Issues In The Modern World

Most of my writings are unfinished as I work on them over time. My mind is rather scattered most of the time due to ADHD in a rare form. Instead of effecting my body like it does most others it strictly effects my thought process.

I am deeply troubled by the modern world. President Bush has on numerous occasions tried preaching to the country about the fact teenagers should not engage in sexual activities. The truth is that most people in general today are not very mature, some teenagers are actually very mature though. I do not think it is fair for him to address all people when he really needs to actually address the fact that society in general has begun to revert to childish actions.

Sexual education is not as strong as it needs to be. The greatest sexual techniques created were created by Asian cultures centuries ago and yet they do not get openly taught about. It is 100% proof that my analysis is correct though that we are becoming less advanced. Instead of preaching about STD’s they need to teach about passion and romance. Sex is perfectly natural and it is going to become a basic function for everyone at some point in time. By teaching primarily about STD’s and pregnancy it then results in people only worrying about that instead of worrying about their actual level of maturity.

I am still young and am not stupid, some people have commented about the fact that my maturity and wisdom is beyond my years. This is only true because I am obviously considerably old fashioned compared to most people in modern society. People often insult old-fashioned people, but should they actually be insulting them? STD’s and other illnesses do not normally nail most old-fashioned people because they think in more cautious and deeper ways.

Most of my role models and people I look up to in general are all long deceased. I have not seen anyone in the recent 30 years of history who I can actually say is worthy of being called a good role model. David Robinson is someone I do look up to; he was a professional basketball player who actually left in the middle of an important game to go be with his wife because she was in labor. This is very rare to see and I envy him for it, most people only idolize the best athletes though and never actually envy people anymore based off their personal beliefs or wisdom. Most of the good athletes today are actually stuck up jerks that only care about money and not the sport they play. They are far from what I would consider an actual role model for anyone let alone the youth of the world.

In some ways I can not blame people for their immaturities. The president is far from a role model and so are the athletes that companies advertise. Who should the youth look up to for leadership?

These are just yet more serious modern day issues.

I agree ma'am, I just do not think very many people see things in such a light though.

We are all teachers, whether it's "right" or "wrong", "good" or "bad". None of us are perfect. There is something to learn no matter which polar opposite it is.....good or bad, right or wrong. Every person, every animal, everything......the wind, the rain, whatever.....there are lessons everywhere. We are all teachers to the young......not only parents and teachers, but the store clerk, the driver on the highway, the murderer on the news, the song on the radio, the friendly smile from a passerby, the family pet, the stormy day or violent wind. We should all open our eyes and mindful of our actions, words, and behaviors. We are all role models.

No ma'am, it is exactly how I see it to. It is a lack of caring, let's face it, today's society is filled with a lot of greed. It's all about bigger and better! (I know that not everyone is actually greedy and I am not saying everyone is, but most people are).

Some people never seam to mature and it seams like it's taking them longer now than it did only 10 or 15 years ago. 30 year old people today are on the same maturity level as 18 year olds were 20 years ago. Or is that just me getting old and thinking everyone else is young and immature?
