We are seeing more of this kind of behavior because of the media being more pravalent and only reporting this sort of content, not because it is more rampant. Although things have changed as you mentioned with commercialism, sex is used to market everything. That didn't used to be the case, you're right about that (I think this Advil liqui-gels commercial was implying I could pick up chicks by using it...). The thinking that morals are changing is complete and utter bullshit in my opinion. Sure, more things have become acceptable that you may or may not agree with. But the basic morals are changing? Like what? We believe killing is right? We think drugs are great? No. That isn't true. Oh boy, a kid brought drugs to school. Let's report that. Who cares about real news? Here's a thought: maybe the kid really did think it was a oregano. What a fucking concept. This rant isn't really directed at you weeve, but I just get sick and tired of being bombarded with all this "morals are on a downward spiral" crap.
