Yes. Very accurate description of the world I grew up in. Lately, I keep coming back to the conditioned fears of generations of my family: being afraid to stop spanking children, to stop bullying, to stop being racists, to stop voting for war, to stop believing in imaginary beings: and how it is just too easy for it to go on as though it’s OK. I have to chip away at my prejudices and realize they will always be there. Hopefully, I haven’t passed on as much of that to my children, because I am hoping yours won’t put up with it. Humanity needs to shrug off this sickly pale stagnation-for-profit.
