5. What is Wrong with Society Today?

Quite frequently the question is raised as to what has gone wrong with our society today, what has caused the problems, and what can be done to correct them? When almost daily we hear of school shootings, drug busts, rapes, robberies, and people being threatened, it is no wonder that people are questioning the ills of society.

Unfortunately, we have been treating the symptoms and the effects rather than the causes. We have been putting a bandaid on the problems, with more prisons, more police on the streets, metal detectors in our schools, and a host of other ideas, that do not effectively cure the problems of our society.

The question was whats wrong with it, not whether it exists or not. Whats wrong with it is that racism doesn't give everyone their own chance. What should be a world wide philosophy is that everyone should be provided with equal opportunity; racism prevents that. Its not hypocritical to say somethings wrong with it, its hypocritical to be racist. Anything any racist says about another race could easily be stated to about their race.

Society is evolving, or more so... mutating with each generation. When the children grow up and become parents they are more lenient than their parents was thus allowing children to experience life at a much younger age than themself and at a much faster pace. Technology is helping to experience life at even more rapid rate.

Many things that was taboo just two generations ago are completely acceptable now. Governments and laws are going to be more heavily relied on to keep our communities safe. Because in the world we live in today, common sense is on the brink of extinction. It gets worse with each new generation.
