What has happened to family values?
I dont see much of it! I just see people out for themselves these days. People seem to have no morals and be more wayward and self-righteous than anything else. I'm 26.. at one point in my life, i sat round a dinner table to eat with family.. had good relationship with almost everyone in my family.. no real problems.. i learnt discipline, i dont and didn't agree with how i was always handled.. but genereally, i learnt some good foundations and it has built a sense of strong character within me. (yes, i made a few mistakes along the way and even went a bit wild).. but i got through my teens without ever gettin a girl pregnant or harming anyone for the sake of it etc... and never tried to be "gangster" or "one of the boys".. all young folk these days wanna descend to being down.. smoking drugs under age drunking... Ok, so the few public schooled children tend not to... a few people wont.. however, i see people i went to school with up to no good. talking trash bout others.. always having a new partner, living off the state.. benefits etc.. its OK to make a mistake once, but to make the same mistake etc.. are people really stupid, or they so self serving they dont care about no one else? I see mum's only caring for themselves and not there children... so kids end up not liking there parents and be on the streets, starting crews and having crew mates for family etc... But why do people prefer all this bull **** in their lives.. rather than aim to achieve something good and crate a legacy that will represent them in a positive way?.. so people can actually feel proud.. when i see people i grew up with, I usually reluctantly say hello and cringe at the same time.. i try and look at my phone or put mirrored sunglasses in and pretend not to notice them! lol It seems to be these are also the people that hate everyone and anyone... pointing fingers at other and blaming others for their downfalls... when its all down to them... How can low life people put others down and then try to take some sort of moral high ground over people who try and do things the right way and actually try to have a honest living... then these s*******s send there scabby kids to school with other kids and taint the kids where the parents tr hard to raise them into honest adults.... I really do think many people are like cave men or animals! lol! Do you agree? anything you would add? .. but once upon a time.. british folks did have quite good family values.. but it seems to have gone... thats why I prefer foreigners... they dont have much, they may be poor.. but they are still good people that work and everything they have, they have gone to work to obtain it...

Family values have been destroyed by rampant capitalism which bombards people constantly with the idea that things and money are the answer to everything, and the extream left which sees the family as the cement which holds the old capitalist order together and so must be destroyed. The left has tried to undermine the... More
