HIGH SCHOOL -- 1957 vs. 2013 - Sad, but true

Scenario 1:

1957 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.

Scenario 2:
Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.
1957 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.
2013 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it. They are also required to attend six weeks of anger management therapy.

Scenario 3:
Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.
1957 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good paddling by the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.
2013 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He is then tested for ADD. The family gets extra money (SSI) from the government because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4:

ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot read & write English.

Scenario 7:
Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.

The blame can be placed on the kid who graduated from high school in 1957, his generation put all those ridiculous rules/laws in place for the kid in 2013.

So what are you guys saying? Go back to 1957 and stay there while the rest of the world evolves, grows, innovates and changes? Lets talk to indigenous populations around the world and see how well that works.

It was that way in the 80s also I used to hunt before and after school. There were many times I had a shot gun and rifle in my truck at school. Never thought twice about it

You missed the point. In every scenario the 1957 example was superior to the 2013 example from the perspective of logic, common sense, and liberty.

The 2013 examples are the result of Progressive Social Engineering. The goal is to break down family and social values and replace them with government solutions. In many cases the solutions are to problems that do not exist.

Progressive utopia is not defined by the individual or family unit, but rather the collective (government). Individualism, liberty, and freedom have no place. The government decides/monitors/enforces every aspect of life.

Our society is only a couple of hundred years old and already in full decline. It is really sad that the greatest society in the history of the world will become a victim to its most important feature - freedom.

I see what you're saying, but I don't understand what government has to do with this. I mean they collect taxes and run the country.

What I read from the OP is that times have changed. Those people who remember those days (not me) are not happy about that.

I graduate in 2014 and all of this is true haha had a friend get expelled for having an air soft gun in his back pack. He had forgotten to take it out since he took that backpack to a friends house day before. A kid saw it on the bus home and told on him. I can even tell how dumb my generation is. Swag wont pay the bills anytime soon thats for sure. I see kids my age these days and just imagine that in 10 years ill be seeing them on the side of the road. Its kind of sad, they party everything away.

You don't think the 50s and 60s were good for blacks? At least they could find work back then.

You don't know much about blacks.
Blacks were more active in the work force than whites from 1900-1954. Until 1960 black labor force participation in every age group was equal to whites.
During the same time period black teen unemployment was the same level as white teen unemployment.
As early as 1900 black unemployment was 15 percent shorter than whites, today its 30 percent longer.

What changed or ruined it?

1. The black home front. No focus on parent hood. No focus on education.
2. Democrats and Progressives. ie......
The War On Poverty
The Great Society
Creeping Socialism
Paying people more money not to work than they can make working.
All Leading To The Establishment Of A Permanent "Moocher" Society
More and More Wealth Redistribution To Keep Moochers On The Plantation

Kids today haven't changed the system or initiated any changes at all. The problem started when parents started looking for scapegoats. Their kid gets into trouble and refuse to accept that either their child was bad or they had made parenting mistakes. Somehow the system was to blame, or the violent video games you bought them, or your kids sit in front of the TV all day(the TV you bought and don't monitor) or your kid sees that spilling hot coffee was the ticket to the family's new house. When a kid falls behind in school everyone blames the school. Could it be little johnny needs to work harder and have his parents work with him after school? This slope we are sliding down was crested by the Babyboomers and just snowballs each generation. There is more finger pointing and less personal accountability everyday. With lawsuits you forced the Government into our everyday lives. These kids are lucky they don't need a license from the FDA to open a lemonaid stand these days. Now that everyone is so lawsuit scared and somebody else is always at fault, we have the mess we are in. I don't know how we back out of this situation either.

Segregation in the 50's and 60's was the norm in America. Access to quality education at all levels was extremely limited and caused grave deadly confrontations... Housing options were also limited by segregation

My point is the "Good old days" weren't good for all...

Citation needed. I am guessing that you were not alive in the 50's.
