Maggie I agree with much of what you say. My parents and all their generation, the ww2 people taught us to respect others. Growing up we never locked our doors. Nothing was ever crime ! That all started changing by the 60's, the libs and their emphasis on rights. the birth control pill changed everything. Free sex was truly free. At public colleges, girls showed me the pill they got from the healthcare center on campus either dirt cheap or free.It was a guys dream. sex with no consequences. what could be better ?
