The only values held by society are pleasure and instant gratification
People no longer care about how their interactions with others effect the outside world. Today, everything is about instant gratification and pleasure. I can do whatever I want to anyone, but they dare not do it back to me. I can close the door in someone’s face, push them aside in annoyance, or publicly humiliate them. Anything that gives me a shot of pleasure is acceptable – because I am the exception. This mentality is being fed by social media. People are given the perfect place to totally immerse themselves in themselves – if you wanted to you could literally spend all day everyday for the rest of your life looking at nothing but pictures of yourself, and doing nothing but talking about yourself. None of your 5,000 “friends” will say anything, because it would by hypocritical of them.
I would say that about a rough 75% of children who grow up in America and were born past the year 2008 will never know what true virtue is. Virtue has decayed over the past years due to mass media. Things are not made with quality like they used to be, and almost everything done is for money. People now are putting less heart into their work and more greed. The children who grow up around these lack of virtues will never know true virtues at all.
We are becoming an unruly society
We are in a role reversed society. More and more kids are defining the boundaries rather than parents teaching core values, family customs, and patriotism. There is little to no discipline for poor behavior. The word “excuse” has replaced “accountability”. Rarely do you see a kid hold a door for someone, say hello, or even hang up the phone when talking to you. They EXPECT everything the world can offer them rather than see what they can offer the world. The more disrespectful people get, the quicker it spreads to others. Not trying to sound like doom and gloom but that’s what I observe on a daily basis. It used to be rare and now it is norm. One can only imagine how unruly this society will actually get before the trend reverses again.
Yes, television network programming.
I can blame many networks but the one that I’d like to point out is MTV it’s a prime example of where our values lie. People think its just entertainment but it does something to your mind when you watch it. It screws you up, makes shocking things less shocking. So normal life becomes boring ad people need to act out.
Definitely, we just have to take a look at our uprising generation.
This generation knows not what respect is, they don’t respect themselves nor others. Majority are not disciplined and have little to no idea of what their morals and values should be. Their mind is empty, we live in a society where we see kids disrespecting elders and talk down to them, an action that would have gotten you your teeth knocked out of your mouth in my days. Kids aspire to be and admire celebrities such as Drake, Chief Kief, shows like Jersey Shore. All or most that only promote profanity, promotes kids to let their desire rule over them, to be guided by lust instead of having self control. Saying that its okay to call women *itches or an African American men a *igger. Where the brand of your shirt is more important then the grade on your test. We see little girls using their bodies to call attention to themselves posting half-naked pictures on social sites and young boys who no longer know the role or definition of a gentleman. It’s sad.
Yes, America has become an utterly depraved place.
Jersey Shore, Honey Boo Boo, TLC, Chris Dorner being praised as the new Django, bombing foreign lands for oil and the media that cheers them on, the perversion of our history by liberals, the militarization of our society by conservatives, the vilification of Muslims by the right, and the vilification of whites by the left. Need I say more?
Deteriorating family values
I see a decline in traditional family values; marriage between a man and woman; sense of responsibility regarding making it on your own; belief in God; pride in your country and your workmanship.
An alarming increase in out-of-wedlock births, particularly in the black community.
A decline of respect for public school teachers and people in positions of authority is eroding our great nation.
Too many people are dependent on the government, both local and federal for handouts.
After 5 Decades of witnessing Society Values
I have to say that society’s values are almost non existent today. There is little respect for people or property. Anyone over 35 or 40 years of age can tell you just by looking around. People don’t stop at stop signs, don’t let you out of your parking spot. Park their shopping cart in the middle of an isle and walk away leaving the isle blocked for everyone else. These things show that society is selfish and self centered where in years gone by people would be polite and caring about these things. Today it’s all for one and one for one. To hell with everyone else.
It’s okay as long as you’re happy.
It has become far too acceptable to be a loser in the U.S. It is okay to disrespect others, to be poor, to have children out of wedlock, to marry/divorce/and remarry so many times, in general mediocrity and failure is becoming far too acceptable. Our country is destroying itself by accepting these things as long as people are happy. A murderer is happy murdering people, but that doesn’t make it right, A rapist is happy raping, but that doesn’t make it right. Nobody wants to take responsibility for their actions, but they still want to do things that require responsibility. There are consequences to every action, and they should be thought through before going through with the actions. It starts with the children, a child born into an insecure home made up of married teen parents who will most likely divorce and start new families will most likely grow up in poverty where the decline of social values is rampant, and then accept these things as a way of life and create the same life for their children and project these atrocities onto the next generation
Society values are deteriorating.
Self centered is the word I use for society today, especially the younger generation. They do what they want, don’t respect their elders….These days it is more important to have branded clothes rather than having A on that mark card.Back in my time, it was all different .We knew the meaning of OBEY and RESPECT.
