It’s a matter of balance. I don’t think 50 years ahead but I don’t live like there’s no tomorrow either. The problem with conscientious and disciplined people is that they plan and plan and never seem to do anything else.
But generally speaking I agree. We live in a culture of instant gratification, and that is historically a clear sign of decline.

Most thing are a matter of balance, Paradigm, though not all who are conscientious and disciplined fail to act. I do, however, admit that many of them can’t adapt to changing situations as well.
It’s also not just instant gratification. There’s a fatalistic and quasi-nihilistic component to the whole thing as well.
