Monty Pelerin’s World
Perspective, not panic, is sage advice. It is especially so in current times.
We have become a nation of wusses, sissified, soft and scared of our own shadows. Our youth has been conditioned to be scared and/or offended by nonsensical things. “Safe spaces” are required for the young generation. Debate and opposing views, even at universities, is considered too threatening to be tolerated.
Life is too tough to go it alone. Government must backstop us in virtually all endeavors. Lunches at school must be “free.” Colleges should be “free.” Welfare has become a career choice for too many. In short, we have been made dependent and are a far cry from what has been called “The Greatest Generation.”
