    Casey commented on the post, Inner Voice

    Gabe,
    Your post is very interesting and I am so happy that you have found your inner voice. I like how you describe your breakthrough with finding your inner voice, most people havent found that and by you doing so, it probably has lifted a huge burden off your chest of finding who you are. Thank you so much for sharing your story here.

  • Averi,
    This topic is one that I personally have experienced because my aunt had a disability and was paid sub-minimum wage. The cool thing about her situation is that she did not care about the amount of money she made, she just loved helping people and contributing to a work environment. Because of this, her employer was able to pay her less so…Read More

    • This is so great and I hope many more see this. Some parents just love blaming issues with their kids on public education when in reality, much of the blame may lie on their shoulders. The main issue is that the parents don’t even realize what their children are turning into. Giving love and care needs a balance because too much causes this sense of entitlement you speak of.

    • Hey Casey,
      I have also noticed the entitlement kids have today. Kids today do not need to work for rewards now. Kids are now receiving rewards without doing anything. As they grow up, they have a feel like things should be easier for them and be handed to them. I found this article that actually gives you signs if your child may have entitlement issues. I hope to read more about this topic in the future!

    • The issue of mass infantilization I find, is more systemic and that the explanation of “mediocre parenting” does not do enough justice. We can see this all around us in our society. The government compels youth to attend schools where noncompliance and individuality in all its forms is constrained and stifled. Heck, the schools even legally take on the privileges your parents do in order to deprive you of basic constitutional rights.
      In law, the government acts as a nanny. You can’t drive without permission from the government, you can’t drink or smoke any substance without being told its okay, you can’t do business without the government making you do it in ridiculous and bureaucratic ways.
      It’s all over contemporary media that an entire generation of university students have Peter Pan’d themselves into absurdity. Certainly, some older generation could be blamed, and I certainly agree that some parents are complicit.

  • Animal testing is necessary because if we tested vaccines on people that were harmful, we would be killing humans and not animals. I understand that some testing on animals is unnecessary like testing shampoos and other beauty products, but vaccine testing is completely necessary because we are taking lives into consideration. Below I have…Read More
