How F-cked Up is Our Society?

It's not really a question of banning certain words, because outside of radio and television one can use any words a person wants in expressing him or herself; but can you really take seriously people who are repeatedly incapable of uttering more than two sentences in a row without inserting "fuck" or "shit?" Are those words meant to impress the listener with the eloquence of the speaker--or perhaps his autonomy?

And do those words, used repeatedly in a monologue or in a simple conversation, actually add emphasis, nuance or meaning, or do they merely reveal the vacuousness of the speakers, as in this video?

Our western society is definitely screwed up but if not for the screwed up people in it our society wouldn't be so bad today.

"The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does.

They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness.

These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted."

- Aldous Huxley

These days, those two words usually (not always) have no true meaning within the context of what is being said other than to reveal a good deal about the speaker's or writer's inability to express himself clearly.

In a sense, their incessant, pointless use reveals the degradation of our educational (and, perhaps, moral) system. The societal influences, previously thought of as tasteless and vulgar who promoted the use of this language are now, unfortunately, considered acceptable by many.

There can be a time and a place for any word or phrase, but overuse of the vulgar is demeaning to the speaker or writer and shows no respect for his audience.

It appears that you are one of those educationally challenged people who are unable to express themselves rationally to whom the other two were referring.

Alas, you were probably incarcerated for eight years or fewer in a government run public school.

Too much emphasis on the words that people use to describe whats going on in this world. So What !!!! The message is more important than the words. People hung up on the words have a control issue problem.
