Simple, country folk can have as good of manners as a refined person who lives in the city. What you're
asking is why are they so vulgar and jaded now, since it seems they've gotten the "best of everything".
Perhaps they're sick of shit and don't give a good gotdamb who knows? Only way to know is to ask the people
whose life experience is this.
Also, people know a little differently now. It's way later in time and the veil has long been ripped from the face.
You're not going to see that display of innocence by and large--that's the nature of things and time wearing on.
People also don't do a whole lot of things like they used to way back when.
see what I mean by perspective? This is a class/caste issue, not a race issue.
btw--got any links-how did you arrive at your conclusions?
