Was Clint Eastwood right about our generation?

http://screenrant.com/clint-eastwood-man-figurativ...

He believes we are living in a p***y generation.

Its all about who gets offended, men are effeminate weaklings with no moral values, children are killing their parents over chores, schools are spending 9 hours *discovering their feelings* rather than learning anything practical, boys are spending more time playing xbox live than outside getting fit, you can't let your children beyond the street because sexual predators are more rampant due to a "tolerant" culture, kids think they can sleep around without marriage and live together under the guise of "sexual liberation" bull****, COLLEGE GRADUATES have NO skills whatsoever in the real world and feel entitled to a cushy six figure jobs sitting on their butt doing nothing(minimum wage or climbing the ladder is *beneath them*), music is TERRIBLE piece of garbage with all this soft sugar cookie crap, guys are dressing like girls and are cutting their wrist because someone said something "mean" to them, women(or should I say GIRLS) today don't have a 1/10th of the STRENGTH that women had 3 generations ago, no one knows any thing about money or finances and have to live paycheck to paycheck while simultaneously spending money on a HDTV trying to also buy the BIGGEST house they can possibly afford, American Citizens (both republican AND democrat) are handing the constitution to slimy politicians because their too weak to take care of themselves and are too stupid to interpret it, Parents are spoiling their kids rotten and think that their "pumpkin poo" is a gifted genius(*spoiler* HE'S/SHE'S NOT!), no one reads books anymore and think they are entitled to television in every room, cowardly, amoral men are sleeping around and thinking they can leave the mom raising the family by herself because they think they can WHORE around like a punk, worst part of it all is that all but FEW know how to raise their kids with some d@mn sense anymore.

Parents aren't instilling values anymore and the word "sacrifice" to raise their children is now taboo. Blind leading the blind when it comes to parenting.

Media is devoid of values and FORCES a politically correct culture where everyone is equal regardless of how hard they work.

Schools are too busy singing "kumbaya" and they wonder why they are at the bottom of the world when it comes to education.

Its "offensive" to wave the American flag boldly anymore because it might "hurt some one's feelings" when you show support for your nation.

Nobody believes in pulling their own weight in society.(What do you think happens when nobody pulls their weight?)

Do you agree with Clint Eastwood when he said we are living in a p***y generation and when do you think this happened? (Don't feel afraid to tell it like it is. If they can't handle truth then they have no business answering in the first place.)

    I agree with him! Kind of. I definitely think that there was something...I don't know what...strength, or maybe a simplicity, to life in the past - which is definitely missing now. BUT, there also were some things we gained, which past generations lacked. Women have greater rights. There's a higher standard of living. And more tolerance. I do believe tolerance is a good thing (though obviously we shouldn't be tolerant of everything, i.e. sexual predators - and perhaps, it does lead to a slippery slope because where do you draw the line?).

    But, it is true that families are breaking down and children seem more spoiled, disrespectful, and uncaring about education/reading books. Children are growing up way too fast! (I'm not even older, and I feel this way.) This is definitely unfortunate. To an extent, morals do seem to be dying, though not entirely.

    I think it is partly because of technology and the ease of life nowadays - people just don't have to work as hard for everything (for a lot of Americans) and don't understand/appreciate that. Food is in the fridge, entertainment is on the computer/tv (haha, as I'm on the comp...), and friends are on the cell. Hollywood might have had an affect on culture (although it may be that Hollywood merely reflects cultural changes), making people more superficial and vain. I think parents should realize this and try to be more strict in raising their children. I'm not saying be authoritative bullies, but they are still parents, and have to guide their young, impressionable children until they are older. They should teach them respect for elders and the joy of learning and reading.

    It can't be that genetics just all of a sudden changed, and children are naturally more stupid and ignorant, so something changed in society. I think some of the "traditional" values should try to be re-instilled, but not completely stuffy, restrictive rules (like women belong in the kitchen). And education and teacher quality/strategies should be improved too.

    But not everyone is like this, and I know people who agree with me, so at least, not all hope is lost!
