The Vulgarization of America and most other places.

We used to live in a polite society.
Regardless of economic class, we said please and thank you.
Swearing was reserved to behind closed doors or bars.
We had at least some respect for our elders.
Debates were conducted with a degree of professionalism and politeness.
People cleaned up if they made a mess.
Doors were open.
There were few lewd displays ....

It's not that things were perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But there was at least some structure, order to the way people lived, and a code of public conduct. There was a sense of what was acceptable and not acceptable.
