I think we worry too much about that. And the worry may be positive. But think about when you were young... Didn't people complained, at the time, that youth (you) had no morals? and that that generation was "lost"?
It's a human trait to always think that "in our time" things were better, people were better... but if you really think about it, what were the morals of enslaving people because of their race a little more than 100 years ago? or to not let women vote about 70 years ago? or to kill homosexuals just because they were homosexuals about 40 or 30 years ago? In civilised countries (there are countries that, unfortunately still do all those things), we are not losing morals, on the contrary, we are gaining them. Yes, there are things that are worst, but, in general I think things are much better nowadays. And youth will always be youth... don't expect them to be polite, and nice and well behaved. "you" weren't! the youth in your time was also rebellious, and crazy and did not behave very well, and embarrassed their parents... and some took drugs and did bad things, just like nowadays. But now, we are the ones complaining (and forgetting), and yes, we should complain and try to make things better... that's how it works.
You'll have to explain what you mean by "morals." Generally young people (of which I am one) are doing and saying things that many of the older generations would consider "immoral." For example, homosexuality was, to the older generations, largely considered immoral. Nowadays, with the advancement of scientific knowledge, many more people do not consider homosexuality as immoral.
Behaviors and practices that are good and bad for humanity change with each passing decade. One could argue that some of the things young people do these days are hurtful and immoral, while some of the things they do have improved over other generations.
I think morals are fading away. Because, we see lot of crimes, rapes, murders, violence, absence of kindness among people towards helpless and weaker ones, disrespect to elders - all these are signs of deterioration in human character. These things are increasing day-by-day and we are almost daily hearing about these things taking place all around us. So, I say morals are fading away.
