sure haven't: Human nature is human nature. No matter how many feel-good-but-ultimately-useless "stop x" campaigns you throw at it.
Active introvert: In a hundred years, I envision a world were people are locked up in small rooms. We have no physical interaction with others for fear of being bully, disrespected, offended or placed in any other discomfort. All interaction will be done by video after it has been screened by the government to "protect us".
ohokyeah: Didn't read TFA but exactly when did people think humans were more compassionate in the past? Was it when we owned slaves of typically different races or castes than ourselves? When we had serfs? When we had indentured servitude? When women were viewed as property? How about when we had constant conquest for new territory in the name of God and king? How about forced conversions of native peoples to Christianity?I'm sure I could think of lots more examples of a group of people being jerks, but I think I've given enough examples. Society is neither compassionate nor dispassionate as it's always been. If anything we as a species are prone to cliquishness and punishing those that aren't "in" with us. A recent president in the US that inelequently stated "you're either with us or you are with the terrorists"?
iheartscotch: I've got a crazy idea; maybe someone should punch Gordon Ramsey in the face every time he yells at someone. Either, he will eventually quit, or he'll loose the tv show spot because his face looks like it had a close encounter of the shop grinder kind.
