Extended Adolescence

Saturday, April 28, 2012
Posted in category Boom-Bubble Phenomenon

There is a funny article in MedPage Today: “Kids Today Are Really Different.” The thesis of the article is essentially a psychobabble way of saying that a lot of folks just don’t grow up anymore. As usual, the solution offered is more government programs (on a global level) and more quasi-governmental academic experts to fix human beings who are infantilized by Big Government and the institutionalization of perpetual adolescence.

    I would have read the article, except, like, I had too many Xbox games left to play and I think the article was waaaaayy too, like, boring. Then I had to load up some more games on my iPod to bring to work with me in the morning, if I decide I want to go to work.

    So, like, what was this article about again?

    As long as parents through their example teach their kids they must be social slaves, then don’t expect kids to grow up anytime soon. Our entire system is based on a crap educational foundation, so why can we expect any good to come from it? Further once you get on the corporate choo choo, you are only going on a one way track, one that you may not like but are now a prisoner of. Lately there has been much press about whether or not college is worthwhile. I submit it is not, if it means you are just a cog in a wheel that has been taught from kindergarten on to conform. They say that nonconformists suffer, but the opposite is true. The vast majority of people being conformists, or the products of ersatz educational settings, prove through their unhappiness that conforming serves no one all that well. We can thank feminism for being in charge of our ersatz educational system and turning out kids who refuse to grow up. Why expect to see any difference when the ones in charge have never seen the light nor understood where they have led these kids…for far to long, it has been the blind leading the blind…and now we see the results all around us..no creativity, just conformity. So yes, extended adolescence has existed since the sixties, but gov’t sure as hell isn’t the answer, when in fact they aided and abetted this sick scene.

    Good call, Jeannie. The elephant in the living room regarding publik educasion is the parents who don’t care about their children’s education dropping off the kids at the public school babysitter for eight hours a day.

    It’s often these parents who bought their children video games, but have no books or other reading material in the house, and whose children check into school not knowing their ABCs or how to count to ten.

    The answer, then, becomes mandatory kindergarten for their children – a mandate with which these parents are all too happy to comply with.

    Parents who care about their children often make sure their children obtain a proper education, and that begins at home. IMO, there’s a dearth of those parents these days.

    Cute one Terry..I do get your drift and it is so true that most parents don’t give a fiddely f about their kids faux education. Worse, is that most colleges today decry the fact that freshmen enter college not knowing how to read, write or think at the most basic level. They have to spend the first few months of that freshman year attempting to get them up to at least tenth grade!!!!

    What passes as education, this miserable miasma of Marxist maximum miserable BS has done more to ruin the country than anything else you could point to. All the crap about O wanting more money for education is nonsense. What we need to do for starters is to get rid of education altogether. The decades long “group think” is not serving us well. You find few people who are actually capable of thinking anymore. This I find incredibly frightening for that makes all the mental midgets fodder for the faith of Islam..where one is forced to forfeit their mind to the dictates of one dickhead dictator who determines your every move 24/7 and you just obey as you hand your mind over. Then again, isn’t this what the liberal BS admin is doing now everytime they say, “Just trust us, we know what we are doing? Eh, don’t think so morons. This admin more than any previous admin shows just how the institutionalization of adolescence is part and parcel of their ploy. They actually feel that they should play the part of Robin Hood, hence, making them much like 6 years old, as opposed to the prepubscent punks they are in reality from Pelosi to Reid to Biden, O and czars.

    Ever watch that Craig Ferguson twit? Here you have a 50 year old psycho-brat pushing teeny pop-culture and repetitive “Ow my Balls!” type stupidities on 50+ year old diabetes-bag mental retards. What else would these retards vote for besides sociopath political terrorists?
