Is it me or has civility gone out the back door in this society?
I mean what's up with the rudeness that we endure daily while we work,shop and play?
While growing up in the late 1950's and 60's I can't remember people in my neighborhood being as uncivil as my neighbors are presently.
Everyone knew just about everyone on their block or street and would always say hello or good morning .
But in today's world ,it seems to me that people go out of their way not to interact with you.
I read an article in the New York Times recently on this subject and some of the reasons given for the up tick in rudeness were,anonymity,stress,lack of time,lack of restraint and insecurity.
What are your thoughts on this question of mine?
