What do you think of today society?

I think now people live in a society of too much freedom.  I think we need more rules. Don't you agreed?

I can't speak for the whole society in general, but the % of dumb & spoiled kids these days coming out of high school is increasing by the year. That's a fact.

that's been a fact since school first existed. I think society has problems (something just arn't the way they should be.. the way common sense would have them be), but to me, whatever.

It seems to me that people have developed a "me, me, me" attitude and there aren't a whole lot of people who care about others anymore. Don't get me wrong, there are some, but not many compared to the number of our population. The more people in an area, the less they seem to care.

I think that people seem to have forgotten what the important things in life are.

I totally agree. If this recession has taught all of us anything, it has taught us all that religion, family and friends are most important in life. Money and other material things are only temporary. Your faith, family and friends will always be there no matter what your economic situation is or becomes.

Completely.
We need a lot more rules. WAY more rules.
Personally, I'd like to have someone with direct authority over me, guiding me through all the important steps in life. Preferably someone on a government payroll.

To me, 1984 isn't so much a warning of what could one day befall society, but rather a useful guide on how government can best bring order to the masses.
Thankfully, it would appear that comrade Obama has been dutifully studying the tips President Bush left behind for him.
I can't wait until I have speaker in my room to tell me what to think, like in North Korea. Truly, freedom is overrated.

I totally agree. People Just don't care what they say or do now days.

No, we don't need more rules.  We merely need people to continue recognizing their stake and influence in the world.

Compared to what?  People's attitudes towards others throughout history?

Where were the hundreds of international charities raising millions upon millions of dollars a few centuries ago?  Where were the international peace organizations working to end civil wars and war in general around the world?  Where were the international human rights organizations fighting to end genocide, war-rape, slavery, prisoner mistreatment, etc. etc.?  Where were the multiple local charities?  Where were the homeless shelters?  Where were the food drives?  Where were the millions of medical specialists struggling to find cures and treatments for some of the worst diseases (and being very successful)?  So on and so forth.

Why do people pretend we haven't progressed?  It may not be enough, but we're certainly working our way forward in more ways than one...and frankly we're doing so at an astounding rate.  Be more positive.

I'm going to take everything you said as though you were being sarcastic, because if you actually feel that way, that's scary.

Not enough responsibility for ones actions. People want to blame others when things go wrong.

I don't understand why some people like to blame most of the faults of society on kids, especially those in or out of high school.  If the person is dumb why isn't fault found with the teachers or even the school system?  If the child is spoiled why isn't the parent blames for their upbringing?  You can't speak for the whole society, but you can speak for the "% of dumb & spoiled kids"?  
In my opinion, the fault doesn't lie with lack of rules or dumb and spoiled kids.  All the faults lie with people just being people.

I think its over populated with ungrateful children. And adults teaching them the era of the WRONG ways.

Our society and civilization are rapidly declining. As our world crumbles, most sit idly by at making no effort to change this downward trend. Perhaps, living in a state where *bleep* is still legal has influenced my opinion.

People have been saying this for a very, very long time, all while ignoring the great progress we've made and the obvious positive direction we've taken on a number of issues.
