No matter what happens, society will always be the same, never better, never worse.
But on the other hand, I, because of my beliefs, feel society is getting worse. It's just things like ideals, behavior, basically moral values, that have gone down hill. Personally, I partially blame the media for this generation's bad character traits/habits. And another thing I blame, and I don't want to insult anyone by saying this, are (some) parents. There are a lot more people these days that don't raise their kid/s right. Then there's the whole issue with technology, I mean, yeah, it's great that are lives are a little more cozy, but what about our health. We've (some not at) become lazier, which leads to obesity and etc. Less responsible with our objects and ourselves. More ignorant, despite our greater access to knowledge, and much more. I'll just stop here.
This is basically how I perceive the world right now based on my knowledge, experience, observation and such. Because my perception is obviously different, there's no garantee that my, or anyone else's point-of-view is correct. With that said (well, typed), I think it's safe to say that society is not changing, just its situations. But depending on peoples' ideals, some make the world better, and some make it worse.
