for someone who is at the park as much as CUatDL to have this perspective... it should be taken seriously.Even with that, I still belive that most people are basically good, many are even kind. Just need a way to work around the ones who are not.
The problem is we don't see the "them" as real people. Only we are the real people. When we start to see ourselves as the constant target of rudeness and general social illness, then we place ourselves in a victim/holier-than-thou role. The reality is that if we get angry over little things like a spot in a parade or a five person difference in line, it's not that society is become more rude, its that we are becoming more angry.
So... take up yoga or something.
