What do you think has led to such a careless regard for human life?


I recently wrote a hub about what we tell our children about death and dying, and in that hub mentioned that just over 100 years ago, death wasn't nearly as mysterious or scary as it is now, because most children experienced the loss of a loved one first hand, at home, but that some modern day practices have led to an emotional disconnect from the process of death and grieving. A comment from a reader today made me start to think about the attitude that society has taken regarding the value of human life, especially as seen by the young. What do you think?
