The anything goes attitude

I am not all that old, but old enough to have noticed that the general attitude of the people in the US is more of an "anything goes" type attitude. I'm not saying it's a bad thing but I can see where it could lead to problems for future generations. I think it's encouraging a lack of self-discipline. People my age and younger don't seem to have a lot of work ethic and I'm stunned over how many people I know living off assistance and they see nothing wrong with it. Maybe there is nothing wrong with it. I just don't know. I feel as though somewhere there needs to be some sort of rules and guidelines but maybe my thoughts are old-fashioned and the new "free living lifestyle" is really what it is all about. I hope this makes sense.
