Immoral youth frequently use violence, lack of social education undermines dignity of the elderly

Post-90s generation [youth] cause trouble at elderly resting/nursing home, even beating up old people, human flesh search them!

The young man in blue kicked the thin old man and said: “Then how did you find me?”

The thin old man: “Tonight I’m going to your father’s.”

The young man in blue throws yet another kick: “You go then!”

The thin old man goes back into the room… comes back out with something that can’t be seen clearly in his hand.

The young man in blue says: “Hit me! As long as you dare to!”

At this moment out rushes a heavier old man, who viciously pushes the young man in blue and angrily shouts: “You’re out of line now! [gone too far, out of control]”

Then the 4 of them people began blah, blah, blah…. Blah, blah, blah.

The heavy old man: “You truly are out of line!”

Vaguely hear the thin old man in the back saying to the other one: “You be rude again, you be rude again!”

Can hear the heavy old man say the words “Instead of learning from the good……”

The rest can’t be heard clearly… the scene was a little chaotic, and I’m not sure who said “come, let’s fight and see.” The heavy old man walks down the steps, points at the young man in blue, “come, come, come, come down here and fight.” The two of them circle each other once but don’t fight. The heavy old man then walks up the steps, says to the other young man: “Tone/attitude! (I think it was that word)” The young man says: “Mind your own business!” Then the heavy old man replies with something that can’t be heard clearly, and the young man says: “Don’t fucking lecture me!” The heavy old man then “pia!” slaps him. The young man in black, not to be outdone, hits back and the two of them began to fight. The people around them: “Enough, enough…” (During the fight, the heavy old man falls from the top of the steps directly down onto the ground below, this part is truly heartbreaking, sigh~)”

The lack of social morality education

Netizen “yuman0102” pointed out: we exaggerate the effect of school moral education too much, and ignore the importance of social moral education. The TV and the Internet are flooded with violent content, and both have caused the moral education problems among the young generation.

Comments from Youku:


Haven’t even grown pubic hair yet and already dare to mess with grandpa! Truly overestimating oneself/being reckless! Just what kind of education are kids receiving these days? So bad-tempered, and parents don’t discipline them?


Simply lowlifes and scumbags. When talking about this kind of people, the first ones to be blamed should be the parents who didn’t educate them well! Do these people treat their own parents like this? Well, this kind of people can only be called animals. Don’t know where their school education went! Went it into a dog’s stomach [didn’t learn well at school]! Just cursing them makes my mouth feel dirty.


Two retards beating up the elderly, as if they’re so NB. I wanna say, the one who shot this video is also a garbage.


Hehe, I am post-90s, and after watching this video I think all you guys who say post-90s this and that all day long are those who have accomplished nothing in life and log online to attack other people to gain a sense of self-righteousness and nobility. This video shows the moral corruption of a few individuals, and is definitely not the true reflection of all post-90s. Even though I’m not that kind of noble post-90s, but the common sense of respecting the elderly and loving the young is something I think the vast majority of people understand!


Chinese education is no good… there’s nothing to say. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be like this. Look at those foreign countries, would this kind of thing ever happen there?


So way out of line, even daring to hit old people. Society nowadays has no sense of respecting the old and loving the young. Guangzhou child gets hit by car, bystanders indifferent, now beating up the elderly. I really don’t know what use there is to only studying math, physics, and chemistry without improving human character. Nowadays, the whole society’s collective character is being twisted and warped. Everybody knows what the problem is, but still firmly fix their eyes on money!


People have provided the address online, so I’ll go beat him up during Qingming Festival. I know beating him up is breaking the law, that there’s police, that it isn’t my place, but I want to.


Just one look and you can tell have no future, are scumbags, the shame of society… Having interacted with people so much, I prefer dogs. Why do I say this? Because dogs will always be dogs, but humans sometimes are not human.


You can all stop spouting off now. They’ve already peacefully settled the matter with the old men, so no need to keep spouting off about it. Go screw them somehow if you’ve got what it takes, otherwise just go home and sleep [give it a rest].

河南a最棒:(responding to above)

Finally, someone who is a little smart. Those who JJYY [唧唧歪歪 ji ji wai wai always gossiping and commenting] all day, making themselves sound so righteous, so angry, about how much they want to do something about it, what exactly can you do? Nothing but tapping a few words on the internet? Go wash yourselves and go to sleep, fengqing.
