There has been a serious slide in our culture that has invisibly snuck by most people. It has changed how most people (much more in the younger generations) think about themselves and their lives, and they don’t even know it. It used to be that people fit in one category, but now that category is almost all but empty and everyone has shoved themselves, without knowing it, into the other once vacant category.
I guess we should feel a little vindicated since so much time has passed since this once vacuous position came into existence. At the time the introduction of it seemed insignificant, but its after wake has been disastrous. I call it the: “why me” slide into the “why not me” pit.
