Some people, yes.<br />
How many or what proportion? No way of knowing.<br />
But one thing I feel clear on; guesses about the causes and motivations for the behaviour of stranger in public may often be wrong.<br />
The people I regard as decent <br />
are those I know have made choices to support the quality of well being of life <br />
in themselves and others, <br />
usually doing so in actions, <br />
sustained over long periods of time with commitment and dedication.<br />
Decency has nothing to do with superficial appearances.
