As a matter of fact recent generations are much more decadent then the boomers........
As a matter of fact you are wrong on so many levels.
But don't take my word for, Here is what one boomer we both can respect Rush Limbaugh has to say about it
And for some more stats see
violent crime rate has declined throughout the 1990's as well as The pregnancy rate for unmarried women has continuously declined through the 1990s and the abortion rate dropped by about 25 percent for both married and unmarried women through the 1990s , The teen Pregnancy Rate Reached a Record Low, More Teenagers are saying no to sex and Drug use by teenagers continues to decline.
There might be some signs of a "recovery" but when I speak of going downhill I am talking about (for one) MTV and the effect it has had on young kids and the bills that are piling up. Spring break is much wilder then it was in my days. Women flashing and sodomy becoming mainstream, Oral sex has become second base where as it use to be a home run. I believe illegal immigration is having a adverse affect on society. The debt is something that will collapse at some point. We cannot stay like this forever.
I think my main point is things seem to be getting much worse and while you point to a few articles that say the youngest gen might be ready to change things, we might have dug them too large a hole to get out of. It cannot be blamed on the boomer generation. I think most boomers are quite normal and the media has given the 33% of liberal, humanist, decadent loving democrats a free pass to make them appear to be the norm instead of the oppisite.
You say I am wrong on so many levels but our culture is going downhill and has been for some time. Maybe it will turn around and like I said in a earlier post the young people of today have a new powerful weapon that is the internet untill gov.org shuts it down if they do.
As for the more decadent part thats easy to see with women flashing becoming more common then not and sodomy becoming mainstream. The stats prove that more and more people are growing up in a single parent home and marriage is becoming a thing of the past. All that a gimme. So I am not wrong on so many levels as you say.I hope and pray things will turn around but I think it will take a spiritual revial and a return to Godly ways.
