A Nation of Cheats

Read this and weep. No excuses, this time!

I wonder what the percentages are of the cheaters who voted "Obama" in their school elections?

This is not news. Adolescents have always tested low in quick decision making and ethics. The last neural linkages in our brains to connect do not do so until we are in our early twenties. These linkages have been connected to spontaneity and affect decision making (as in driving, shop lifting, test taking.

This is not news and does not forecast ethical maturity.

On the other hand, when issues have been contemplated for a period of time, teenagers show a greater capacity for "other concern" and self-sacrifice. Perhaps because they have not yet taken on the burdens of supporting themselves which can lead adults to be more self-serving, hoarding, and protective.

Your post actually argues in the opposite direction from your wishes. If one knows the data.

It's "A Blog of Cheaps" when it comes to real knowledge.

"Adolescents have always tested low in quick decision making and ethics."

Again, I wonder what the percentages were of those who cheated and voted "Obama" in their school elections.

"Cause I'm 18...and I do what I like!"

No wonder the Democratic party preys on young college students.

Err...I meant "Democrat Party".

Voting may be a quick decision for you, Izard, but, as I said, teens tend to show great deliberation and moral capacity when it comes to things outside their own behavior.

I say"tend" because obviously studies describe the majority numbers. The smaller numbers of teen moral idiots do remain and grow up to be just like you, angry on the outside, anxious on the in.

"Voting may be a quick decision for you, Izard, but, as I said, teens tend to show great deliberation and moral capacity when it comes to things outside their own behavior."

That doesn't even make any sense whatsoever, Feodork. On one hand you say that teens are unethical and spontaneous...then you say they are deliberative.

Which is it?

I tell you what they are...not ready for prime-time.

It's why Democrats prey upon them.

"teen moral idiots"

As opposed to teen immoral geniuses?

You continue to make me laugh, dude!

Izard, I know complexity is tough, and if you had passed algebra in high school you would be better prepared, but try the following:

Those areas of the brain that excersize a quick ethical review over spontaneous impulses do not close connections until early adulthood. This often shows up in making bad driving decisions, drinking decisions, shoplifting decisions, test taking decisions, lying, etc. Areas where the thrill of the moment or defending oneself in a context of pressure, these are moments teen can often fail.

On another topic -- take a moment Izard to clear your fuzzled brain -- on moral and ethical issues unrelated to self and deliberated upon, teens most often demonstrate a greater moral concern for others than does the general society. Thus, voting for Obama.

Two different areas of the brain. Two different results.

Your post is uninformed and bogus. A Blog of Cheaps.

"...these are moments teen can often fail."


Give 'em a pass, eh?

As I've been repeating...The Democrat Party is the party of irresponsibility.

You keep proving my point.

Feodor December 11, 2008 at 3:57 PM  

Such reasoned and sharply detailed engagement with the material, Izard. How do you find the time to be so... so... developed in your intellectual breadth?

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
