Is it me or are we the most spoiled Americans in history?

Postby Marijuana Pepsi » Thu Nov 30, 2023 11:04 am

I wan to talk to you about what makes me beleive we are the most spoiled group of Americans in history. We can order our food to be delivered, expect rates on our food from restaurants to be cheaper all because with our large money we EXPECT IT?!?! Like we are some billionaires that can expect other Americans to do our jobs for us !!! What ever happened to actually physically being at a grocery store and EXPECTING to pick up our groceries? What happened to order our food from a restaurant and paying them a tip for bringing thr food we ordered?
Lets face it: We have becomee lazy and expect it to be done by OTHERS. I refuse to do this.. I shop at my own grocery store and expect to physically bring home the groceries. Those who do otherwise have more money then sense. But how do you feel? Are you disgusted by others doing this?Are you tired of people from other countries trying to scam you out of your hard-earned money? I am aM! Or is it over 50 thing??

Many Americans are quite spoiled and ungrateful for their country and those who have built it

This such a boomer talk...

And it's not even true. I wonder what you'd you say about the supermarkets of old where you couldn't even pick up the stuff, but had to ask the cashier to get it. And then it would be the cashier checking the prices instead of having self-checkouts. I wonder what you'd say when you had people in McDonald's taking your orders rather than being you doing so in automatic machines.

If anything, businesses are trying to pass more and more work into the consumer, dictating the rules and the prices, and the consumer gladly goes along because it will mean fewer social interactions.

Boomers complaining that the newer generations are lazy when their idea of a perfect life was abusing a secretary at the office and then coming home to find a housekeeper cleaning the house and a babysitter educating their children.

We cannot legally own other human beings that we can force to do grueling manual labor for us.

Granted, the state of workers' rights still sucks ass, but there's that.

It is my experience that most who complain about "woke people" cannot actually make a coherent definition of "woke." Or at least, one that actually shows why it is a bad thing.

Dude, we're all spoiled, our ancestors starved and fought all the time, and now even in the backwater of Africa there's coca-cola, it's like that all over the world.

So you can't actually tell me what it is you are complaining about. Just slapping a buzzword on it and calling it a day.

Eh, in some areas yes, and maybe generally somewhat, but I would have to give it to the Boomers. That was before the whole American system went to crap.

So like I said... no coherent definition. Nothing that describes such a disparate group in any sensible way. Just a buzzword.

So people you are against? Or illogical people?

Woke accoridng to emrrriam wbester is either

aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)

or can be used like this
in contexts that suggest someone's expressed beliefs about such matters are not backed with genuine concern or action

Example:There is never really a moment where a person of color doesn't have to deal with discrimination, whether it be veiled and passive or as blunt as possible. So, woke white people, why can't you step in?
—Lauren Sanchez
Enter the age of the performatively woke brand. Politics has become a kind of fashion accessory for corporate America these days, a way to profit from protest.
—Jon Gingerich

Woke is used to describe a facade of caring about social issues when it really is for show. Which is ironic because this describes liberal politics basically. Liberals ruining actual social activism and progressivism by fake pretenders trying to get street cred. Woke is the result of the establishment.

By we do you mean the older generations? Because the younger generations are kinda screwed with inflation, high rent, high government debt, high food prices, stagnant wages, high medical prices, and high education prices. All combined with heightened rates of poverty and enogh school shootings that it's become barely news worthy.

Yes,

But you can say that for every generation after the greatest. Boomers were spoiled compared to them, etc. etc.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

The most fundamental problem of politics is not the control of wickedness but the limitation of righteousness.
