"Good people are a rarity."

I just came across this assertion. Is it true?

I think it may be true. If so, was it always true? Or is it a myth?

And then there is the definition of "good" in this instance. But will all that up in the air, I do think there are fewer people who adhere to some kind of code.  In many cases, this is not really their fault.

I'm talking about people who were never taught to do right or be good. Instead they've been constantly invited and enticed to do wrong and bad. There are probably a good number of people our there who can't even discern good from bad or right from wrong.

I know many will disagree with me and that's fine. What do you think about this?

I wholeheartedly agree. Over the years, I've noticed a massive decline in manners, decency and upstanding morals.

I have noticed an uptick of families perpetuating this behaviour, too - the parents are rude, disrespectful and even criminal, and their children, by and large, grow up with the same attitudes - it's normal for them, it's all they've learned.

Saying that, I've noticed more and more older people becoming less 'good', as if they're 'unlearning' all they grew up with and decided to follow the majority. They know right from wrong and choose to do wrong if it benefits them. Maybe I'm kind of jaded, but yeah, good people really are few and far between.

@warped   It has infiltrated nearly every institution and gov't. That may sound conspiracy theory-ish or over the top, but it appears to be objectively true.

Absolutely true. The robotic indoctrination, conformity of thought, amoral psychology, and twisted logic in gov't and corporate culture is blatant.

@warped I don't understand these references, would you mind explaining them more? - Marx ist academia and pop culture.

If you're not familiar with public education in the US, basically in recent decades most schools, colleges, and universities have implemented an increasingly left leaning curriculum lacking both fundamental learning and traditional values. Too many students are passed through deficient in not only basic reading, writing, math, and critical thinking skills but also self discipline, social skills, and responsibility. 

Violence, gangs, drugs, crime, greed, promiscuity, disregard for laws and rights of others, personal glorification and entitlement are frequently glorified in the music, entertainment, and social media referred to as popular culture.

@warped Thanks for explaining, I am UK based so the education system is different and my mind was boggling at the thought of Marx ist schools in America especially having gone through the McCarthy era! But I understand what you mean.

Another negative influence i would have thought is management culture which encourages hierarchical structures, social climbing, materialism, competitiveness, etc, but also a lack of true responsibility, leadership skills, community spirit, and seems to foster neglect and casualness to people's worth and potential. This is something we have inherited in the UK. I read that it was a creation of the very rich /upper class in order to occupy and sedate a growing middle class. Many of the roles are meaningless.

Or, any ideology, insideously absorbed, leading to people dismissing others who don't look (or talk) like them.  Or hating, outright.

No matter what's going on, in society, my hope is that some people are digging deep, inspired by whomever was good and loving toward them.  That some people are building bridges, seeking common understanding, with others who hold very different views.

I agree there are increasingly more "people who were never taught to do right or be good," much of it attributable to the comments above. But I also think many "good people" have become complacent and/or intimidated and are less likely to perform their civic duties. We are losing moral ground because too many good people are doing nothing. I would like to think a tipping point is possible when a critical mass can see it, but I don't know how much more out of whack things can get before it's irreparable.

@elsa I absolutely agree. It has progressed far beyond human intervention.

I see it as a lack of love. If you feel love in your heart you instinctively feel the urge to do good, but when you don't, everything is tinged with hate, comes out as destructiveness. Too many people don't believe in the existence of love, you could also say life... to me they are the same force. There's a reason, they never encountered it, why should they know. Then there is death, we are fixated on death yet refuse to acknowledge its presence. When I interact with anyone or anything I try to question, is the source of this life or death? I try to focus on life/love but I acknowledge my own struggle with these forces and that of others. I wonder if any other Pluto people on here operate like this?

At the current time, everything presented is dark and twisted.  Love is conditional, shallow, and fleeting. Not worth wasting your time one. No one can be trusted.

Media is very different than when I was young. I'm acutely aware of this because my husband and I watched various shows when we were together as teenagers.

No one welcomed us to their vagina.

And this:

It's gross. Can you see the symbolism?

This stuff is horrifying. Mortifying.

As a woman, I guess you're a vagina host.  You get to invite people in?  

You cannot be inundated with stuff like this, elaborately produced, hitting all your senses and not be changed... well, ruined.  No one wants to think they are brainwashed but how can you watch stuff like this an not be?

It used to be a problem - I felt men were dating my hair and an illusion of who I was.  Today, they'd just be visiting my vagina.  Great!

It's hard to believe it could get worse but I'm sure it can and it will.  Further, it's like the only pot on the stove so we eat from it, poison.

I believe the power that use to belong to the family, to teach and shape children, has been given to the government, the schools and entertainment removed link Boundaries has become a bad word. Having boundaries for behavior and treating others and yourself with respect and decency was taught in the family. The family unit is now under attack. The family unit (for the most part) had the child's best interest in mind, whereas, these other entities do not. They simply want a population that has no boundaries or self-respect, it makes the population easier to control, easier to profit from and easier to manipulate.

@kvk I believe your links are being removed because you are a new user... sorry. I just figured this out.

Edit to add - it's spam control, built into the forum software.

@elsa I have been fortunate enough to have been reading your blog for probably close to 14 years. I just don't comment (I'm more intake than output most times) much and had another username before. Anyway, there wasn't a link, it was a forward slash and the word media. I seem to have issues when I use my phone rather than a computer.

@kvk Yes, I know you're not new. That's why this has baffled me. But then I saw your post count.

As for what you posted, when this happens, all I can see is "link removed". I can't even see what it was.

@kvk I see this happening too but I also acknowledge that the “nuclear family” was also a product of social engineering. I think the power has just shifted from the church to..something else. Actually the most natural way for people to organize themselves is by tribal unit. Without social engineering that’s what people do.
