    I feel like over time it has gone down a slippery slope at alarming rates.

    70 yrs. ago it was uncalled for to disrespect peopep older than you. Now it is encourage.

    Sad!

    I suspect that it goes hand in hand with respecting this nation and its founding principles. It isn't just our elders that today's youth disrespect, but it seems to be pretty much everything of enduring value. I do think, though, that the pendulum may be in the process of swinging back again....

    I give everyone a certain base level of respect, unless/until they demonstrate that they don't deserve it. Others will, over time, gain an increased level of my respect, based on their actions.

    Age has absolutely nothing to do with it, however. I don't accord increased respect to a person simply because s/he is older....length of time spent alive is irrelevant. That base level of respect for all is automatic, and anything more is earned via behavior/actions.
