So true. I can shop when/where I please and have sushi almost every day. Life is good so far and I am retired on a pension!

Excellent answer. In many ways, the world is indeed a much better place than it was. To me, people have become more humane and evolved since the devolvement of religion. However, in many ways, the world has become worse-terrorism, wars,etc.

Third best answer. A minus.
JT. Every generation complains about the morals of the next. Young people have always had sex outside of marriage, people have always had affairs, and dare I say it, there have always been homosexuals. What's the beef?
They weren't considered to be "Politically Correct" now were they??
?? People are no different now than they have ever been. Although our collective human morality has improved greatly. What you called PC, someone else calls live and let live.
That would be an erroneous understanding of it, then. Political correctness involves imposing one's preferences onto another through various enforcement means both social and legal, not living and let living.
Absolutely Atikos, I agree with you 100%. Look where it has gotten this country. DH.. People are most certainly different. There is more cruelty and lack of morals than there has ever been. People killing people so nonchalantly. They r desensitized.
JT have you never studied ancient or medieval history? These were times where cruelty, lack of morals, people killing people nonchalantly was not confined to criminals and drug dealers, but instigated by the Church, the aristocracy, and governments.
DH...... You are exactly right "medieval" times! I would hope that we have come so far from the times where such evil was "accepted!" I'm afraid we have not. We are a society of Romans gazing into the arena watching others slaughter one another.
JT. Are your tortured for your beliefs? No. Do you see gladiators fighting to the death on TV? No. Do you neighbours in the next town raid yours and rape the women? No. Does America invade sovereign nations? Er yes....Maybe you are right then.
