Re: Where have manners and respect gone?
The rise and prominence of Pop culture have done much to promote decay and distention in our culture. The love of money has fostered a value and race for "who can be the most outrageous, the most vulgar, thereby generating more clicks and more revenue. IE: Miley Cyrus, Michael Jackson, Kapernick, Madonna, Kathy Griffin and yes even Trump makes ready with some of the same techniques. Some have always placed more value in celebrity status, I could simply not care less. Mourning over a celeb is like mourning a marketing strategy.
Manners have always been part of our "individual personal values". I recognize, value and try to acknowledge good manners. Those that employ them stand out to me and deserve my respect. Several members here on this board have heard this directly from me. Why? Because its a dying value in our society. A trait becoming quit rare.
