i understand his argument about how certain things are worse now, but i reject the idea that we're becoming worse as a society
violent crime is a lot lower than it was, and declined for decades (slight upticks mean i can't say that it's still decreasing)
teen pregnancy is decreasing
teen abortion is decreasing
there are a lot of indicators that make me believe that we're getting better
Consider these stats
7000 HS drop outs per day or 2 million plus a year, kids on the streets...
An average of 5500 black on black murders every single year..Over 22,000 on Obama's watch...yet he seldom's says anything about this issue.
We are at record number of births to unwed mothers
Public education isn't getting better according to data.
prisons are overflowing..of course maybe need to stop locking people up for drugs.. but the fact that so many are on drugs is not good.
So while some issues are down, I think we can make a solid case things are going badly .
People have always been bad, and this generation is no different, however, I think this generation is conditioned to struggle badly.
