Right. I was just sampling a conversation I had with me dear mum when she watches something bad on the news and asks what the world is coming to. This is where I explain to her that things weren't better in the old days, it's just that you didn't hear about it much. Old men who complain about the kids nowadays probably had sexual relations with women before marriage. I just happen to believe old 'ethics' haven't proven to be better than new ones.

Okay, my mistake. I misunderstood what you were saying. I believe morality was far greater than it is today. I can see it in television, movies, and overall respect and attitude in youth.

I agree that people did some bad things in the past, but the overall morality of our society was better. Divorce was looked upon as wrong and so was sexual relations outside of marriage. Today, sexual relations is looked at from the left as "just do it and hand out protection to 12 year olds because they'll have sex anyway."

I understand your position. I think my difference with you is that I view the difference today as one of people having more freedom, and I think that's a plus regardless of some bad things that may occur from it. Morality in the past came from the pressure of social conformity. I myself would prefer not to have condoms handed out to 12-year-olds but if a high school student came into their school clinic to inquire about contraception I'd want the information and help there, even if it were my child. Many high schoolers are going to have sex regardless of moral pressure and education, and fewer unwanted pregnancies lead to fewer abortions. Yes, youth may be more disrespectful nowadays, which I do often find annoying, but having the freedom to do so is more important than enforced manners.
