The world is in constant change with growing inequality and access. When you watch the news, you are confronted with national disasters, wars/conflicts, waves of refugees and other crimes against humanity. At a national level, many countries have a changing political landscape that has seen a rise in fundamentalist nationalist parties leading to a discourse of 'problematic immigrants'. We also witness the decline of democratic ideals and the ethos of supporting people in society as politicians are influenced by capitalist ideals and individual gain. In essence, the world appears to be becoming meaner, with little understanding shown to others. When did values change?
