Comparing 1920’s to Today
For one in the 1920’s; the living arrangements were vastly different than they are today. Families mostly lived under the same roof and consisted of a father, a mother and however many children they may have had; until married. The mother’s staid home and took care of her home, children, husband and her community through community functions. The father worked to provide for his family and the children were taught respect and went to school or were punished for disobedience.
Today; most families consist of a single parent and that is primarily the mother. Men no longer want the responsibilities of parenthood or home ownership and if the women in their lives don’t have an income that can actually support the men, most men want nothing to do with the women. Most women want their cake and to eat it too causing an even greater divide between the genders. Women want to exert virtually no control over children doing bad things and therefore most of the children have no idea what respect and obedience means.
Note: President Obama is just learning about exerting just the right amount of punishment to Syria for the disobedience of laws. Disobedience is disobedience and when you take the fear of punishment out of the equation then you have disobedience.
Secondly; in the 1920’s young women were taught from little girls what was acceptable in public and what was not acceptable where clothing, make-up and attitudes were concerned. No self respecting woman of the early 1920’s would be caught wearing micro mini-skirts and dresses or “Daisy Duke” shorts in public. They might wear something with a low cleavage, but not something as revealing as most women wear today. In fact, it was unseemly to wear pants of any kind outside of the home if you were a woman. Men did not ordinarily run around in skin tight shorts or without wearing at the very least a T-shirt to cover their chest outside of their home. In 1923 came the “Flappers” with bobbed haircuts, smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. They began setting the rebellious trend in America.
News Flash: Men’s sexual appetites have never changed from the beginning of time and men knew what other men would think and do, because they weren’t much different; which is why most men tried to protect their daughters from other men they believed to be no good for their daughters. This is also why men were much sterner with their sons than they should have been. What was not widely known is that women are just as much a predator as the men are. This became evident in 1923 and has been growing ever since.
Today women try to change the way men have been since the beginning of time and expect immediate results; all the while wearing whatever they want knowing it would tempt men to look at them and more; heaven forbid anybody say this to their faces because you are then an enemy to be destroyed. Actually in many cases the roles are totally reversed. A woman can now seduce a man without any repercussions while the men are persecuted. Some women will use men until they drain them dry and then threaten to have them imprisoned for rape; this is a fact I have seen with my own eyes.
Third; we didn’t have access to other parts of the world as we do today. Common people could not communicate to other common people in other countries through computers and cell phones. Back then there was a telephone that was attached to a wall with a cord; long distant calls were static laden. News media’s didn’t repeat the same reports every fifteen to twenty minutes. News traveled slowly through the USA and was either read in news papers or if you were lucky enough to own a radio one could listen to the news there. Televisions and computers had not been invented as yet. Airplanes were not commercialized and there were few in existence until after World War II.
