So any comparison made about todays generation and the generations of yesteryear can't be fully appreciated unless you were there. It's very easy to say "well, it's not so bad" without a full frame of reference. Were other generations prone to stupidity? You betcha. Fact remains that it's been on a downward sliding scale for many years now - which spells out quite clearly, why it is likely worse now than ever before.
But like I said, you never really know until you're out there amongst it.
