Incentive, such a basic concept is so lost on contemporary society that it’s almost maddening. Okay, in my previous post on reward and punishment I went over the basics on this topic. Yet here we have yet another example in regards to the how skewed the paradigm has become as of late. A white knight is who actually acted out of turn is being regaled as a hero, while the 'villain' (who may not be a hero let’s be honest) is treated with extreme prejudice.
No matter how much men may complain about it, the powers that be don’t seem to get what’s actually going down, or more than likely they don’t want to see the reality on the ground. The behavior that they want to see increased like men becoming responsible and contributing to society is actually being punished, while men are seeing ‘kidults’ ‘players’ and ‘PUA’ being rewarded at virtually every turn. Good women are hard to find in this day and age, why one may ask? Due to the fact that being a faithful wife will actually grant a woman scorn and the adulation's for being a ‘slut’, an empowered womyn and a single mother are ubiquitous.
In my past days of being a believer I can remember my mother stating to me many a time, “Good will become bad…bad will become good.” in the future. Well, this is the paradigm we are living in during this day and age and just looking out the window one can readily see the results.
Until we change this warped reward/benefit structure for our young, expecting things to improve is simply a fools errand. The men and women of the past had incentives to behave the way they did, which is why our forefathers and mothers acted in accordance to morality. Our contemporaries also have incentives to act the way they do, which is what we are seeing today. Until this situation changes…there is nothing else to wonder about.We will simply see more PUA, more players, more sluts and less upstanding men and women.
