Denise's comment on the faster rate of information travel is spot on, though I still think kids today are mostly crap.  You ever see that Yo Gabba Gabba and Dora the Exploradora crap?  Back in my day we watched Thomas the Tank Engine and Beavis and Butthead.  Quality, educational entertainment, that was.

From my perspective, it has to do with lack of proper education and environment which in turn has to do with the loss of traditional values in favor of excessive materialism and excessive sensuality (which lead to loss of emotional sensitivity and even pure violence).

We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

Thomas the Tank Engine? Oh please!

This is the second thread in the last few days in which the quality of children is measured by the television they are offered.

These are truly the last days.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
