    moral decay of contemporary society.

    Dear All,

    Can you please say the sentence below in a different way but with the same meaning. I don't understand the words with underline even I already looked up them in a dictionary.

    It's just another sign of the moral decay of contemporary society.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's another example of how people today don't care about right and wrong/behaving in a way that shows good moral character.

    It's just another sign of how corrupt and unethical contemporary society is.

    I'd look up the words in the dictionary again. You might be confused by the word "decay" because it has two senses - maybe three. This word has an abstract sense and a concrete physical sense.
