There's a theory called enantiodromia - excess of one thing gives rise to the opposite. E.g. no recession = confidence. Confidence leads to risk-taking. Risks lead to recession
My parents/grandparents generation came to UK because they were poor with little opportunity in India.
(1) Problem - Sikhs coming to UK didn't know English or have qualifications = had to work manual jobs = low income, trying to build stable life here
(2) Solution - Encourage their children to study hard = good qualifications = good jobs and higher income
(3) Excess - Comfortable off-spring enjoying the life their parents made for them here, 'wrapping our children in cotton wool' - not teaching them how to fight, defend themselves.
What happens next?
Comfortable life, living in a safe country = we think it will last forever, but it might not 🤔
