Society fails to teach kids responsibility

Good job in your recent letter to the editor Mr. Kampfer, of blaming society’s ills on an entertainment venue (TV) and the privacy guaranteed by the state and federal Constitutions, and not where the responsibility really lies: with the breakdown of the family and the lack of teaching responsibility to children.

Generally, today’s youth has little or no respect for themselves or others. Due to political correctness, society has lost its old sanctions like speaking up when the person with a boat load of groceries is at the express checkout, or openly criticizing neighborhood kids who are openly “up to no good” for fear of retaliation.

Blaming society’s ills on everything but the obvious problem is an extremely popular and myopic activity.
