Why the “no adults” situation appeals to the politically young

Pratt on Texas - copyright Pratt on Texas all rights reservedIt was good to hear Rush Limbaugh, on Friday, echoing ideas I have expressed about the cultural phenomenon plaguing us. He expressed it as there “being no adults” in simple terms and quoted from a columnist expressing similar. I have long discussed this in terms of many being stuck in adolescence.

In July I wrote a commentary about the empty-headed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and many millennials, and plenty of others we should admit, having a stunted development that leaves them with the mindset of juveniles.

“Millennials, or better put perpetual adolescents of any age, are the loudest to claim freedom of belief and action for themselves and first to demand authority punish others for making choices with which they, the self-righteous immature, disagree,” I wrote.

Instead we have a plethora of those who form and express opinion solely from a platform of emotionalism and whatever is seen to vindicate or rationalize the life choices they have made, no matter how destructive to society.

Adolescence has as an overt trait the thinking of oneself, and sometimes one’s small group of peers, as being center of the universe with the added demand that all others, as well as nature, conform to the viewpoint, desires, wants and wishes, emotional attitudes, and et cetera of the adolescent.

Rush is right when he asks “Where are the adults?”

Even within the high reaches of politics and media, mostly on the Left, there is a dearth of people who act as mature adults with reason and use of judgment and evidence. Instead we have a plethora of those who form and express opinion solely from a platform of emotionalism and whatever is seen to vindicate or rationalize the life choices they have made, no matter how destructive to society.

This is attractive to the young because it’s what we do naturally before we mature and realize that most limits have come to exist for very good reason.

What do you think?...
