Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism

Our society is work-mad

25 09 11 - 16:44

We are all equal, so the only way to distinguish yourself is work, which means we all slave away to keep our heads above the sea of people.

And what's the consequence?

We ignore our children, and overcompensate with Nannyisms:

"Into the 1950s, children were free to play a good part of their childhood. If you stayed in your house around your mom, she'd say 'go out and play.' The natural place for a kid was outside," said Peter Gray, a research professor of psychology at Boston College.

"Today, it's quite the opposite. Parents are not allowing kids the freedom to play. And even if they do, there are no other kids out there to play with, or the mother may have such restrictions on the child, such as 'you can't go out of the yard' that the kids don't want to stay out there," added Gray.

When kids are allowed to play, they make up games, negotiate rules and make sure others are playing fair. All of that helps to teach children how to make decisions, to solve problems and gain self-control. Children who have too many emotional outbursts or who insist on getting their way too often quickly learn they need to change their behavior if they want to continue to be welcomed into the group, Gray said. - USnews

Quick, get them in school and socialize them to always give in and compromise. Make them memorize stuff. Force them to work a lot and then shuffle them off to jobs.

That's the path to liberation, comrade citizen.

I work 9-5, M-F, changing widgets at the widget factory. The job was created by the government, because jobs are good, and the widgets are used help create reallybigwidgets that are used to widgetify the landscape. I lived a good life. Working Man - 25-09-’11 18:30

Is anyone else missing the obvious here, the world is very different from the 50s. It is more likely that your kid could get abducted or worse if you just let them out to play and do whatever they want in the city. Either that or they end up as street thugs. I know many teenagers who grew up in middle class homes who are resorting to crime just for something to do. name fields are for jerks - 26-09-’11 18:42
