How has it come to this?

It isn’t very long ago that we didn’t need to lock our doors.

Now a five year old can not sleep safely in a caravan with her parents a few metres away.

How has it come to this?

    Yesterday sitting at a pavement table of a Hastings Cafe, two children I assume were siblings, an older boy aged about 10/11 walked past, the boy just behind a younger girl.
    For no apparent reason he gave the girl a rather vicious elbow jolt to her shoulder causing a reflex wincing reaction that was clearly a response to pain and she seemed to expect another blow.
    I caught his eye and he let her be but there was a flash of anger directed at me that I should have the temerity to stare him down, thankfully he moved on but it was alarming and scary and maybe I was a little foolish to involve myself.

    We are creating some rather frightening people among us and I dont know the answers but a lack of understanding of consequences is a large part of it imho.

    … and the lack of understanding of consequences, per above post, comes from lack of responsibility, and that has come from 80 years of welfarism. I don’t think it too simplistic to say that, given the complex ways in which the welfare state undermines first the natural bonds of love and affection within the family – and in so many ways – then the work ethic.
