soexcited123 :  I think that when the Oxford Dictionary added “YOLO” in 2016 that was it for society. We’re all officially doomed.

People have ‘dumbed down’ in some ways and smartened up in other ways.

I think people are more disrespectful openly these days behind the guise of “I tell it like it is”.
