Same as it ever was.
"The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for
authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place
of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their
households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They
contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties
at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."
Plato quoting Socrates, the origin is contested. The point is, for as long as humanity has existed a few constants have remained.
Common Sense, whatever that means, never existed.
Personal responsibility has never existed (Hence law).
The list goes on.
The more we change, the more we stay the same.
