish.”
    And I don't mean to put the blame on anyone here really. I think the majority of parents do try to do the very best they can. But I truely think balance is the key. No child deserves to be raised primarily at day care facilities. Doesnt there have to be sacrifice somewhere?

    Women play a very big role in society, one that no man can begin to match. Like it or not she is the one who gives birth to children. And with that act, brings responsibilities. Whose responsibility is it if a person has a child? If my neighbor has a child, does it become my responsibility to feed it, nurture it and take care of it? Does it become the responsibility of the school? the daycare? Does it mean anything anymore to be a mother? What are the responsibilites of a mother today? Has it changed over the years? Have childrens needs changed?

    “No choosing to raise your child alone or with whatever kind of family you have is no one's business. Harming a child is a different story, sad that you can't see that.”

    Well many have different opinions as to what harms children today.


    “We entered a new era where society placed a premium on protecting children's innocence and acknowledging their vulnerability.”

    Today society really places a premium on children and doesn’t seem to protect them at all. IMO they are used and abused in all sorts of ways. They aren’t even children anymore, they are treated from early childhood like adults. Children today are sexualized at much younger ages. Look at the magazines and television that they read and watch.

    I remember watching Nelly win the Kids Nickelodeon Choice awards a few years back. I watched it on television with my niece. For those of you who don’t know Nelly, he is the one who wrote a song called Pimp Juice. I just could not believe my ears, so I Googled the song. Pimp Juice (She only wants me for my pimp juice) Thicky thick Gurls (Lookin like a lollipop waitin for the lick girl) Wrap Sumden (Weed is actually a medicine for me, you know)

    I mean am I just out of it or what.......but isnt pimp juice sperm?

    Kids!!!! And they voted for this guy as their favorite rapper. Can you believe any parent would even let their child listen to lyrics like this? And its on Nickelodeon. Don’t parents care? Kids are targets……..and sex is used to get them. Sex sells, its just tragic that kids are who the entertainment industry goes after.

    Did you know they make thongs for girls that are 5 years old? why does a five year old need a thong?

    “Now women had the means to limit the size of their families.’ Oh yes, now woman have the legal right to kill their unborn children.

    I just.. dont.. know....... but I do know this. I thank God in heaven that my kids are the ages that they are, 22 and 25. I would hate to have very young children and be raising them in todays society.

    It's really quite simple. We spend much more if we all live single. And we engage in much less critical thinking if the system forces everybody to work. So laws get passed to make large families living under one roof illegal. And we hope and pray for hurricanes to hit places like New Orleans. (For those of you who didn't know New Orleans had few car owners than the inhabitants of NYC. Most of the New Orleans people didn't work in taxable jobs. And large families spanning many generations was the norm. All of this is evil in the minds of a politician that gets his money from big business which gets it's money by forcing people into consumerism.)
