What a Difference



Post-Script: A rambling typecast, composed en machina, (typos and all,) starting with the weather and ending with global politics. Perhaps this is what it might be like, were you and I to have a friendly face-to-face conversation, rambling all over the map, not knowing where it might end up.

These thoughts I've gathered through recent observations of various media sources, indicating that under-employment of young males is a crucial problem at the core of many issues faced globally, from ISIS to Greece's insolvency to gangsterism here at home. It's eery how common our problems appear, once we get beyond the surface distinctions of our diverse cultures, discovering we all share common concerns for the future of our children. Rather than seeing the world through the eyes of nationalist citizens, perhaps it would do us better to see the world as through the eyes of individual parents.

Good point about putting the young people to work. Our government has done more to stifle employment than create a job generating society.

But the problem is, young people don't want to work. They think they should be paid the same as worker with 15 years experience. I have a lot of chores I would gladly hire an inexperienced kid, for $8 an hour, But many would rather steal or shoplift.
