Next Are we better off today than we were 50 years ago? Is the way we live today really better than 50 years ago?
Is our democratic and capitalistic philosophy really serving our best interests? My answer is NO.
I am posing this question because I would like to know the opinions of others. I will provide my opinion below, and invite you to provide your own answer to my question! Fifty years ago,a family with only one breadwinner was more than able to prosper.
Families, and social connections, were central. Children and their parents behaved because of social pressures. Crime was minimal, and back then we had no problem letting our children out to play until the streetlights came on.
The community as a whole watched over everyone. Our children could walk to school with no concerns. Starting in the 80's, crime stats began to increase in proportion to immigrants entering North America.
In the early 90's these stats really began taking off. Gang crime and turf wars became increasingly prevalent.
Concurrently, drug crimes and drug issues increased to a previously unimagined level. Our law enforcement agencies became less and less able to deal with these crimes. Governments budgets just didn't allow enough money to pay for the officers needed to dal with these crimes.
So, as with any business that is in trouble, governments started telling their law enforcement people that they have to work longer and harder.
Now, in addition to their regular jobs of patrolling the streets, the officers would have to answer the calls of the public.
Doing this has taken the majority of our police officers off the road, where they used to patrol for crime. I think the general public across North America at least would be shocked to know how very little time the police spend actually patrolling.
We no longer feel even remotely safe letting our children walk the few blocks to school. Our justice systems are a joke, as we watch guilty after guilty get slaps on the wrist.
The morals and standards we grew up with in the 60's, 70's and 80's seem to have been thrown out of the window by our elected officials.
Almost daily we are being told to redefine ourselves, despite the fact that we are native North Americans.
Our governments are more interested in immigrant welfare, which is illustrated time and time again via its actions. We citizens of North America seem to be continously told that we have to change our views of ourselves.
I want to understand why its us that are required to change. Why aren't the immigrants required to know our language scustoms etc? Anyhow, I have ranted too long. My question is do you think we north Americans are better off today than we were 50 years ago and why or why not?We take a look back at how life in America was 50 years ago, in The world has changed a lot, mostly for the better.
