    Hey now, let's not rush to judgment on Hanna Barbara...Scooby Doo (the greatest cartoon of all time) was one of theirs.

    The Flintstones was just The Honeymooners set in the stone age, that was before My Three Sons and Leave It To Beaver.

    Now here is another take on the problem. This guy raises some interesting ideas, and suggests the root of the problem in an enlightening way.

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    IMO, THAT is it in a nutshell. ...... Although we could list hundreds of reasons, I say they all lead back to one thing.

    Has to be pretty depressing not knowing that the good guy runs the show, and that in the end, the good guy wins.
    I can legally defend myself against bad guys, but there is no legal defense against bad guys with badges.
    I do not kill animals, nor do I pay other people to kill them for me.

    I think it's all this gender identity thing they are allowed to go through, and aren't for sure which restroom to go to.

    I know I am unhappy when I really need to go and can't get to a bathroom soon enough, and I have no gender identity problems!

    Okay, let's cut to the chase here. The real reason kids are unhappy is because they haven't been introduced to shooting sports. Everyone knows that happiness is a warm gun barrel. Without guns, life lacks purpose and meaning so it's no wonder they feel lost, left out and abandoned.

    Because I spend a lot of time working with kids, I was invited to attend a seminar on youth development Saturday. The session I took was "Brain Development in Young People." Without going into boring detail and clinical terms etc., the long and short is that there is a disconnect between brain development and stimulus and how the younger people (Gen Z - 7yo to 22yo) process the outside world. Things which are important to the Gen Z'rs are not the same things that are important to the Millennials and so on. For example, Gen Z'rs are a rent to rent rather than a rent to own generation. Nothing is permanent. This changes as the brain develops, but the higher order parts of the brain are not fully developed until age 22-24. And it makes a lot of sense to me. Just something to consider.

    The Millennials are now beginning to buy homes in greater numbers. I think that the Great Recession and college debt stunted the growth there and the possibility of home ownership. Gen Z, which is the group now just graduating college this year at the oldest part of that range have the college debt as well as the belief that the world will end in 12 years. When they hit 30 the realization that they are still here will dawn on them and they will begin planning more for the future.

    Another factor may be the burgeoning addiction that we see with the resurgence of marijuana use promoted by legalization, along with the kid focused alcohol flavors offered. Any addiction can slow or stunt the maturation process and also lead to depression.
