    So, how about it? Are we becoming more selfish? Is this lashing out like depicted in the story a result of people feeling like they are being too tightly controlled? What say you?
    I think it's a case of looking at the past through rose colored glasses combined with 24/7 of reporting everything nowadays. People are the same as they always have been. There have always been piles of self centered jerks, nothing has changed.

Never have and never will.
    I have, but won't anymore. Not because it was a mad dash or violent. I just don't like crowds and usually all the good stuff is gone in a flash anyways.
