Proudly Against the Ancient … The Open Contempt of Modern Youth for the “Old”

“… the child shall behave himself proudly
against the ancient,
and the base against the honourable.”

“You’re just a bitter old man”

is the disgusting mantra that I have noticed
being served as an Insult
by hordes of young brats
in comments, during my few forays onto the Internet.

If you want to take the moral temperature of humanity,
visit ‘tumblr’ or ‘YouTube’
for a lesson in depravity.

FAR from being a source of wisdom
and life experience for immature and ignorant Youth –

those who are older in years
are now insulted by the impertinent,
vicious-minded creatures that saturate
not only the Internet, but the world at large.

The average 40-year old today
gives observable demonstration that he or she
neither possesses the mental capacity, morality,
or maturity of a 14-year old of fifty years ago;

nor do they possess the humility
to be ashamed because of it.

When society began to be dramatically re-engineered
in around 1990, one of the novelties
embedded into the collective conscience was that children
should begin to address adults
by their first name.

This contempt for respect towards elders
was immediately reinforced by parents
and today, the resulting arrogance
is all-too plain to be seen.

Immature and impudent youngsters
now regards their opinion
as being every bit as “valid”
as the life experience and developed skill
of men and women

who have lived respectably upon this earth
for 20, 30, or 40 years before such ignorant upstarts
were ever conceived.

Perverted degenerates have ALWAYS existed,
and “Popular Entertainment” has always pandered
to the most depraved human dispositions –

Hollywood: the paedophile’s delight, Shirley Temple,
whether being first directed, then pulled,
into the groin of Buddy Ebsen during a dance …

outfitted in specially cut hemlines,

or far too many prevalent situations
that can be no accident,

those who delight in depravity
could always find it … IF they looked.

It is simply that now … depravity is commonplace
and anything can be excused away:

the systematic and easily-traceable re-engineering
of the human race
has been so phenomenally successful that
to be peaceful and sober-minded,
is to now be dismissed as being ‘weak’,
‘miserable’, or ‘narrow-minded’.

And to be old … is too be dismissed
as stupid, ‘bitter’, or worthless.

In a age of such monstrous arrogance,
there is nothing that a moral,
conscientious, articulate man or woman
can possibly do to promote courtesy,
consideration, or conscience

in the dead creatures
that roam the earth today.

Modern Humanity ?

There is more ‘class’ in a barnyard pig
– and those poor animals are sadistically tortured,
brutalised and horrifically killed in slaughterhouses,

so that crude humanity
can eat bacon for breakfast.

“Do What thou wilt
shall be the whole of the law.”

… may be the way of modern humanity,
but it will never be my way in this world.

When the term ‘arrogant and impertinent youth’
can just as readily apply to modern adults in their 40’s,
one can only expect the Me First savagery
and contempt for the peaceful, the infirm, and the aged,
to become worse and worse.

The problem is that, at the moment,
when “old” is used as a derisive insult by the young,

it is difficult to imagine just how much lower
the human race can descend.
