Recommended Posts

I know TMZ labeled it as Popeyes madness.

Sorry, I think it more of an indication, that society has crossed over from stupid to extremely and utterly stupid.

No life is worth a dumb arse chicken sandwich.

Folks have been killed for less than a chicken sandwich before.

I think society, as a whole, is slowly but steadily improving.

if we didnt have the almost weekly mass shootings, maybe.

But, you could be right, maybe just with mass media, we hear more of the crap that happens.

I read an interesting piece earlier in the year looking at the increase in mass shooting and the decline in serial killers.

Funny you mentioned serial killers.

I just watched a 48 hour episode where they went into this one specific cold case that resurfaced. The guy had killed a few in one state and moved to California and killed a few here and that, and it took a while to track him down.

But you are right, less Ted Bundys these days.

I think we forget the evolution of the American western migration story. Things are worse and better than they were.

Really?   I think society is going downhill at a rapid pace, at least in the US.

Depends on what you are looking at.

I think America leads the decline but it's worldwide. I watch a lot of dashcam crash videos, dashcam road rage video. Russia is probably as bad, and Europe isn't far behind. It escapes me why that is. Society, especially younger people, are just different nowadays. It's like any slight, any perceived disrespect has to be met with the nuclear option of retaliation.

As a Gen Xer, in my personal experience the generation that is older than me is more entitled and more likely to find offense than the ones younger than me.

Perception I guess. They're all younger than me. We'll just say it seems a certain segment of the population is more inclined to blow up over nothing.

Interesting.    As a Boomer, I find nothing particularly praiseworthy about my own generation but I don’t find the subsequent generations to be any better.   I feel the entire society is very entitled and unwilling to even consider any collective sacrifice so that things will be better in the future.

LOL.  We aren’t rounding people up in putting people in concentration camps,  people aren’t slaves, no one is starving to death,  diseases are mostly under control, children aren’t being forced to work.  Segregation is gone,  people aren’t being shot for joining unions.  
 

The highest murder rate in this country was during prohibition.  There is no civil war.  We have no draft where 18 year olds are forced to be in armed combat. 

While there is certainly a lot of things that can use improvement a decline means things used to be better.  Which clearly they we’re not.
