It’s amazing at times to come across something so old that can easily be applicable today. It happened with an episode of Dragnet. Three goofy teenagers, not liking the United States and their condition too much, want to start their own country and are caught stealing to fund their venture. Joe Friday sits them down and sets them straight. The scary thing is, this exact same speech could be delivered on college campuses around the nation!
It’s stunning to listen to this. Even before the technological advances we have made, this makes total sense.
I love the way it starts. With the typical, “You just don’t get it!” The part that stands out the most is when Webb talks about people wanting instant gratification. That is so true. Everybody wants what they want now and if they don’t get it, look out.
Share it with others! Maybe they’ll play it for their kids and people will realize that newer generations have it pretty easy compared to our elders!
