I spoke to my old English teacher a few years back and she said she spends the bulk of her time while grading essays searching Google to see how many of her students plagiarized internet sources. Kids really are lazy these days...

 

With great power, comes great responsibility. Oh yeah, I brought out the old Spiderman line. But, it's completely true with the resources we have at our disposal by just taking less then a second to do a search on something and get information on it. People growing up are getting dumber and lazier because of the technology they use. Tweeting, texting - that's fine to use no grammar in those contexts depending on who you are texting or tweeting, but so many younger people have such ****** writing skills that they will write a high school/college paper the same way they are texting or tweeting. It's completely retarded and those people have zero self respect for their own work they submit.

 

I did a report on Napolean when I was in 7th grade and it was awesome - learned a lot about that time frame and about him.

Napoleon was an enigmatic figure. He was a great leader and motivator. He was just a bit sadistic. I used a great quote of his for the basis of a morality presentation I did for work some time ago. It reads as such...

 

"Even in war moral power is to physical as three parts out of four. "

 

-Napoleon III

 

I believe this to be ABSOLUTELY true in its proper context.

We're in a different time, and culture is changing. Every generation has complained and worried about the next, but it doesn't matter. Each generation is relatively the same: all have their geniuses, slackers, leaches, etc. With computers, tv, video games, sports, etc there is more to stimulate ones mind now then there has ever been. It's not easy for the youth to focus on something they don't care about.

They're not being taught to prioritize the things that are actually important though. The distractions take the driver's seat, while the things that matter sit in the back. The media and governing bodies are trying to systematically dumb down society because a stupid society is easier to control. This is why taking a proactive approach to parenting is paramount moreso than ever.

I agree somewhat, but I don't think they are trying to dumb down society, that would hinder economic prosperity in the long run. A stupid society is no easier to control then an intelligent society. It's a passive society they want, in my eyes. People won't raise hell like they use to. If you're gonna lay down in the face of adersity, don't be mad when others walk all over you.

In my opinion, the very passivity you speak of comes from an overbearing government. With things like the Patriot Act, NDAA, and 18 U.S.C. ?605 it is hard for one to protest anything the government wants to push or to find out EXACTLY who it is you're actually voting for. This all seemed to start when the baby boomers took power. Greatest generation my ***...

Absolutely! Completely agreed. I can't believe it. I'm only 30 years old and I'm complaining about my generation and the one right before me. I do recognize that this generation has its geniuses, slackers and leaches, just like any generation in the past or future. My complaint is that while certain technology may seem like an incredible asset to everyone, it is also a huge detriment to society.

I was watching a show the other day on multi tasking and focus. They did a study on young college students who claimed to have incredible focus because of how good they are at multi tasking in todays fast moving society with all the technology we have at our disposal today and what they found that most people are not only lousy at multi tasking but even worse they've sort of become dependant on doing many things at once so they get even more easily distracted when they don't have multiple stimulations at once because they get bored and can't stay focused when they actually do try to focus on one thing at a time.

 

It seems like with all these distractions and the technology that's created a sort of singularity with instant connectivity to the world and information right at everyone's finger tips that it's actually moving towards a society that is a jack of all trades and full of mediocrity with alot of cheats and laziness.

 

The values of honesty and disciplined dedication is on the decline as whole i think.

 

It's no wonder alot of the geniuses come from countries with what could be called hard knocks living conditions and yet they rise up from it because they are almost forced to understand the value of hard work, discipline and sacrifice.

 

As opposed to countries with a more privilaged populace which tends to breed a spoiled brats mentality that doesn't value or respect anything and always wants constant stimulation and instant gratifcation without putting in the the effort.

Near to the east

In a part of ancient greece

In an ancient land called macedonia

Was born a son

To philip of macedon

The legend his name was alexander

 

At the age of nineteen

He became the macedon king

And he swore to free all of asia minor

By the aegian sea

In 334 b.c.

He utterly beat the armies of persia

 

Alexander the great

His name struck fear into hearts of men

Alexander the great

Became a legend 'mongst mortal men

 

King darius the third

Defeated fled persia

The scythians fell by the river of jaxartes

 

Then egypt fell to the macedon king as well

And he founded the city called alexandria
