: I agree entirely. Good and evil are completely relative. In a society of Saints, failing to say hello might be considered criminal. We've devoted so much time in ending crime, yet it persists. Why is this so? It's because society continues to reinvent and modify what it considers acceptable behaviour.

"Things aren't the way they used to be, but then again, they never were."

Reactionists have a way of exaulting and romanticising the past as if it was such a glorious time of prosperity. Sure, the 50's were a very prosperous decade (low unemployment, low divorce rate, etc.), but many things were repressed, like sexual expression. There was much more intolerance then, than there is today. Racism was also very prevalent. Things weren't necessarily better in the past. We've solved some problems, but created new ones. Thems the breaks I guess.
