Short Story : Glitch by Kenny Kore @kennykore

Thursday, July 19, 2018

It's the usually hustle and bustle of the "melting pot" big city of New York today, as three friends take a stroll down the "concrete jungle" where dreams are supposed to be made, discussing amongst other things, today's policies, and measures which are supposedly designed to make human society "better", wandering if it's all not just a glitch. Is it?

CYRIL: "As a child, when my parent would catch me in a lie, I would be extremely strong and powerful in my denials.
This usually caused my Father to be extremely strong and powerful in his, and his belt's pursuit of the truth..."

CHERYL: "You do realize by today's standards your parents would have been convicted of the crimes of assault and child endangerment.
You would have been removed from your home.
Your parents would likely be forced to get anger management classes to get you back in their home."....

"You, on the other hand, would have been guided to a compassionate counselor, who would reward you with candy and small trinkets, for you to tell them how awful your parents were and how you had a right to an opinion.
You would leave those mandated sessions deeming your parents neanderthals, and even more solidified in your wrong perceptions."

"Heaven help us!"....
"Please understand me. I do not condone child abuse but at times I wonder what we have done to this generation, or, maybe, just maybe I am getting old."

CYRIL: "No, you are right, sis.
My Dad went to work for ACS (then known as BCW) when we were in our early 20's.
He came home one day and said, 'You know, by today's standards, what I used to do to y'all was child abuse.' and this was 25+ years ago..."

EDWARD: "My mother raised four kids alone in East New York.
She'll BEAT us with whatever she picked up; belt, extension cord, frying pan, etc..
You had to keep moving and do some skillful ducking and dodging.  We did not sass her and we did not play games with her.

I'll always love my mama."

"In light of what's going on in today's world/society, I would definitely say bring back the old ways of chastising. LOVE IS NOT INDULGENCE.

"Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away."-Proverb22:15.

This must be what they knew back then, but we're leaving GOD behind,( it's the technocratic age they say ), but HIS Word is everything, and if most people aren't to darn distracted, everybody would see that this Politically upright, save face system of a society we have today is a GOD forsaken glitch.
