What is happening to our young people?
However there is a movement amongst our young professionals in particular which is pointing the British youth in the direction of Caligula! The problem is that most of our young people know nothing about the Roman Empire and their eventual demise. Looking at some of the photos appearing in the press and also witnessing some of the the behaviour of our ignorant young university graduates I wonder what evil power has gripped hold of them?
Some time ago I read a letter from the mother of a university student (a lad) depicting the effect that the Student's Union had on the Freshers. In the very first week they organised piss ups for almost all of the vulnerable. The strong will always ignore the temptation but they are targetting the weak, those lacking in confidence and those that need a guiding hand.
They are intent on breaking down all barriers. Anything goes and the police are complicit. They should be making arrests but when the debauchery is at its height there is not a copper in sight. How can these young people find it cool to lose their utter dignity, their self respect and their moral compass? What do their parents think?
We are ignoring a major threat to the youth of the country. Anyone can ignore the conventional rules of society (and most of us did at one time or other) but not in this mass total disregard for decency!
You see in my total madness I actually believe that someone is directing an absolute breakdown of decency in the country. It has been planned and is being orchestrated. Step by step our kids are being led down a path to the abyss. They have lost all self respect because it is so easy to say 'What the hell, I was pissed', someone, somewhere has got to reverse the trend.
We have leaders like David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg (all supporters of the EU) so just tell me which one of them has shown concern about the behaviour of the young people in Cardiff and elsewhere?
