We have a family member who has just been paroled for the third time. Each time he has gone to prison, it has been his parents who blew the whistle and reported him. Hooked on bad drugs, a thief, and occasionally violent, he had robbed his parents blind. And yet they kept taking him back after each imprisonment. They DID believe he was capable of hurting them and they slept with a chair jammed under their bedroom door knob. And evenso, his mom inexplicably wanted him to come home when he got out this last time because she didn't think he could make it on his own. (The rest of the family made sure that didn't happen.) This nephew has siblings who are salt of the Earth, never got in trouble with the law, and have been exemplary people, as are the parents. But a mother's love can be a force more powerful than any amount of fear and violence and it often is not objective or even rational. Nevertheless, when you have so much evidence of so much anti social behavior from so many of the young, and an increase in the volence produced from that, there must be some underlying reasons for that. This does not excuse the person who makes a wrong choice, most especially a destructive violent one that hurts people in the worst ways. But I can't see how an awareness of how our modern culture contributes is a bad thing.
