If you have been following this blog, then you realize that the Brexit Referendum results have caused much consternation. Seemingly, the young are hardest hit. Or so they report. They blame the older Britons for some combination of racist, xenophobic, dumb, senile, out of touch, retarded, etc. for the referendum coming out wrong. Perhaps they should consider applying some introspection.
Since time immemorial, young people think that they know it all. In my case, I am not young enough to know everything. They are being filled with knowledge and gaining capabilities, and as such feel that they should flex their new found muscles. When I was that age, I knew enough such that I realized that I did not know it all. Much of this probably came as a response to watching older relatives who did know it all. In addition my childhood environment was rather modest; and if I wanted something, I had to figure out how to make it happen. This leads to resourcefulness, and perhaps more importantly, a realistic view of the world. Modern children have everything given to them; their parents respond to their every whim. SO why wouldn’t they want to world to respond to their whims as adults?
This goes double for girls. No more are girls taught to be modest both in dress and manner. They can engage fully in hypergamic combat. They work to get boys to respond to their every whim.
Then there are the fathers of these princesses. They also respond to their every whim. Everything is negotiable, and limits are driven to the edge.
Under these conditions, perhaps it is too much to expect women to possess any kind of wisdom. It might be best to mostly ignore them. I am sure that Ton would suggest that the best thing to do is to just tell them what to do and show who was boss. He might be right.
Though it wasn’t always like this. The Bible says explicitly that the older women are to teach the young women. At the bare minimum basic simple wisdom was expected. However in the present days, the young are just so awesomely awesome, that such teaching is not needed.
