    Here's one.

    1957 - Johnny wears a hooded sweatshirt(hoodie) to school...no big deal.

    2008 - Johnny wears a hoodie to school and is sent to a room to wait until his mother brings him something different to wear because it has been decided by the BOE that hoodies could be an indication that the person wearing it is a gang member and/or drug dealer. Not even the pe teachers/coaches are allowed to wear them.

    2008 same scenario, Johnny replies UP YOURS MOTHER F****R, and doesn't get a knuckle sandwich.

    Ummm, no. The entire post was how behavior changed from 1957 to 2007. Same for my example. The race of the man in my scenario remained constant, the behavior of the people changed.

    The good ole days usually don't hold up once you take off the rose colored glasses.

    So the human race is not perfect and never was, are you saying that in general society is "better" today than 50 years ago? Please go watch "Father knows best" and then watch "Swingtown" and you tell me that the moral corruption of today is better than it was back then.

    Paul,

    There's the sticking point. 1957 there is right and wrong. 2007 what you believe is right for you and what I believe is right is right for me. "They" don't believe in truth or right and wrong. Moral corruption isn't as bad today because of moral relativism. Some people are actually looking at today through rose colored glasses.
