I once had temp-job conducting a survey in this town. I imagined everyone would really hate being bothered in the street by someone asking them to do a survey and be mean but actually 99.9% of people were perfectly nice and civil (even at this one location where we had to survey hyper-stressed commuters on the way to catching their trains). It was odd for people to ignore you and incredibly weird when someone was actually rude.
lack of parenting. most kids today rarely see thier parents. it now takes 2 incomes to support a houshold. then mom goes to Fla beach for vaca dad goes to Col /golf kids get sent to camp. seen way too much of it. parents want to give thier kids everything so now we have self centered entitled children instead of moderation respect. Very few know how to correctly parent(i'm not perfect) but I'm OLD School. You should have to pass a test to have kids. My kids are polite well respected and respect/ high honor/mentions and don't get everything they ask for. or I'll stick my boot where the sun don't shine.
Since both parents are now working and kids are being put into day care, many parents assume that someone else will teach their children the niceties of society. What it comes down to is parents need to teach kids manners at home and expect them to use them there for them to naturally use them in out in the world. Also some parents just give in because they are too tired to fight about it. I could go on and write a book about it.
With all that said I also believe you get what you put out. If you are polite most people are polite back. If you are rude people will be rude back.
That's life. You just have to deal with it, and try your best to be strong and keep your head up no matter what. Don't care what anyone says or thinks. The Hell with them. People will judge you always. There's nothing you can do about it.
Society is mean and rude because that is human nature...mean, rude , destructive, critical.....we were born into a world that requires a bit of peace.....the challenge is finding peace among all the chaos.....
It is how you choose to see it! Humans are not evil things... Look at all the people wanting to help you here. Some people are unnecessarily ride though, bad upbringing? Society seems to share the shocking and wrong instead of the humble and kind.
People are worst online I can't count how many times i've been trolled by some racist witch......it's all about looks if you want to get anywhere in this world you better have blonde hair blue eyes nice skin and you must be perfect....
Society has not changed and never will. Romans cheered as the Christians were eaten by lions, and the Christians cheered as heretics were burned at the stake. You simply hear of the bad because that is what our twenty-four hour news wants to carry. All anyone can do is choose who they associate with!
