I'm going to revisit this thread because of something that happened this morning, on the way back from my workout. I was going through the walkway from the back to the front of the local mall, and some young guy came running around the corner, flying by me at a dead run, dodging everyone in his path and almost knocking people over. I was about to yell an expletive at him when another guy came around the corner yelling "STOP HIM!" Apparently, he had stolen something from a store. The poor guy chasing him could not keep up (overweight versus skinny kid) and I was about to take off after him as I was still pretty pumped from my workout, but as I turned, a policeman came into view at the other end of the walkway where the guy exited with his weapon drawn and ready to fire.
OK, not a good idea to go running, as the officer won't know who is who. Better to just get everyone here out of the way, so he has a clear line of fire if he needs to shoot. There were a couple of ladies there when the guy came by, but they made a hasty retreat in the opposite direction, so I was the only one there. Got myself out of the way and found that there was also a woman that the officer was chasing. She got into a car, parked right at the end of the walkway. The officer came up to her, gun pointed at her head, yelling to get out of the car. Then he yelled "don't start this car!" and she started it--apparently knowing that the officer would not fire
on her. I watched her turn the car wheel to the left and pull out, trying to crush the officer between her car and the one next to her, but he just moved out of the way, chasing the car (it was backed in, so just went straight out). My view was blocked by some storage crates but I heard the sound of a taser, then the officer ran back to his car, got in and went in pursuit. I'm sure he's got the license plate, as police now carry body cameras.
The young generation has NO RESPECT for either the laws or public safety. And they have learned that they can, for the most part, get away with anything. The prolific abundance of drugs, for example--illegal, but thousands, if not millions, of guys on YouTube confessing to both possession and distribution felonies. Yet the law does nothing. I've seen this before, back in the 1980s, as I have worked with police, sheriffs, firemen, paramedics, DEA, FBI and other law enforcement agencies--and watched how the government literally "tied their hands" to PREVENT them from enforcing the law. This has been going on for 30 years now, slowly and surely, to get us to this point--but why?
I'll tell you this, it is not about the law enforcement agencies "getting more customers" and filling the jails. Though that may be "big business" for some, there is something darker going on here. This is a massive, MIND CONTROL system, creating a dissociative identity disorder in the upcoming generation--and the upcoming generation has bought into it, "hook, line and sinker--and subscription to 'Angling Times'."
The Hook, Line and Sinker are the three essential pieces of fishing tackle in angling. In the English language, the phrase 'to swallow something "hook, line and sinker" ' is an idiomatic expression used to describe a situation where a person or group accepts wholesale and uncritically an idea or set of beliefs. ("Angling" is fishing; "Angling Times" is a magazine about fishing.)
Law forms the basis of social interaction. Unfortunately, most laws these days have been perverted into "corporate law," where the law exists to protect the rich and powerful (individuals and corporations). And law extends far beyond the police. As Napoleon Bonaparte said, "Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich." Now the rich have created a generation of zombies... it is like we are living The Omega Man

I don't believe that we fear everything, I think we fear life when we are alone as individuals. For example we are more comfortable talking amongst a group rather than alone and this applies to many other situations.
In my generation, there is a saying, nunquam minus solus quam cum solus
, which means "never less
alone than when alone." Personally, I enjoy solitude--it gives my mind the opportunity to explore new thoughts and ideas, and to process and store things that I have learned. But then again... we weren't part of the "Internet of things." If you wanted to know something, you read books and remembered
it. Could not just pin a tweet.
Also from my time, is a very apt description of the upcoming generation, "the lights are on, but there is nobody home." This is where your fear of being alone comes from. When you become disconnected from the social collective (personal or Internet), there is no thought stimulus "internally." Everything becomes empty and the darkness starts to close in around you, and then the fear starts.
Sol, what was the last book you read--by choice, not being told to? And I am talking about a real, paper book--not a PDF.

I would say that one of the reasons for this behavior is the lack of individuality, my generation was raised through a industrial school system which aims to produce workers rather than people.
Well, somebody has to clean the homes and cook the food of the NWO.
My generation did not rely on teachers to tell you what you should know. The teachers were there to assist and guide
your learning--not to provide it. Gopi has shown me some recent, student textbooks--an atrocity, IMHO! No thought required to pass the class.
The lack of individuality comes from the lack of knowledge about the world around you--your "self" has no idea of what possibilities are available, except those you are forced into. If you ever want to be an individual, you need to learn HOW to think for yourself--and not rely on others to think for you.
That's why you have (or had) free will.
