Trolling...
is where one seaches other folks' blogs just to post responses from the extreme opposite point of view. A middle-aged woman (premierejan) got a "top blog" in Mindsay for a jeremiad regarding the F word. My response:
premierejan , your use of the phrase "the younger generation" delights me. It's a phrase that puts in short form your real feelings about something. This shorthand language of yours parallels how the four-letter F word is used by so many people -- to express emphasis, disgust, anger, and so on. Why do people use the F word so much? Because they've been brought up in environments where the intricacy of language hasn't been emphasized, where moral and ethical implications of words and actions haven't been interrogated or appreciated, let alone thought about. Welcome to postmodern America, where people (especially your "younger generation") don't have a transcendent referent (like G-d, The Way, a life of service) to live by. Instead we live day to day, with mildly hedonistic, shallow joys, chasing an impossible self-help "happiness," perpetually tugged at by the visceral feeling that we are unhappy. And some say in response, "F---!" At least I do sometimes.
