If a child below the age of ten knows what strong discipline and/or pain feels like if he steals other people property, that discipline instills in his conscience that stealing is wrong.
And it will be followed by punishment or pain. Then his/her conscience will never let him/her forget as long as he/she lives by giving him/her a doom like feeling when anticipating doing wrong.
Otherwise, if a parent doesn't give a damn and take no action when a child steals and does other wrong deeds, the child will grow up believing stealing and wrong doing is just fine as long as he can get away with it and doesn't get caught.
And the real key here is: He doesn't have that strong conscience to give him that doom like feeling when anticipating doing wrong.
So, as you can see, the core problem today is due to our welfare state, the USA has produced hoards of incompetent parents that are ill raising their children, period.
Another key is: The traditional head of household provider made damn sure proper norms, traditions, and a conscience were instilled in the very young, whereas uncle sugar never made sure of any of that. Duh.
How can anyone expect a nation to remain great and stable when the next generation is not taught the basic fundamentals of human survival.
And today most proper norms have been lost to a great extent and is why liberalism is out of control and wreaking havoc? Can I get an Amen? Hallelujah.
