Generally I speak with manners, I don't really feel socially obliged.

I doubt "social responsibility" is a thing.

I have no social responsibility. I am not responsible for your actions. I am not responsible for the actions of the herd. I do not have a responsibility to make sure that you're not killing yourself.

Manners, courtesy, politeness, and formality are all lubricants that prevent two or more of what are, at base, selfish and homicidal entities, from failing to function as a civilization.

I believe that manners do exist, in bigger quantities then some might think. Most people just focus on the bad, and who can really blame them when that's literally all that is generally portraid in media and the like. We have bad shit forced down our throats day and night, and bad news is everywhere you look.

But that is because people choose to focus on it. There is plenty of good left in the world.

I dont think that's what the OP meant? i think he more meant would you help someone in danger or being attacked or raped or robed or that is hurt or lost or their car broke down or etc?

second part i agree on.

I agree with this. I currently live in a bit of a rough "ghetto-ish"/poor people sort of area. With the repuation of broke people, unemployed people, druggies and alcho's, bogans, etc but people are still polite.
Like i was at the pub the other night and there are alot of the rougher sort of crowd that go there but people are still friendly and polite as far as common courtesy and being civilized. Not being violent or not being rude.
Plus i still see things such as people letting you turn out on the street so you dont get stuck in traffic when its jammed up or people giving up a seat on a bus or those sorts of things.

It's only really some young rebelious people or just actual scum bags that lack that way of thinking, people who are self centered and selfish and have no conscience.
Alot of poor and rough looking people still have respect and decency even though you might not expect that.

I cant speak for highly educated and rich people though lol. But i know these days the highly educated are often the SJW types.
