I know exactly what you mean. Accountability and responsibility has been bred out of the past several generations. It goes beyond the usual, where each generation before me always pointed at the next generation as a slacker. In this case, it really has happened. My sisters and every generation thereafter have this sense of entitlement. There is no accountability anymore, I see it everyday in the workplace. There is no "job well done" mentality anymore. No "take pride in your work" attitude. I out perform young men and women 15 plus years my junior on the job on a daily basis.
They don't care either, they really don't. However after the holidays are over, they will as they'll be job hunting again. I was told today that I'll be taking their hours and positions. My managers would rather give me those hours than have all those slackers taking up space. Even my children, despite my teachings, exude these tendencies. One is coming around as she has a job after school but the other two, I fear for their future.

Abraham was chosen, he had free will and could have disobeyed but he didn't.
