    Look at comics from fifty years ago. The dad has his face buried in the paper. People have ignored other people forever – now we just have new vehicles for it.

    It’s an epidemic.
    I saw its beginning when I went to Walmart’s to do my shopping, and saw many people walking around holding the first mobile phones to their ears. It is an addiction IMO.
    (comics 50 years ago showed Dad after supper after a long day on the job, catching up on news by reading the newspaper)
    Better family situation….Mom doing her job in the home, dressing and feeding her husband and kids…the bills get paid because they didn’t try to buy every new thing in the ads…..spending time at the table and in the home. Few of those homes created the high divorce rate, or produced kids that drank or doped and joined the criminal class of society. Church on Sunday helped create that Home, an Ark of Safety in a Friendly Neighborhood.

    @neo (still wet behind your ears?)
    No. Back in the 1950s when men and women and society’s leaders knew their proper place in God’s Plan for a better life on earth! And taught their children by example.
    What do you like about the “liberated society”?
    The divorce rate? The 55 million murders of the pre-born American taxpayers? The Drug Wars? The runaway teens from bad homes who end up being human slaves? The evident increase in violence? An actual 15% unemployment, partly due to women taking jobs men used to have? The worthlessness today of an expensive college “education”?
    The numbers of suicides of all ages?
    The Family I described had Faith and Hope for the future, and security in the present. Trust in God is good for anyone.

    Barefoot and pregnant was the “bible version” of women’s roles, and some with retarded social development due to excess exposure to “religions” , be it extremist Christianity, Judaism, or Islam, (and some “non-bible” religions as well) still profess said limits on women.

    As to the TV, btw, researchers have proven that exposure to the tube by toddlers under two years old, causes actual brain damage, irreversible. That explains some of the addictions of the “youth” of today, as well as some older folks.

    The fifties also had segregation, lynchings, Jim Crow laws, and many other forms of discrimination. So it wasn’t so great for everyone.
    Birth control of any kind was illegal in many places.
    No Medicare — not that YOU would ever stoop to taking government handouts.
    There was the Cold War with backyard bomb shelters and duck and cover drills.
    Joe McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee could ruin anyone’s life for any reason, including personal dislike.

    That’s all part of the package you want to bring back, right?

    Believe it or not

    Ohh well, crack and cocain are such minor aspects of a child’s upbringing. Clearly lower use will result in lower character.

    That rapid decrease of nearly 90% incarceration must truly be showing how society is going downhill. after all who else will older prisoners rape in the showers at night,d.aWc&psig=AFQjCNEL4N5-QhmQe54QU8bID_jIXU54uQ&ust=1376542781628194
    Or for the longer term view, still a decrease. never mind general prison inflation.

    The reality is that the 50’s 60’s and 70’s this seeming golden age produced crime rates and criminals greater than the present. While divorce was lower spousal abuse was accepted as being normal, never mind personally having known couples whom literally hated each other until they died

    As a bit of a spin on the Stephen Hawking quote

    " danger is not in the belief of a better age to come, but the misbelief in a darker age that has gone"

    I fail to see how you get 15% unemployment. never mind that employment is greater with women working.

    1. does not equal rate 55 abortions occurred over time

    What do you know, the rate is down AND the number.

    BY GOD what do you know, people are leaving home later. Can’t find data on runaways before 2001, sorry for that one.

    MY LORD fewer people are committing suicide, how on earth are we going to fertilize the soil

    The type of religiousness you espouse follows along the old line of the highway to hell is paved with good intentions

    “Barefoot and pregnant was the “bible version” of women’s roles, and some with retarded social development due to excess exposure to “religions”…..”
    More careful reading of the New Testament (and even examples of women who excelled in traditional “men’s” professions in the Old Testament)…shows that in Jesus’ day
    women were respected by Judaism and God inspired the Jerusalem Assembly leaders and writers of scriptures, to elevate the status of women, in the church as “equal before God”, and many well-to-do women supported believers during the persecution of followers of Christ.
    The Godly teachings raised women to be protected and men were commanded to “love” and take care of wives and children. The example was Jesus’ love for the “Bride” which is the N.T. Church, such great agape love that Jesus died for her.
    Just because some who spoke over the centuries for Christianity, who failed to be loyal to scriptures, taught errors, you should not pick and choose the reported abnormal ideas, just to buttress your hatred for God’s Bible.

    dt: you seem to read your bible as selectively, ignoring major points and facts with as much regularity as you do folks’ posts here. You always miss that I repeatedly say “radical”, or “extremists”, which you are actually among, when referring to the evil done in the name of the “Book of Hate”, which contains far more violence than kindness, even from Jesus. The Revelations is of course the ultimate statement of hatred for all who are not “Christian”, and the fact that John may have been on mushrooms or PCP when writing it, is fairly clear.
