I think a large part of today’s society and especially the younger generations is that they have never been in a position where they have to loose. Video games allow countless re spawns and saved games. Sports now give medals to the top three teams and in extreme cases medals to the rest simply for trying, at the least certificates for participating. Schools have the no children left behind program, extra credit, a grading curve, and teachers who will graduate them simply to save them the embarrassment of failure or because they don’t want to deal with them any longer. So what we end up with is a generation of children who don’t know how to loose. When things get tough or when things go wrong they don’t know what to do. They lash out, they get depressed, they get frustrated, they quit, they close themselves off to the world, they pass the blame to others, and so on and so on and before we know it we have a generation screaming out “This isn’t fair” “THIS IS OUR RIGHT” and all of this other bull shit and you know what, its our fault. We raised a bunch of winners. The problem is people who win but don’t loose, stop trying to win and eventually start expecting it. They become entitled to the idea that victory is there right because they earned it twenty victories ago. Funny the parallels this draws in today’s society isn’t it.
