Sometimes I read something and it is so ridiculous that it seems fabricated. Sadly, this is not. I just read about how some idiot parents were sitting around making their toddlers fight each other- taunting them, trying to 'toughen them up'.
Reading this story literally made me sick. And what really shocked me is that these parents were all women. How stupid of a parent do you have to be making your kid do this!? Isn’t our job as parents to protect them – keeping them out of conditions like this? Thankfully these unintelligent people were caught because they filmed it.
What I find even more disturbing is reading about how people are looking around the internet (like YouTube) trying to view the video. These are probably the same people who were hoping and pushing for that Steve Irwin video to be released.
What's wrong with people these days? It seems as if humanity is getting lower on the food chain every time I read something like this; or when another reality show about people getting hurt or humiliated ("Live!") is created, or even times when people look up to celebrities as leaders (trust me, actors are not leaders. They are some of the most screwed-up, selfish people in this world. Only a tiny number of ‘the famous’ are great.) - I can go on and on.
A few weeks ago, I saw that movie “Idiocracy” (written and directed by Mike Judge of 'Office Space' and 'King of the Hill' fame) the movie was O.K. and could have been better executed, but the idea was interesting. The basic premise is about how the stupid people are breeding more than the smart people and in 500 years, a hooker and an average guy would be considered the smartest people on earth.
If there are more parents like this, then I think it might end up happening...
