Today we see extreme examples of bad behavior. One could say that depraved behavior has always been at large but due to instant media we see it occurring more frequently. Perhaps it does occur more frequently and the reason for it is a lack of shame. Too often people who are caught destroying private property justify their actions through equivocation. Shutting down a speech or protest by pillaging and destroying public and private property because you do not agree with the message is reprehensible. Injuring or killing another human being in the process is abhorrent and arguably evil. Yet there are some who can find justification for this despicable behavior.

It is the intellectually dishonest that can find an excuse to behave badly and justify those behaviors through evasion. The truth is not important and truth becomes an obstacle to the advancement of the argument. Anger feeding action and action assuaging emotion is the cycle that fuels bad behavior. Essentially, I behave poorly because you made me. I cannot clearly state my position so in order to make a point I feel better when I destroy something even if it is my own (one can insert, property, reputation, etc.).  

Something has happened within the last thirty to forty years. Possibly secularism is to blame thus a generational detachment from moral obligations. Baby Boomers were raised on the golden rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. In the process of raising their children the golden rule was lost. It could be said that a generation and a half of self-important neophytes are creating the next generation, a generation of feelers as opposed to thinkers who do not know the feeling of shame.

We forgot to pass on the demonstrative connection of shame and bad behavior. The failure to do so left a door wide open for anarchy. Self-restraint in the face of emotion gave way to acting poorly and justifying those actions with the lack of self-respect. It is never too late to provide lessons in humility, morality, and dignity as long as we do it with our own measures of the same. We must think before acting and act with respect for culture, individual, sacrifice, and all that is good. We must not act because it is easy. We must consider that our actions are difficult and necessary.

I no longer think we as a nation are lost to the shameless and irresponsible.  They, I believe, are a vocal minority grabbing sensational headlines.  I pray I'm not being naive.

They are a very vocal minority, using violence to make it appear that they are a vast majority!
