Is there more evil in society today?


I ask because of watching a documentary on TV about Scotland in the 1960's and how parents were confident about letting their kids walk to school on their own, people left their doors open without fear of being attacked or robbed, kids played on the streets seemingly safe. I remember in the 1960's and 70's being able to do this as a kid. So is there more evil today or is it that we're just more aware of the nasty things in life due to modern technology, the media and so on?

    You've made a good point here about the media. They go into a frenzy of delight when anything nasty happens and hype it up no end - well at least in the UK they do!

    Hi Nettlemere, that's a good point about kids being harmed by their own families as opposed to strangers. I know, men in particular, around my village are put off talking to kids who pass them just in case people think they are are perv! This is sad!

    You are so right with disrespectful kids. This is likely why a teen in FL ended up losing his life...over loud music and probably talking back or threatening his elder when asked to turn it down.

    I can see where you are coming from but some things you mention have upsides too. Maybe people are being more honest nowadays, less hypocritical. I have no problem with overtly sexual themes: violence is accepted everywhere, why not sex?

    I agree. I would add only that those of us who didn't receive right teaching in childhood can, from our own inner impulse to live a life dedicated to the good (dedicated to God, some would say) open ourselves to teaching & grace & transform o
