KorbenDallas said:A lot of people like to blame the liberals/the SJW's/Obama/Cultural Marxists, etc, for the decline in society, the standard of women, etc...and they would be mostly right, BUT I think nothing has been a greater force for the destruction of society than modern technology.
Let's pretend Republicans were the President since the 60's and you had had better immigration laws. You still would have had a spoiled boomer generation, and the rise of the smartphone and social media.
That's what's fucked up everything. In the 911 thread the OP says that society has declined more in 15 years than the previous thirty, and I would agree, but its because of the personal computer and personal cell phone.
This phenomenon has even effected the Muslim world. The vast majority of young Syrian men would much rather go to Europe while playing games on their cell phones than fight for their country.
Why? Because they see how much better life is on their phone, and find out about how to get there using the internet. Cell Phone's and computers have made everyone like a child.
This can't last can it? The millennial generation gets a lot of flack, there really are some great millennial's of every race, color, and creed, who, have got shit on by the way, and STILL rise above everything including less opportunity, young women who outearn on average them because of their pussies, bad ratios, and terrible social dynamics.
Having said that, the attitude of these young girls is unbelievable. There are a lot of exceptions (I find girls who actually have a job to be the most pleasant actually, easiest to pick up, most feminine, that's another thread) but on average, these girls are completely rejecting men from having high status in their lives, popping out 1.4 children and then expecting everyone to help them, then find out it doesn't work that way, and now their miserable. Almost every hot young girl in America is on that path. Not saying you can't bang them, but that's the path their on.
Colleges don't teach anything, young people have too much debt, the country has too much debt, this is going off the rails.
I can see it. I feel sorry for those who aren't preparing now.
Technology IS ultimately causing the decline of society, and this concept goes SO MUCH deeper than you probably think.
I will not go into it in too much detail because I could write an entire article on the topic, but I will say this:
1) We are not evolved for such a technologically advanced world. We are biologically evolved for a far more primitive, tribal world.
2) Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Nothing in this world is free. This means that for every benefit we get from technology, we pay for it in one way or another. Take modern medicine for example. It saves lives, but in the long run, it greatly weakens the gene pool. Telephones and computers help us communicate, but they also make it easier for the government to influence and control us. This basic dynamic is true for every single piece of technology out there, even if at first you don't see it.
No generation truly has it better than the last. If anything, each generation probably has it worse than the last. I'm sure many people here have heard someone say "today's working poor live better than a king from 500 years ago." This may be true if one defines "living better" as having access to more advanced technology. However, a counterargument to that would be that an upper-middle class man, or even a rich man, in this day and age has less freedom than a serf from 500 years ago.
