When We Look Back

by Bill Holter, Miles Franklin:

When we look back in history at the current times, people will surely be scratching their heads in disbelief. I am not only talking about the financial system here, I am talking about nearly everything. “Socially” where are we now compared to even 20 or 40 years ago? How about compared to 80 years ago when the world was in Depression? Do you see the spirit of “self-reliance” anymore? How about neighbors helping out other down and out neighbors? I would even ask if people today even know the names of people 2 or 3 doors down.

Socially, kids today for the most part have their heads stuck inside some electronic device. Do they come home from school and play baseball, basketball or any other game? Generally speaking no, they TEXT each other and post meaningless crap on Facebook. How many kids work summers? How many kids…work…period? Compare this to 50 years ago or 100 years ago, nearly ALL kids did work of some kind whether it was for pay or helping out on the farm.

    People today, particularly in the Western countries, have forgotten the connection between personal effort and success. They are not taught this at an early age anymore, as many of us older folks were. Times have changed, for sure, and not always for the better. For better or worse, civilizations proceed onward in fits and starts, sometimes succeeding, sometimes not. Yes, in many cases, the old ways were better than today. But not in every way. The challenge we now face is to continue that which was best in the past while merging it with that which is best today. If we can do that, we will be in very good shape. If not, well, civilizations rise AND fall and this one will be replaced by one that is younger, stronger, more disciplined, more vigorous, and capable of keeping to the values that are known to work best. In the long run, it’s all good… although there will likely be MANY bumps and bruises along the way.
