    Are social ethic disppearing from our culture?

    Yes, people are no longer as Tolerant, Considerate or Respectful towards others.

    robbur says: Society doesn't seem to have respect for each other any more. In the cities, it's all about making money and owning a great big McMansion. We move to a small village in West Gippsland, because we were tired of the soullessness of Melbourne. Boy, what a difference. The people here are community-minded and work hard to keep the various government authorities from closing our hospital, swimming pool and library. The children are friendly and polite and we have very little grafitti and only tourist drop litter. We wouldn't go back to the city for quids.

    888shelley says: yes i do agree that most people have little respect for others. country towns are a lot better. we have a neighbour who we wish would go back to victoria (ballarat), he is the most ignorant and disrespectful person i have ever come across! while we were overseas he entered our backyard and cut down most of our trees, trashed plants and pots in my garden and then lied to the police (who did nothing about this man).
    travel to asia where 90% of people show true respect for others

    flyingace says: Hi 888shelley, thanks for answer my topic. Your neighbour was not very nice person and you should put up cameras up outside and next time you go away it can record your neighbour next time he comes into your backyard and then you will have proof to charge him.

    888shelley says: we had 2 witnesses, my daughter and a friend of ours who had keys to come in and check on our yard, feed our fish etc,.....both spoke to him and told him not to interfere with plants/garden/other trees etc, but he lied to them saying we told him he could do it. the original conversation was with his wife who asked if they could TRIM 3 trees so she had sun on her washing line. yesterday he abused my husband and said the police just laughed and wouldn't charge him, also our landlord wouldn't even stick up for us (we have lived in this house for12 years). we have been here since before his house was built and have seen 3 owners live there none particularly nice and all from interstate.

    flyingace says: hi 888shelley, I am amazed the police wouldn't arrest him because its called transpassing and you could sue him by taking him to small court if you want yo go there.

    frank says: We moved out of the city years ago, so the kids could get some room to grow & develop some of the skills I had when growing up. We live in a great community.
    Apart from the distance to get to the shops,lack of mdeical services & all the mod cons, like water & gas, (our water comes from the sky or underground). We would not go back for quids. Most people know each other at least by sight and crime is committed by out of towners mainly. As for social Ethics yes it is /has dissapeared from a lot of areas of society. It is a shame but that seems to be progress & soft laws & parenting has a lot to do with it.

    greg60 says: I moved into a regional town over 20 years ago and it was great. But as the town grew into a small city and people became alienated from one another there was a marked increase in the incidences of crime and vandalism. I am not suggesting that city living is a cause of crime but surely it is a catalyst.

    Jennyd says: Yes. We've forgotten what our laws etc are based on - the Bible , our makers instruction manual for getting the most and best of of life. People want to dictate their own life path and destiny. Doing things for No. 1 (self) often leaves others out of the picture thus what we see happening.
    We need to get back in touch with God and enjoy the full abundant life He offers and then loving/serving/giving to others will be on the adgenda again with all the benefits those things bring. How many people have experienced how much better it is to give than receive? It's in the giving that we really receive.
