Possibly for you, but I see a different 'picture' where people do care about their job performance, as that ties directly to their personal survival. Generalizing behaviour patterns to the many because of the few is irresponsible.

Nice verbiage. Too bad it's all rhetoric, lacking substance.

Manners can be taught, they're not genetically coded into the 'rich and famous'. So can proper behaviour. Many in the U.S. have pulled themselves up from nothing into 'high society'. Maybe your country is different, but don't make sweeping statements about all countries simply because of defects in your own.
