It means that our world, our country, or our community, disregards the needs of others and the feelings of others. Decency can be understood to mean, "Treating---Others---Right" or
For example, if you visited America, and you stood in some public place, crying and were obviously upset, I might ignore you, as might all other people, who did not care at all about your obvious anxiety and pain. That would mean that I and others had "lost" our Sense---of---Decency.
However, if I or others possessed a Sense--of--Decency, we might walk up to you and say something like; "Miss? Are you okay? Can I help?"
It might be that you merely missed a bus. It might also be that your money, purse, and ID cares were all missing. In which case, I might be moved to offer to sit down with you, buy you food and drink, and help you plan on a specific course of action. That would be the "Decent" to do.
That's a brief but general example.
Thank you! I got it!
Do you think decency is losing over past years ?
