To clarify what would mean cruel for my points:
cruel - an attitude that is aggressive, malevolent, manifests through wish to see others suffer, or simply the wish of causing pain to any living creature;
To my mind, people are becoming crueler due to a set of reasons:
Media influence, children are exposed to violent acts from earlier ages which tend to develop into aggressivity problems, all because due to violent shows, or violent games which their parents allow them to play, or simply are exposed daily to violent scenes and start believing that that's the good way to go.
And of course, this leads to people at maturity being cruel, because they do not care if the other person is hurt.
Secondly, because the amount of hatred between individuals is growing. People started to become easily angered by small events, even if they are not frequently, and because of the stress, they tend to take revenge, and are pretty cruel by their methods, and wish to see pain if a person upsets them.
The lack of education also constitutes a reason why the people are crueler. They are not educated at home or in schools of good manners and a socially positive attitude, and tend to act however they like, regardless if it is wrong or right.
The last but not least, the simple fact that people are indifferent about everything constitutes a factor.
They do not care whether the others suffer or not, all they care about is themselves, and would not stop in their way to obtain whatever they want, despite hurting others in the process.
There is a long list to be made, but those tend to be the most important. At least from my point of view.
On a side note, Theone, please, make your posts clear and easy to understand, and avoid using sophisticated vocabulary as not everyone on the forum is English literate enough to understand all of the words.
I am not speaking about myself, but there may as well be people which experience problems in comprehending your post.
