When I think of our society 40-50 years ago it seems worlds away from what exists today. Technology perhaps is allowing for wicked behavior to be public knowledge but that's not the problem. What's wrong with people practicing the golden rule: do unto others as you would have others do unto you? Today we have friendships formed just to use people, constant liars, cheaters, and shows telling the tale of jealousy among friends resulting in murder. What do you think is the cause of all this wickedness that seems to be part of modern culture? Are good people the minority now?

Absolutely! So much this answer... I have nothing I can even add, other than go out into the real world more and turn off the TV. Interact with your neighbors and look for the good in people consciously.
Great points Dashing Scorpio. I must say that there are good people out there but I can't live in a bubble of Chicken Soup For The Soul and pretend I don't see what I see. Yes, there are good people out there but reality is reality.I give light/love.
I couldn't disagree more. People are much more rude on the internet. Some of the things they write they would probably never say in real life. In fact, sometimes it gets out of control--look at the forums.
24 hour news access,cell phones & the Internet make it possible to learn about all sorts of things that if happened in the past you wouldn't know about unless you personally lived in the region. These issues may not be near you!
