Have we become overly civilized?

What can we do in the modern world to restore to our kids the virtues of physical and psychological ruggedness? Anything that even smacks of teaching our kids to have "stiff upper lip" is seen as harsh, but day after day in my teaching and in the wider social interaction, I see kids struggle because they AREN'T given this message at home, by the media, by schools. There is a balance, to be sure, but how can we swing the pendulum part way back?

civilization without ethics is useless

Nope, and hopefully, we'll keep on civilizing, more so.

People have gotten to self-centered, to lazy, and to PC to do what is right.
