Do We, Do You, Does Society Still Care …. Enough … ?

This is Rory’s 24 hour Blog Question this week

Do we still care enough for people in today’s society or have we become an uncaring society only looking out for ourselves?’

I find it sad that the majority of the younger generation seem to care little for their elders and other people. Call me an old fuddy duddy if you like, but I was brought up to respect other people, to be polite and considerate towards others. It is rare to see that today.
From what we’ve seen with the visitors to our town since Covid hit, everyone is looking out for themselves with no regard for others, let alone the residents here. They don’t live here, so why should they care about their surroundings and other people who do?
However, do Hubby and I fall into that category now as we look out for ourselves, mainly because nobody else will.

I genuinely care about other people. I can’t help it, it’s in my nature, and I am still likely to show concern to a stranger in the street if they seem in distress.
The news is full of stabbings and assault, murder and vandalism. Why?????
Society is going to hell IMO.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Huge gap between the generations and today’s generation or rather society have become selfish and self centered,

    Yep. I see it on this side of the Atlantic too.

  3. It is sad. Even politeness is missing these days.

  4. Hey Di, it is not just restricted to one generation over another , it is sadly part and parcel of a global society now to look after themselves, almsot a case of survival. No, l offer no defense for rudeness, fakeness and a lack of genuine authenticity from people – people have become selfish and self centred and more so in the last 18 months – l have seen it more so here in this town since l moved here and perhaps that is because l am NOW in a town as opposed to pre-july of last year when l was in a small village.

    • You’re right of course. I’ve lived in a few villages and it’s a different ball game. On the boat, the community was wonderful, and here the community look out for each other, even more so because most of the residents on our estate are elderly. Visitors are another kettle of fish

      • I think the smaller the community the tighter knit they are, the moment communities start to widen and take in different members then that closeness dilutes down and eventually whilst the community is marginally there, it’s no longer just a close knit group, but a society of individual tastes and personalities, therefore the interewoven aspect of community becomes lost.

        But even here we see a widening community breaking Di – that is because people are fast becoming overwhelmed with too much data at once – so a broad blogging society breaks up into small minority community’s.
