What vital skills are current generations failing to learn?

They fail to learn what the generations before fail to pass them.

They fail to save money because their parents live their whole life on credit. They fail to work hard because schools spoiled them instead of teaching them the value of building things by themselves. They lack empathy because they parents didn ‘t even raise an eyebrow while looking to death and war on TV every night. They think they deserve more because society made them think they were so important. They don ‘t know the first think about nature and agriculture because all food they ever ate came from Walmart.

Inheritance is the most decisive factor in life, despite all human efforts to invent something fairer. The effects of breeding and education are visible over generations. The failures and flaws of a generation are the the reflects of the previous ones.
