How did we get here??
I call it one more thing syndrome. But that one more thing is never enough.
We inch along giving in to one misdeed after another, trying to be tolerant.
We excuse the disadvantaged because we feel guilty, or are gilted by politicians.
We hope that everyone is sincere and not just trying to get something for nothing, but morality goes to the soul.
Many want to excuse bad behavior because of past prejudices.
Many would rather complain and get something for nothing, rather then just work hard.
We were taught by our mothers and fathers to be basically good people.
Many don't have fathers and have mothers who were never married, because somewhere in the past someone else was prejudice or racist. Again some how our fault.
It is assumed to be our fault.
I also call it somebody else syndrome.
Somebody else is responsible. Somebody else will fix it.
Somebody else is to blame, so we have to pay the price with our acceptance of bad behavior. Morality is a slippery slope. We have reached the tipping point.
The want something for nothing crowd now outnumbers the lets get it done crowd.
And the Nancy Pelocis of the world are to blame.
