Nothing annoys me more than people who say we should stop bitching because its always been like this, and then they’ll quote some Roman General from 44BC who said the youth were bad mannered lazy and wasteful etc etc, as if this proves their point.
Usually its Progressives who say this, who are just waking up to the fact that maybe they have made a God awful mess of everything and are trying to avoid judgment. Usually all you need is a few graphs to destroy their argument. There are plenty out there demonstrating huge increases in crime, marriage breakdown, violence etc and they all start with a level line up until about the early or late 1960’s and start steeply accelerating after then.
What happened in the 1960s or thereabouts? The political ideas of Progressives, that had been bubbling under the surface for a decade or so, got real political traction. They’re today at the forefront of our society and have been for so long and their proponent have been so successful at shutting out alternate ideas, there is a generation that doesn’t know any other ideas ever existed.
Here’s another graph that shows how things have changed.
Today, seventy percent of American males between the ages of 20 and 34 are not married, and many live in a state of “perpetual adolescence” with ominous consequences for the nation’s future.
“Far too many young men have failed to make a normal progression into adult roles of responsibility and self-sufficiency, roles generally associated with marriage and fatherhood,” Janice Shaw Crouse, the former executive director of the Beverly LaHaye Institute, wrote in a recent Washington Times oped.
According to 2014 data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 7.9 million opposite sex couples in the U.S. live together but are not married. A 2014 study by Johns Hopkins University also found that 57 percent of children born to women aged 26 to 31 are out of wedlock.
Janice Shaw Crouse says there is still too much anti-male stuff out there. Feminism has largely achieved its goal of equality in the workplace, so the movement has “lost relevance” for young women who are now earning more college and professional degrees than men, she pointed out. However, feminism’s effects on the culture, including the historically low marriage rate, will linger for some time to come, she noted.
“Feminism was supposed to bring women happiness,” Crouse said. “But the research shows that women today are much more unhappy then they have been in the past. They’ve ended up with far more opportunities, but their personal happiness is way down.”
Not to mention the falling birth rate. Feminism is just one more element in what many see as a world wide plan to effect white genocide. Demographics experts predict a white minority in the US by 2040.
