hardinparamedic: Aww. Poor, poor rich white kids. They're so oppressed and violated by society at large. When will someone stand up for their civil rights and privileges! Reverse racism is so, so common now! How shameful it is that our country has lost so much of it's moral guidance that poor, rich white kids might have to work for a living!/yes. People actually think this.

MaliFinn: people: Explain why this article is about "rich white kids?"Because unlike some cultures where people have a strong identity, well-to-do suburban white kids have virtually no guiding philosophy aside from what capitalism rewards you with. There's morality in a ' do no harm' sense, but otherwise they're without any internal motivation.
GilRuiz1: MaliFinn: people: Explain why this article is about "rich white kids?"Because unlike some cultures where people have a strong identity, well-to-do suburban white kids have virtually no guiding philosophy aside from what capitalism rewards you with. There's morality in a ' do no harm' sense, but otherwise they're without any internal motivation.I've been wondering for some time how this will affect the US when it eventually becomes the norm. Right now we're coasting on leftover philosophies and morals from the past, but they are fading away fast. What will the country look like when it becomes normal to have "virtually no guiding philosophy," and the majority of people are "without any internal motivation"?Any sociologists or anthropologists in the house want to help tackle that question?
WhoopAssWayne: Not going to be popular here on fark, but I believe church attendance, a part-time job, maybe sports, and judicial use of corporal punishment would go a long way to getting these kids out of their funk. I've seen what coddling, no expectations, no punishment for failure, and no guidance do first hand to my now-grown god-children. These kids slept in their mom's bed until well after they were teenagers and could read and write before being weened. It's basically a form of a child abuse and they just don't understand why some of their peers are succeeding while they aren't. They are completely unprepared for life and it's a terrible shame.
