Offensive Threat Posted July 23, 2013 Share Posted July 23, 2013 I hear it constantly. About how things were better in the "old days" . Even among people half my age. Most of it is dead wrong. They are viewing the past through rose colored glasses. I remember how things were before Cel phones and debit cards and computers ( yeah, Im old enough). It sucked. Making plans for a Friday night was serious business. If people werent where you expected them to meet you there was no way to contact them. None. It was over. Thats just one of many things. My sister, who is older than me, has talked about how she used to be safer walking alone in the good old days. She never felt safe walking alone. I would go get her from the bus stop after dark when we were young. She doesnt seem to remember that. She is safer now than in her entire life when walking alone. This article sums up some of the misconceptions that keep going around. And remember someday, not so far from now, these will be the good old days. http://www.economist...-prevention-not Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
