OWS is really a mental health crisis.

Think about it. All these poor bastards were coddled to believe they were infallible. It almost seems to me that they were never allowed to take responsibility for their mistakes (until now, when they have to get a jerb). And they've essentially been lied to their whole lives until the truth hit them in the face. Lied to by their parents, their teachers in grade school and high school, themselves, their friends, anyone who ever told little Johnny that he was a winner all because he finished dead last in a race. Then, it's bad form for you to get pissed off at yourself for coming in last. We don't like anger at all.

So, a combination of PC weenies, parents telling their children that they're special so much they even brainwash themselves into thinking it, and these poor little fucks that had to go through that... abuse, now have all manner of psychoses.

I submit we have a mental illness epidemic of biblical proportions on our hands. It's not that they're crazy. It's this political correctness movement that is significantly altering our reality to the point where people become non-functioning, on both sides of the argument. We're a country full of sick puppies, and we've got nukes. Lots of 'em.

For years people were brainwashed that capitalism was good and socialism is evil. Now we're finding out that both have their downsides when taken to extremes.

And some people can't digest that we need a balance.

The capitalism vs socialism thing aside, (we already have a balance, and shifting more one way or the other isn't going to help matters) Jack is right in that PC society has created the entitlement generation. I'll admit that things were starting to go that direction when I was growing up in the 80's, but really took off in the 90's when I was already in high school and learning that getting a medal/trophy for "participation" was of the highest order. I'm not saying that kids that can't keep up should be ridiculed and belittled...but giving out medals and a pool party to a little league team that comes in dead last sends the wrong message, and does nothing to prepare them for the real world to come. Each generation gets a little more educated than the one before, (or saturated with information) but seems to be less prepared for a world that doesn't give a shit how wonderful your mother thinks you are, or how many participation trophies you have in your childhood bedroom..

Speaking of teachers, this speaks volumes to how stupid our generation is (including the parents).

I've seen bits of that movie watching the Zeitgeist documentaries. I dowloaded the whole movie. Just haven't gotten around to watching it yet.

This is actually kind of true, although I think parents still get mad at their kids for bad grades (I know my parents did, and they're fucking lawyers who made our schools put up with a lot of at times).

Also, what is this, the 80s? Political correctness is an uninspiring and unconvincing boogeyman, and I've literally only heard it from people older than me. It's just an fancier version of the age-old "young people these days are lazy/have no respect/have too much sex/etc etc"

Because I supported it. Even though it was doomed to fail, it did prompt debate about inequality and it somewhat raised class consciousness. I bet the Romney campaign is a lot more hesitant about releasing his tax returns than it would have been if it weren't for OWS. It'd be interesting to see how the election would be different if OWS were still going on
