Lizzie, you know you just sounded like an old timer on one of those "kids today, it wasn't like that when I was a gel." tirades, right?
Culture changes whether we like it or not. Yes, we can fight tooth and nail to try and stop it, and sometimes we'll win, sometimes we'll lose. And there are people who are fight here, for instance everyone who is trying to over the licencing laws so that we can play music more freely. What you are doing, is spouting off a load of hot air. In fact, I'd liken you more to the christian who preaches hate in the name of Jesus and ruins the image of those who actually follow the religion properly.
"We've lost more than we'll ever know"
I bet any culture can claim that, because things are lost and gained all the time practically everywhere.
