Why does it seem the longer we live, the crasser the world around us becomes? Language degrades into cursing every other word and sportsmanship on the basketball court, gridiron and baseball diamond become all about who can be the loudest, and not who is really the best team player.
The greatest crevasse in the modern world of crass is found in the entertainment business. Decades ago, we had quieter movies and songs and other Art that challenged our thinking and emotion; while today, we are “bonked” over the head with obviousness and bad taste and the resurrection of outright misogyny masquerading as a music video. Nothing is left to imagination. It’s all obvious, bad taste.
