Do you think there is a slow insidious deterioration of society's values?

If look back in history, in every era, intelligence and knowledge are viewed as good things. Now...take a look at the black eyed peas where they chant "Get Stupid!". And this is just an example. I think most kids these days don't realize the importance of knowledge until well after high school. Thoughts?

Do most kids ever recognize the importance of knowledge? There will always be stratification in society but now more education does not always equal a bigger paycheck. Many kids look for easier ways to make money; that's their sole focus.

No I do not think there is a deterioration of society's values now or in the past. I do think they change and evolve however. But I am afraid that society today does not "value" our shared (with all forms of life) planet enough to prevent a coming reckoning in terms of climate change, mass species extinctions (going on at record pace as I write this), and shortages of resources. Perhaps that is due in part to those who do not think science or knowledge in general have much value. But I doubt that. It's just part of the human condition to ignore what we do not want to see.

The world's going to hell in a handbasket.

R3, So I am worried about climate change and I do recycle. What can I do that doesn't cost a ton of money, besides worry about the future?

I think there is. Feels like no one cares about right and wrong. From the top to the bottom.
