“They can’t cope.”
There is a new generation that is used to being cuddled and told life is going to be great. Not used to being told they suck at something. And have known for everything to be very sensitive in our society. So what happens when this generation steps into a society that is completely opposite of what they are used to seeing and hearing? It’s going to be a culture shock to know there are not safe spaces nor is there an immediate gratification in the form of likes and followers. You have to work long and hard for things and it is a path where in the paradigm of living you see no results.
when did it start
I was born in the year 1987, so I am of age when the trophy handouts first started. We played and was destroyed in the season. But at the pizza banquet, we were all given a trophy for our part in the season. And in that moment I knew nothing of why we were given trophies. But now that I am an adult I will say that trophy meant nothing to me. But it was the beginning for what would be the issue with why everyone gets one. Because when we all get one it means nothing. The reason for a trophy is there is a winner and loser. If we all win, there is no need for competition.
Dressing styles at work have changed over time. As a matter of fact my last post was about the CEO style changing. But for the most part, a suit and tie is the norm. A whole new arena when you have spent so much time in a t-shirt and jeans. And people had to accept you for who you are in that space. But in this new space no one has to accept you. No one cares who you are because you have done nothing to prove yourself. So until that time comes, keep your mouth shut and put on that suit.
clean and in good standing
When you are looking at this young generations that are so used to casually using some type of drug, they are not familiar with the idea if random drug test. Because marijuana has become so popular, that still doesn’t make it alright use on the job. And companies fear giving drug screenings because you are going to see a major expulsion of jobs in America.

“Why do we judge others by the stuff we say ourselves?”
Don’t say the N word, don’t say the R word, don’t say the C word. Over the recent years, the use of language has been a topic of discussion. Who can say what and how they can say it has caused many debates. We give passes to certain people to use certain language and not others. We chastise one person for voicing their opinion, then turn around and say something just as inflammatory. Yet no one sees it that way because we all want to have our say. Everyone wants to say that one magical word that will turn everyone around. But it never quite pans out that way. Well why, why have we become such a duplicitous society lately?
One of the reasons we give passes to speak for certain people and not others is because we are not a together nation. If the nation came together against the sensitivity, you would eliminate a lot of the confusion right off the back. Because in society today, we have this really loud minority group that does not represent the slightest percentage of the masses. But since their voices are so loud, we give them a pass. Yet if the masses stood up against the sensitivity, and didn’t give people this pass, it would cease. But are there any other reasons why language has been a problem in America?
Another reason is that we don’t want people to see the real us. It’s easy to look at a public figure and judge. But could you do it; could you live your life in the open 24/7, not say one word to tick off anyone? The answer is no, it’s not possible. Why isn’t it possible? The reason being is that people just need someone or something to be made about in life. You could post on social media, “Good morning, boy do I feel good.” You’ll get positive feedback, yet you’ll still get a wave of disdain. But the people very rarely come out as their real selves. They usually hide behind a private account or an Avatar photo. Now is there more that has led to the sensitivity?
A major problem for our phoniness in America today is from the idea of policing ourselves. But not policing ourselves in a positive manner. I’m talking people who want to find any little thing you say or do on camera or any other audio/video recording device, then hurt your livelihood. We have become so satisfied with watching people spiral out of control that it becomes almost like a form of entertainment. We like to see the spiral so we can say we witnessed the greatest show on Earth. In the end, we will continue to play these games until we live in a system where you can’t say anything. By that time it will be too late to push back against.
