    What is considered moral and immoral evolves with each generation

    In my generation unmarried sex, homosexuality, divorce, swearing were all considered breeches of moral behavior.

    However...discrimination against blacks and gays, denying women equal rights, family violence were all considered moral

    whatever changes to the good or bad in morality there has been over the past 50 years is debatable.

    one thing that screams at me every day is the change in people's demeanor. i was a youngster during the period that inspired the show "Happy Days" and people were generally happy, pleasant and friendly toward strangers.

    not any more. everywhere i go, people are sullen and angry. they call 9-1-1 at the drop of a hat for the most ridiculous, petty crap.

    my vehicle was stolen a few months ago and i've had to ride the bus a lot lately. whoo! at least they're conditioned in this town to give up their seats to the elderly and disabled.

    Funny...I heard an interview with a woman that wrote a history of the birth control pill this morning and I really couldn't believe how differently women were treated in viewed back in the sixties! College students had to pretend to be married to get the pill, SCOTUS ruled that married women could get it but not single women....GMAFB! It really just highlighted the struggle against the moral majority retards.

    Do you live in Florida by any chance? People here are rude and paranoid...I'm always amazed when I go elsewhere just how friendly people can be.

    i traveled extensively in the 80's and 90's and have been settled in austin, texas since the end of the century (woo?!?! i can't believe i'm saying things like that).

    austin's actually in better shape than most places so with a big population of throwbacks still trying to be sociable, creative and happy, all the fear and loathing sticks out worse than places where everybody is insane.
