Yes, I am of the opinion that morals have taken a major backseat in the lives of many in this world.
They have declined significantly over the years, especially here in America. It's hard to see it when you're younger, but when you cross over 40
years of age, you can look back at the younger generation and compare them to your generation when it was their age and say, "yeah, major difference
in morals, or lack thereof".
Morality is: The quality of being in accord with standards of right or good conduct.
It also means: virtuous conduct
In our world it's become "cool" to be bad, do what thou wilt, if it feels good do it, have sex with whomever/whenever you want, abortions are done
without a thought, sex and soft porn are all over TV, cursing in public is everywhere, kids drop out of high school at a 50% rate, drugs and alcohol
are a favorite abused recreation everywhere......look around, watch the news. bad things happen more frequently in our present society than say, back
in the early 1900's through early 1960's. More murders, more muggings, more rapes, etc.
Younger people can't see the change in morals, but older folks can see it clear as a bell.
