Our changing world...

Our world is changing and so are our morals, our beliefs and the expectations we may have of others...
This makes me sad and confused sometimes.. Some people argue that these changes mean evolution but I often question whether evolution is always a good thing...after all, some of the most powerful empires in history have fallen due to "evolution" gone wrong (i.e. the Roman Empire)...
What used to be "wrong" is now "normal" or just so widely accepted that it becomes reality...
As a conservative I often struggle with our changing world and always fear what will be of our society if the norms keep changing for the worse...
In my opinion, human dignity is at its lowest and the internet has become a double edge sword...
I was recently cyber bullied through a Facebook group, where I was condemned for stating an opinion on a sensitive subject... I won't go into detail as to what the subject was, but the bullying really shocked me and disillusioned me just a little more about cyber friendships and online forums.  Apparently being a conservative is wrong nowadays; stating a belief which is incongruent with today's liberalism is a sin for which you deserve to be attacked...
The truth is, this American society isn't invulnerable... on the contrary, it's a weak society that continues to decay with the passing of time... People have no self respect, no compassion and no limits...This excessive liberalism needs to stop and people need to realize that some things will always be "wrong"...
I need to be able to teach my kids about a life of dignity, self-respect and high moral standards...
