I think that to lie to further one's own cause is simply human nature sadly to say. The bigger the opportunity for self-gratification, the more apt a human is to lie to obtain it. Just look at politicians. This trend is growing with incredible speed as each generation becomes more and more used to entitlement.

Why work hard? I am owed a good job that's easy. Why work at all when I can suckle the government teat on welfare?

It is a sad state of affairs, but I think it's just the way things will be. Folks are so damn worried about offending others, that they have forgotten to be true to their own conscience. No morality, no consequences, and getting praise even when one doesn't deserve it are all contributing factors to this social decline. I could go on and on and on regarding this topic, but I'll leave it here lest I stand on my soapbox for too long.

In closing, my solution is simple. Stop all this feel-good hippie bullsh!t mentality that has consumed this fine nation. Speak your mind, embrace controversial thought and speech, piss people off without fear of reprisal, and accept that people can and will fail and it is not the government's nor society's responsibility to pick them back up, dust them off, and tell them it will be alright. A little failure and hardship goes a long way in motivating someone to do better, be better, and achieve more.

Take away failure, and failure is all you'll have.
