The regression of the Human race.
« on: March 16, 2019, 11:48:36 AM »
I have thought for some time now that the human race had reached it's peak and was now returning back to savagery.
Mental health is fast overtaking heart disease and cancer as the number 1 illness. Whether this is due to drink and drugs or the demands and pressures of day to day living i don't know.
But you can't pick up a paper today without reading something you would never have heard of four decades ago.
Senseless slaughter of innocent people over imaginary Gods, escalating knife crime in city centres and clubs, one of our own fans stabbed to death going to school on a bus in a motiveless attack.
I read the other day about a delivery man who had cut a hole in the front of his trousers to expose himself to housewives.
The other week i read about a Doctor, no less, who threatened to rape another mans wife because he had beaten him to a parking space.
On Thursday night to kids were wiped out and their mother put in hospital by two idiots racing each other in cars on a 40 mph road.
These aren't the actions of sane people.

The human race is becoming apathetic, lazy and ignorant.
Young girls covered in tattoos with beer bellies who swear like Sailors. Mothers taking kids to school or shopping in Pyjamas and dressing gowns.
People too lazy to indicate in a car when turning.

There have always been gangs and crime, and religious nutters, but nothing on the scale we are seeing now, and it's getting worse.

I think we are all going to hell in a hand cart.

Always seems that way, in reality the more things change the more they stay the same.

I'm not knocking what you say, because I do agree and I'm a religious person. But I also think that examples you mentioned have happenes before. They're not isolated to the 21st century. The killing of innocent people has happened time and time again. Look at the various accounts of Drs who have killed/raped patients, serial killers, terror attacks, but when something is mentioned in a history book it doesn't seem as real as when you see it first hand.

I understand your concerns, but atrocities and poor social behaviour have most probably existed from year dot. However, awareness of what goes on elsewhere, has increased due to improved communication, namely the internet. Truthfully, if I’m not directly affected by what’s in 'the news', I try not to concern myself about it. It keeps me slightly sane, and mildly happy.
Humanity is a parade of fools, and I’m at the front of it...twirling the baton.

The pace of life now is beyond that which human bodies and the mind are capable of sustaining on a constant basis hence all the increase in mental health issues along with misdiagnosis in the past. The body/mind is not designed to work a minimum of 40 hours per week and deal with the emotional stresses on top of that. We are animals albeit with a higher intelligence than the other animals we share this planet with. Everything is temporary in todays society sadly.

I am not religious myself but accept other peoples views. But it gets silly when people fight over it. I think religion was meant to learn people to live a good life, and it also helped countries to control their masses. The Church once held as much power as the crown, now neither have a lot of say in how things are run.

I think that could be a problem. As less people believe in God or an afterlife, they feel as though they have ben given a blank cheque to do what they like. Law and order and control are breaking down. overnments give themselves rises and cut front line services.

I am 64 this year, and i have seen the changes. Yes there was always crime and atrocities, but not on the scale we are seeing today.
I used to walk to school a mile and back four times a day from the age of 8. There were bullies and i got into scrapes on the way home, but it was part and parcel of growing up.
If you told a teacher you were being bullied they would say don't tell tales. It was down to you to deal with it.

Today kids are taken to school in cars too big for their mothers to handle and dropped off outside the gates. Their feelings are hurt if someone says something nasty to them.
When they become adult, they aren't used to being bullied or losing, and they feel the pressures more. Suicide with young males is on the increase. Three blokes from my work have hung themselves in the last 10 years.
When i was young i never knew or heard of anyone who took their own life. I never knew anyone who suffered from depression either.
Your young days should be the happiest and most carefree of your lives, but the pressure of the modern day must have now world is causing mental health to rocket.

The scenes over Brexit are a good example of people not used to losing.

I think the western world has been in regression since the early 70s a lot of it boils down to respect or lack of and the attitude the world owes you a living.
I started a thread the world gets crazier everyday and agree the human race is going to hell in a handcart.

She carried on swearing at me sobi told her that I would ring the police straight away and tell them the story,I did ring the cops,nice fella listened but couldn't do anything about it,it was up to the guy who lost it to report it to the bank and same for his license, all this agro for trying to help someone, upset me for a while,ill never do it again,shame though at it.

The biggest evil of modern society is selfishness in some form or other, everything wrong in society stems from that when you think about it.

I have zero tolerance for selfish people in my life, I remove them, they are always misery bringers to those around them.

Don't give up, I once sent a wallet left in my workplace to an address I found in it, got a lovely card a couple of weeks later.  Then I lost my wallet on a train (pi$$ed) and had it sent to me, I likewise sent a thankyou.

Britain is going to hell in a handbasket.

I'm not religious but I do think the demise of the church has something to do with society's breakdown. I even think the demise of pub life had made us lose some of our fellow bond.

Police, teachers and parents cannot or will not implement a culture of respect into our young. Done properly this does not have to be harsh. We move around more for jobs; kids have a diminished sense of family with the increasing fragmentation of family. How many kids now are close to their grandparents - far less than used to be I believe.

We are increasingly insular, spending more and more time on (here) and I even believe some of our youth cannot readily differentiate between reality and fantasy. Understanding consequences for actions is, it seems, beyond them.

I tend to agree with Kya, this began in the late 70s and has gradully gathered momentum in the technology age.

I think a lot of it is to do with society 'going soft'
Can't smack the kids for being naughty, can't have sports days because somebody loses and it might upset them, can't do this can't do that because you might offend somebody who doesn't agree with you.
Criminals given legal aid paid for by us, terrorists taking the country to court because we won't let them back in after they have been abroad murdering innocents.
And today I read that Oxford University Students Union has banned clapping , instead to be replaced by 'Jazz Hands''
 ;D ;D ffs what's the world coming to?
These people are our next generation of academics. Our lawyers, police commissioners, politicians et al.
One can only imagine what nonsense these people will conjure up next or more dangerously in 10 to 20 years time, when they will be in positions to inflict their stupid ways on thew rest of us.

Heard about this the other day. They've been using jazz hands at Manchester University since last year apparently. Wait until they realise where the term jazz hands comes from, Al Jolson would be proud. They'll probably then ban the term on the grounds of racism or call them 'jazz hands of no specific race or identifiable gender'. Space cadets.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

I have been saying for years (usually on about the third pint) that the big mistake was calling them human rights in the first place, it just gives tiny interest groups the "right" to claim all sorts of nonsense.  The term should have been "human responsibilities"; we should all have a duty of care not to injure others, discriminate deliberately and so on, what lawyers call "mens rea", (I think, any actual lawyers feel free to correct this), meaning evil mind/intent.  If there's no evil intent there's no breach of your human responsibilities to others - the "Human Rights" industry came about as a response to the Nazis, and it wasn't supposed to be about idiocies like Jazz Hands, it was about gas chambers, mass deportations, labour camps and suchlike.

You can say its just a change of wording, but it would actually change the way people think about it.

I am afraid society today is a product of the extreme social and economic liberalism that has been foisted upon us since the 60s and I can see no way the tide will turn.

Without being starry-eyed about years gone by, I know of no-one of my generation (60 - 80 year olds) who does not think that we have had the best years of this country.    Certainly for the first 30 years of so of my life, society was far more civil than it is today and with many employed in reasonably well paid manufacturing jobs, differences in income were by no means as great as they are today. 

Back then we were undoubtedly a far more cohesive society with generally common standards and values by which most of us lived.   Sadly I think David Cameron was right when he talked of our broken society.   Unfortunately I do not recall him actually doing anything to repair it.

You make some very good points Raymond and as a still young at heart 61 year old I have to agree with you.

This why we old farts should help our children and grandchildren. We have some resonable finances, and when we snuff it, our homes can also generate a few quid to pass on.

Unless those homes and reasonable finances have been absorbed by healthcare costs in older age.
