People behaving badly - what's going on?!

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

25-01-2024 • 47 mins

I bet if you took a random poll, many would say people’s general behaviour has  deteriorated. - a lot.

And you can witness this just about anywhere.  On the street with strangers, shopping in a store, when you’re driving – all kinds of rude behaviour.  And you see it with politicians, corporate leaders, celebrities.  And let’s not even get into social media.

The world seems less welcoming. .. even dangerous.

What’s happened to good manners, politeness, and behaving respectfully towards others?

We explore the question of bad behaviour,  what it means, and what could be behind it.
