Christians who say morality in the US is on the decline?

when the the golden age of 'morality?' When African-Americans were 'separate but equal' and lynchings were common? When poor people and non-white people could be hauled off and sterilized? When slavery was legal? When crime was far more rampant than today in the late 1800s and 1930s? When... show more when the the golden age of 'morality?' When African-Americans were 'separate but equal' and lynchings were common? When poor people and non-white people could be hauled off and sterilized? When slavery was legal? When crime was far more rampant than today in the late 1800s and 1930s? When corporations had no responsibility to address workers' safety, nor obligation to compensate families when workers died because of owners' negligence? When men were free to commit any act of domestic violence, and the wife was blamed if she spoke up? When rape was seen as the woman's fault? When it was okay to use racial slurs? When it was okay to pay people less based solely on the tone of their skin?

Or does the illusionary 'golden age' so many of you refer to only exist on Little House on the Prairie and Leave it to Beaver?
Update: we are constantly told that the current day is so much worse than two or three generations ago. I'm wondering when these better days were.
