A person's worth nowadyas seems to be judged according to social status and material
possessions. The old-fashioned

values, such as honor, kindness and trust, no longer seem

important. To what degree do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Peoples attitudes towards moral principles have been changed in this highly
competitive age. The long-cherished traditional virtues like kindness, trust are no longer
emphasized. Instead, achieving high social status and accumulating great material wealth turn
to be the life-long pursuit of a large number of people. I am going to analyze the adversity
brought by this moral corruption on the society and family.

Undoubtedly, the prevalent money-oriented mentality has exerted detrimental impacts

on industries and the society as well. It is a commonplace that some enterprises adopt
immoral or even illegal means to make profits in a short time. An extreme example is the
scandal of poisonous yogurt inChinarecently. The edible gelatin, one important ingredient of
yogurt, is substituted with toxic one for industrial use so as to decrease the costs. By doing
this, those manufacturers seemingly accumulate their fortune in a shorter time than their
counterparts do; however, they are actually jeopardizing the interests of their own and the
entire industry as well in that customers will stop purchasing this sort of products.
As for individuals, overemphasis on wealth and fame alienates people from their
friends, neighbors and even family members. Overworking for long time, one can hardly
spare any time and energy to be with his family and friends, not alone notice who lives nextdoor. More disturbingly, the whole society now is suffering from the loss of trust brought by
overly pursuing fame and money. Few people would offer their helping hands to others in
need as they were either cheated by someone who took advantage of their kindness or are
acquainted with this sort of stories from media coverage.
Given that the overemphasis on individual material wealth and social status has
caused sever social problems, it is imperative to revitalize the traditional virtues. Of course,
the government and media are supposed to play an active role in this campaign.
