Many people express the desire to go back to the fifties and the values people had back then.
What do they mean by that? Obviously, people weren’t saints back then and many wrongs were committed.
When people talk about going back to the values of the fifties and sixties they are referring to the things we were taught, whether we listened or not.
Values such as hard work, self-discipline, marriage, self-reliance, respect for authority, studiousness, patience, the values that ultimately would lead to a happier more productive, successful life than one would have if they don’t follow these principles.
The idea that one should first finish their education, get a job, then get married and once established, then have children.
Believe it or not, at one time, if a couple couldn’t afford to have more kids, they didn’t have them.
When you start a family before you are financially or mentally prepared, you are only asking for trouble.
Life is hard enough when you try to do things in the proper manner, it just gets harder when you break the rules.
No one is ever guaranteed a successful life that has no problems, but when a person follows these simple rules of success, the likelihood of having a good life greatly increases.
Even if issues do come along, which they will, if you have followed the game plan, you will have reserves, financially and spiritually to carry you through the rough spots.
These are time-honored traditions that were carried down through the ages, by responsible people have guided people since time immemorial.
They are just good common sense values to be followed by everyone, regardless of race, creed or national origin.
They have nothing to do with white supremacy or racism, sexism or any other ism.
