A person's worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem important. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

It is argued that social status and property define the place of the person in the world whereas, the values like kindness and faith, are lost their importance, nowadays. I totally agree with
this
statement due to the following reasons which discuss in the forthcoming paragraphs.
Firstly
, the community becomes materialistic which means they give more importance to non-living things . It not only changes their lifestyle but
also
losses their simplicity and innocence.
For example
, according to a recent survey shows 96% of the public go for the money
instead
of making good relations with
others
,
this
trend reckons that
people
are becoming self-centred and they want just their happiness rather than
others
well being.
Moreover
, even children are
also
influenced by it, they
also
showcase their belongings in front of
others
, it is just because of society's pressure.
Secondly
,
people
blindly follow western
culture
even their own
culture
is rich with moral values but, they just want to show their wealth to
others
.
Therefore
,
people
cut off from their roots like tradition and
culture
.
For instance
, in India,
people
use to wear western clothes even on special occasions like cultural festivals. No doubt, clothing is their choice but, if
people
don't use to wear traditional clothes and celebrate the function
then
they lost their
culture
. In conclusion,
although
some crowd use old values to b a good person in society, many folks live only for money and show off in front of
others
to maintain their status in society.
