    Are the young doomed?

    While perusing some classified ads earlier today I noticed someone offering a 20+ y.o. Chevy truck for sale with rebuilt motor and transmission, essentially a work truck or starter automobile for someone. The seller posted this in the ad: "This was supposed to be my son's truck but he can't get it together"

    This problem appears to be epidemic. A friend I've known for 35 years has a son who is now 27. This kid spent time in the Army so you'd think he'd have *some* self-disciple, but noooooo. He cannot hold a job, he's had more than one automobile repossessed, and he lives at home (and does NOT pay rent or household expenses, or help with any household chores). My friend is a standup guy and has always administered appropriate discipline on his kids, so I'd think this kid would have turned out better. I ask my friend, "Why don't you show him some tough love and kick him out?" My friend's response: "He'd be living in his car (or on the street)."

    I know of contractors in trades who are downsizing because they cannot find good help or even anyone who wants to work. I really don't know what to make of this situation, except to note that these youngsters *are the future*, whatever that means. lol

    I suppose we're all doomed.

    I was talking to someone the other day and he advised me how a friend of his has a 16 y.o. son who has zero interest in getting a car and DRIVER LICENSE, he'd rather hang out at home playing video games than chasing girls. Then this fellow and I started talking about all that we were interested in at that age was getting out of the house and chasing girls amongst doing other things with our buddies - but definitely NOT hanging around the house.

    LOTS of people will simply die when the System comes crashing down. Not with a bang, but a whimper...

    I'm thinking it's precisely what Yuri Bezmenov described - demoralization. These youngsters have been completely demoralized - of course that's a process that's affected all of us at least to some degree, however these youngsters got the full immersion from birth.

    I think Jordan Peterson talks about this. Young men have no purpose today. And they've been totally demoralized. You really can't blame them. Look at the education system and media they've been subjected to their whole lives. Even religious upbringing has largely been taken away from them. Life is just meaningless and even the pursuit of pleasure is meaningless.

    Bolshevism was "defeated," don't you know?

    Trouble is, the Bolshevists who have brought about this situation are not Russians. McCarthy was right.

    Peterson has been totally exposed on 4chan. They now call him Peterstein because of videos like the above.

    On thread topic...Shami is our resident expert on the Young.

    I live with a similar kid (not mine) except that he's 15. I'm pretty sure that's not going to change in a year. Spends all his time while not in school online gaming or watching TV. Cute girls his age from the neighborhood have come over and he basically ignores them.

    Oh yeah, he sleeps in his mom's room, for whatever reason.
