It Was Better Before Freedom

Consider the value of people prior to the 1960s. They ate normal food and had normal physical proportions. Most were naturally attractive. Trauma and broken families were rare; consequently blue hair, piercings, and tattoos did not appear.

It is not important to make history. You should focus on achieving basic competence.

Women were pleasant and respectful, not loud, rude, or obnoxious. They knew how to cook and clean, which meant they could run a home and help sustain a family.

A man meeting such a woman could see the possibilities and worked to win her hand so they could raise a family with his income and her home skills covering both fronts.

Today many singles are unattractive and unskilled, as if to argue against the possibility of a family. If they have a family, often it is by accident that will bring lasting struggle from failing to possess the basic skills needed to raise children.

Being loud by repeating opinions learned from the media isn't helpful, especially when those are dishonestly crafted to appeal to crowds.

A home's cleaning has to be outsourced to maids for a few hours of work, debunking the notion that housework is laborious. It shows only that someone has no skin in the game and cannot provide value to the family, though time is made to watch shows and keep up with texts and Facebook.

Similarly, cooking is outsourced to take-out restaurants. There is no knowledge of nutrition or preparation of basic meals. This would be a disaster, except collectively lower standards means incompetence is okay when most others have agreed to know nothing.

As a result, society has fewer families and marriages because essential skills are now lacking and many have nothing to offer a prospective household. Those that form are mostly dysfunctional from lacking the abilities expected of their parents and grandparents.

It was better when developing value was favored over dramatic individualism.
