The Barbarians Are Coming: The Are Our Children!

The Barbarians Are Coming: The Are Our Children!

I urge you to watch the video below. You may have already seen it in the news, but you should watch it again. The images must sink-in and haunt us all.

The lady who is bullied by these ghastly kids reminds me of my own wonderful grandmother, long passed-away. I have fantasized grabbing them by the scruff of their necks….a certain trip to jail and financial ruin.

What is the cause of this horrific scene?

It is so many things, it is hard to count them. But you can be sure that it is US! It is our own actions that they have grown-up watching and they are now imitating those actions. Whether we behave to our spouses, or others, in this fashion; portrayals  of such despicable behavior in the media that they see; whether we neglect their moral and ethical education at home, through our churches and in our public schools; whether we are permissive and too uncaring or cowardly to discipline them, it all goes to our own creation of barbaric and unprincipled children.  

One other factor that no one seems to be mentioning is the break-down of the nuclear family. Our divorce rate has been around 50% for decades. Research shows that boys raised without fathers are prone to becoming either feminized or hyper-aggressive. The aggression is often focused upon the mother and other females. I see this in divorced families, or with single mothers on a near daily basis in my psychological practice of  33 years. 

We can worry about the terrorists, the Russians, the Chinese, the General Election, The economy, cyber attacks, the energy crisis, the Fast and Furious mess, and countless other matters….

But, for me,  the following video is more indicative of our cultural demise than all of these other fearsome “boogeymen in America’s basement”–put together.

See the real face of our undoing in this video.
