"I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on
frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond
words... When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and
respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise
[disrespectful] and impatient of restraint"
-Hesiod, 8th century BC


Has social media contributed to people becoming more and more and rude (or aggressive) towards one another? Does the fact videos and posts online can receive dislikes, hateful and abusive comments show that people are becoming more and more rude and aggressive?

I think I can speak for a some in saying that the youth of today are most definitely nowhere near as polite or well-mannered. I speak of the simple gestures of offering seats towards elderly and disabled (instead refusing to give up the next seat that is probably filled by their bag and so as to just sit there and play on their iPhone), holding doors for people behind you and for being in general polite and well mannered?

Back a few decades ago some countries had so called 'etiquette classes' where children were taught the basic manners and morals of how to behave in public and to extend respect to others, e.g the elderly and help them. Correct me if I'm wrong but there doesn't seem to be any of this today....

Is this all because of social media and how it makes it so much easier to criticise people? If so is there any possible solution? It just seems to me that people nowadays are more concerned with themselves and money and in the process become incredibly selfish?

I am not sure if I worded it well but I just venting frustration at how the youth today are getting more and more rude and selfish, and I am just asking others if there should be classes that teach people how to act?

If I still confuse you ask me and I'll try explain again. :)

i absolutely agree with you on this. I find the way that young people speak to each other, the abusive and derogatory language they use absolutely appalling. They think that they are being so 'cool' using this language and 'its just the way every one speaks'. Well NO! Then they wonder why they can't find dates, friends, jobs etc. Try being polite, respectful and considerate, starting with each other!


The fact that the younger generations are so accustomed to using technology from such a young age only ruins their ability to interact one on one. Attention spans get shorter as people want news and information NOW and not through going to the library. I think it is an impairment on their socialising skills. What happened to young children hanging out with friends and going to the cinema in the weekends? Now it is just technology everywhere and social networking. What society will produce is a bunch of seemingly antisocial people that lack proper communication skills. E.g speaking in internet language and not spelling well.

Obviously we must move with the times but respect and manners are things that are gained through physical interaction with people, not online or 'text-book' style...

I agree a little but i find OP's quote to be annoying.
I hate it when old people say ''todays youth this and todays youth that''

Todays youth is raised by todays elders..So if the young ones are missing manners it's because you didn't teach them.

Most of the times we worry about things that are not so important, this case is no exception. Good manners is something developing with the times. You feel it rude, the reason of which is due mainly to the fact you are old and become resistant to new things.

Ditto!

And I would even go further to say that mannerism and etiquette are just modes of outward expression. What really counts lie deep within the hearts. I have seen many uncrupulous characters who happen to be the most polite and well mannered.

Singularly focus on what is on the outside lay root to a superficial culture.

I say out with the old and in with new, LOOOOL ok kidding!

What would have seen as good manners back in the heydays , you will find it difficult in today's youth having the same......point is, you gotta roll with the times. Time changes things.

You can't really go wrong with good parenting to start with, its a step in the the right direction, until they start growing up and outside factors can change how good and bad their mannerisms will be.......

Please, it's not just kids that do trash talking or acts rude. Adults and elders are just as bad. The best line these so-called adults comes up with is "I'm older, so I can act this way" or "I know more than you kid". The worst offence is when they preach one thing yet they go around and do the same thing.

.

I agree with this saying, what about young adults acting infantile as monkeys? Yes, the media and new technology do have some influence on young folks' behaviors, but it's only human nature and partially nurture. I don't care what others assert about the nature of human beings, they're just like animals; in some cases, worse. What's wrong with criticalizing them anyway, it's when one stops observing and responding to things that one ceases to exist. The oldoldboy is right in saying that others must form some sort of a "resistance" around this sort of behaviors. Besides, it is a developmental issue for each individual depending on how they are raised, treated by society, and the circles of friends they involve in. Not every young person is misbehaved you know, they're all going through certain stages in their lives as they interact differently in different companies of others.

It's disguising how some adults talk to each other. Actually, how some people talk down on others. Look at the threads in the dear AF section. I have never seen a 7 year old use such colorful words to describe one another. But some adults would use those words on a forum where kids can easily access.

I think people on the internet are just bolder because they are on the internet. We can't literally punch our fingers through the screen to get at people. I mean some of the stuff I see written and said is really vile to the point I can't believe some of these people are real.

Though I must say every generation always say one generation is worse then the other so soon we're going to say the same thing...it's all a part of the circle of life...It does make me wonder where will we go from here because after MTV, reality shows, and whatever else is or has been on tv I would think the shock value has worn off.

I also find it funny a quote from the 8th century is still reverent today....it just goes to further my point we simply wash and repeat this thing we call life and no one has got it right yet.

Most of the Hollywood films contain lines such as "f*ck", "Son of a b*tch" and other strong words that are treated as vulgar words and rude to others, but that is life, and the original meanings of those words have been dropped and forgotten by the people using them. Nobody can insult you unless you think they do,but that is the problem of yourself.

I don't know if it "encourages people to think more black or white about things" ... and maybe it sort of does ... like whether they really, really like something OR don't like something ... rather than seeing "a good and bad" to it but I guess most people just think of almost always clicking one or the other

and even if they don't ... some people will always leave some kind of comment ... and some people don't bother and JUST click Like or Dislike ... some people just make a habit of it on everything but it's not really neccessary for every, everything

I guess it serves as a "quick indicator of popularity" (or not) ... of whether "the majority out there (OR who so far has seen it anyway) of whether they like something or not ... because really, how else is "popularity and perhaps success ... measured in perhaps the easiest way ... than to quickly see a number online virtually"

Everything "in the quick sense of measurement and amounts" is numbers to people ... that's what it "usually means to people" and that's how people take it OR take it for how it looks in the "quickest sense of assessment"

It's not the most deep way to think of and really look at something ... but for most people, and people in general, it's their "quickest way to assess something in general ... at least in popularity"

and the only people who FOLLOW IT MOST "like its some kind of gospel truth" (even though that can be b*llsh*t to some of us in our opinion and could care less) are people who care about nothing more than trends JUST FOR THE SAKE OF popularity itself rather than if it's "something of real high quality"

all numbers really mean is a measure in popularity or not ... it doesn't have to mean anything more than that.

It doesn't matter if millions or billions of other people like something or not ... if you're the odd one out and you really don't like something ... it's still your opinion. The greater numbers "don't have to decide for you" ... as long as you're honest it's still your opinion


and no ... you don't have to press Like or Dislike ... even that's a choice. The only reason people do it is because it's out of habit or they really just feel one or the other ... it doesn't have to be like that all the time ... but some people are


I think I can speak for a some in saying that the youth of today are most definitely nowhere near as polite or well-mannered. I speak of the simple gestures of offering seats towards elderly and disabled (instead refusing to give up the next seat that is probably filled by their bag and so as to just sit there and play on their iPhone), holding doors for people behind you and for being in general polite and well mannered?


When I'm on the bus or subway ... sometimes my bag's / backpack's heavy OR I may be carrying too much, and I just want a place to rest it all ... it's not always comfortable when you've got "a heavy / bulky backpack on you" or tons of bags with you (or whatever objects / items you may be carrying, especially big ones) and then trying to rest it all on your lap. It's not a really comfortable feeling ... especially if the ride is long. But I DO hate it when you have lots to carry or it's heavy and all the seats are occupied ... I fuckin' hate that.

But if I'm not carrying much and things are pretty light ... I don't mind others having a seat next to me or near me ... as long as they don't really smell bad OR "make us feel uncomfortable" (now and then or once in a while ... there's probably always someone like that to all or most of us out there) ... other than that, it's not a problem, or "shouldn't be"

But honestly ... if there's alot of space or lots of free seats available ... I usually just want to lay back my stuff somewhere while I'm on the ride ... especially if I want to look at a book / magazine / eat something, etc. Like WHEN there's so much free space
and seats available ... I don't see a problem. At least I don't put my feet up and stretch my legs out over a few seats that people could sit on

and as for holding doors open ... yes I do that sometimes, usually if people are close enough


Back a few decades ago some countries had so called 'etiquette classes' where children were taught the basic manners and morals of how to behave in public and to extend respect to others, e.g the elderly and help them. Correct me if I'm wrong but there doesn't seem to be any of this today....


lol no not really

It seems like a great idea ... until the fact that some people's ideas might clash

But I guess if they don't like it ... they can get out. The ironic thing is, DEPENDING on their behaviour ... you would PROBABLY think "they need those classes" ... but you can't really force anyone to join and participate. Participating in a class really has to be more of a choice ... IF THEY REALLY WANT TO LEARN AND CHANGE ... you can't just take people and shove them in a class they don't want to be in. It would have to be more for people who are more serious about self improvement

If you think those words have lost their meaning try using them at work to your boss and see how little meaning has been lost.

Actually we use such words in our everyday conversation, and my boss and his friends think it is the normal thing. But sometimes when I realize they are not pleasant to the ears like those of you conservatives, I will control myself and try to find some slight words instead. And by the way, if you feel somebody is rude to you, why do you not ask yourself why?

whatever, remind me never to use whatever services your company offers because clearly a culture of non-respect exists. If you do.'t respect each other you aren't going to respect customers and lack of respect guarantees poor service.


Actually, I work for a Fortune 500 company here in the states and I can attest to some areas of the company using language other areas do not. For instance, when I worked down in corporate you rarely heard people cussing and swearing unless you were confined in a small room and even then it seemed out of place. Then two years ago I moved to the field with the engineers and plan engineers and my first meeting with them had me on the floor! I couldn't believe the words which came out of their mouths in a planning meeting. They were cussing and swearing and it was NORMAL for them. After I left my boss was like, "you were too quiet!" I need you to speak up!" and I said I was taken aback by the language...All these old men swearing in a business meeting all who make well over 6 figures a year totally took me aback. Now I don't even flinch but it's funny when new people come to our department and they fall over themselves just the same when they hear the language...

I say this to say, sometimes you have to adapt to your environment. Jobs are hard to come by and if you are going to not work somewhere because of the language some choose to speak with you'll have a hard time finding steady work unless you go work in a convent. We can't expect everyone to live up to our moral standards anymore than I can expect them to live up to mine.

uh huh and I bet that they would make more money, get projects completed faster with happier staff and customers than their current level of success if they changed that to more respectful way of speaking and dealing with each other.


You would think but my company has sustained record setting profits for the last 6 years straight. Also, other companies are trying to emulate our customer service standards. We are number 2 in the industry as far as customer service ratings. So it doesn't translate there. We also are ranked high as far as overall business ethics so I guess what I'm saying is just because some don't know how to talk without swearing doesn't mean they will not be productive people in the workplace.

How many times have we heard someone was a good person, never would swat a fly only to learn they go home and commit heinous crimes at night? Anyways, Happy New Year!

I actually agree that words are just words.
Words like b*tch and f*ck are only insults if you let them be.
Personally i think they lost their power for me.

At my job they cuss all the time and no one seems to care.
If simple words hurt you or offend you that easily you need to grow thicker skin. Posted Image

Besides have you ever been to a fancy 4/5 star restaurant?
They might be all fancy and well mannered next to your table but you should take a peek behind the scenes in the kitchen.
I can promise you they aren't all polite to each other there.

F*ck, STFU, SOB etc is very ordinary jargon among high schoolers, and carries into the 20-30 something.
And while some of this cussing is bravado to LOOK 'cool', 'hip' and 'tough' ..... part of it is also genuine aggro - just hear the guys cussing.

You cannot make people wash their mouths, but you CAN control how your reply and your own words. That's more classy. Don't blink and just stay neutral. And a little humor goes a long way.

What I'd find more offensive is when people use words like "retard" - while not deliberate or not targetted specifically ... it can be hurtful to those who really are developmentally behind, or their families.

When I was in high school ... they used to called someone's gf a "mutant" = just because she was unusually tall. , gayie some insecure guys probably started it because she was taller than they were.

The rudest people I've met come from the following races/countries. Blacks, Mexicans, and Mainland Chinese.

For the past 50 years, they have been poor, and have not been able to put food on the table. Human instincts dictate that hunger comes before anything else. That's why there's cannibalism. Now that they're fed, human instincts don't change all that quickly. They'll still push their way to get what they want, because they're use to pushing through to get food into their mouths. It will take a few generations of being well feed (look at the Irish, starving back in the 1900, and after over 100 years, they're still pretty bad with etiquette), before they'll realize that they need to clean up their etiquette.

There are rude people from all walks of life.

I have personally been apalled by the behaviour of the young men on my college campus. I don't even have enough fingers to count how many times I've had a door slam shut in my face by a group of young men in front of me...who saw I had both my hands full and didn't bother to leave the door open. This is not a matter of chivalry, it's just general courtesy.

These are the educated males of the future? I find that scary and apalling.

Anyway, I've most experienced men being rude to me (perhaps my face is not endearing lol), but it is very impersonal in nature. That is, they are rude to me because I encountered them at the wrong time. When women are rude or obnoxious to one another, it is usually for some personal reason.

What I find really worrisome is the bullying that is happening in high schools today. If my kid were like that...I would totally go ballistic.

Clearly a Mainland troll.

Don't tell me what's rich buddy, because when 80% of the population is poor, the 20% who are more well off does not represent the wealth of the entire nation. Being the second largest economy doesn't make you rich, especially when you have a billion people. It's like dividing a 50 oz steak amongst 5000 people. The US is the largest economy in the world and look at the hillbillies and the blacks living in Alabama - dirt poor trash.

Busted, I think not. Rather I can see how delusional you are and how little you know about China. Shame on you. I hope you're not Chinese, because it's double shame then.

A guy with his pants down to his butt cheeks means he wants to get screwed up the @ss. Blacks came up with anal...duh! Dumb@ss.


That is what we call an "urban myth" in these parts. Actually, it came about from the American prison systems because you can't have belts due to fear of suicide or use as weapons.
Therefore since they do not have belts on their pants would sag, every race in the jail, not just blacks...hip hop artist adopted it in the early 90's and it spread to all cultures in young America.

There are rude people from all walks of life.

I don't even have enough fingers to count how many times I've had a door slam shut in my face by a group of young men in front of me...who saw I had both my hands full and didn't bother to leave the door open. This is not a matter of chivalry, it's just general courtesy.

These are the educated males of the future? I find that scary and apalling.

Anyway, I've most experienced men being rude to me (perhaps my face is not endearing lol), but it is very impersonal in nature. That is, they are rude to me because I encountered them at the wrong time. When women are rude or obnoxious to one another, it is usually for some personal reason.

What I find really worrisome is the bullying that is happening in high schools today. If my kid were like that...I would totally go ballistic.


I agree but society has always been some rude arse's it's just people are more politically correct until they get on the internet and then everyone a tough guy...

Did you guys know in old roman times they use to hang a letter on a post saying "death wish" to anyone they wanted to kill. Once this was done anyone in the
city/state could try and kill you. LOL So each generation has always been crazy.

Clearly a Mainland troll.


Just what a troll would do ... the FIRST thing you wanna do is defend yourself by calling me a troll ... AND a Mainlander. I'm NOT a Mainlander ... or a troll

Don't tell me what's rich buddy, because when 80% of the population is poor, the 20% who are more well off does not represent the wealth of the entire nation. Being the second largest economy doesn't make you rich, especially when you have a billion people.


Did I say it makes the whole country rich? No. I just said China is the second largest economy in the world AND their economy has increased ... I never said everyone was rich


Busted, I think not. Rather I can see how delusional you are and how little you know about China. Shame on you. I hope you're not Chinese, because it's double shame then.


I'm not living that much "under a rock"

one of the most pathetic things about trolls is they always want to take some kind of "shitty little credit in their posts" ... and they look so pathetic doing it ... like yourself

OH JEE WOW I GUESS THAT MAKES YOU SO EDUCATED ... I tear a hole in your ass. that's what I do to trolls, all the time ... and I DON'T mean anal

you must be some kind of newbie troll ... because you're looking pretty pathetic right now.

but don't feel too bad ... all trolls do, especially AFTER THEY GET BUSTED. Don't even try to defend yourself ... you'll probably just look worse
