Lacking respect in a world gone crazy

Sitting, sipping coffee, and perusing my newly found Feedreader 3.05 (the best free invention known to bloggers), I came across Jabari Asim's article on personal responsibility within the black community. I appreciated the good news held within it, and it got me thinking as to the biggest problems facing our youth.

They are growing up without dads, in failing schools, and in a world of terror. Our young people have everything, yet they have nothing. I'd like to suggest that America's inability to pass along the virtue of respect is our greatest failure: personal respect, respect for others, and respect for property.

One example: within four clicks, I can have unlimited access to online sex. And, we are not just talking about the 'professionals' who sell their identity to Hugh Hefner. Countless numbers of young adults have prostituted their innocence, bodies, and sexuality.

Webcams are the tool of choice for young adults lacking self-respect. Within a few minutes, a teenager can become a prostitute with the idea that somehow popularity, money, and fame that follows is the solution to all of their problems.

Or consider the viewer; what kind of self-respect does it take to sit in front of the computer, investing thousands of hours and hundred of dollars to purchase subscriptions to sites. What a low view of sexuality and self-respect the viewer of such filth must have.

We can sit pretty all day talking about the theoretical solutions of pornography, our founders intentions for the first amendment, and internet restrictions; meanwhile, how many more young adults will prostitute themselves.

Does the person who has self-respect, respect for their innocence, privacy, bodies, and sexuality? I can imagine so.
