Chivalry is usually known as a moral system or an honor code. It originated inthe 12th century when kings ruled the country, as a code to make peace.
Nowthere is no king or queen monarchy, now theres that wonderful thing that wecall the Government. If you were to ask me if chivalry existed today Id haveto say that there are some examples, but there sure arent as many as thereused to be. Back in the time when King Arthur ruled a lot of the people wereloyal to their king and their country. Now our wonderful crime, racism, and hateconquer all systems.
Some ways that you might be able to say that chivalry stillis around is perhaps clubs, such as, basketball teams or baseball teams. Theteams as well as the fans have great loyalty to their team. The fans will waitoutside for days to get tickets for the big game.
People pay to see fights onPay-Per-View. And if you ever go to a Hawks game Ill guarantee you that theirfans will tell off anyone that is saying anything bad about their belovedteam! Another way that you could find chivalry today would be all the Unions.Chicago Unions have plenty of hard working men and women in all sorts of trades.They are very loyal and proud (most of them!) of their work that they have done.Then you get the people that just want their paycheck.
Those are the types thatreally dont show much loyalty or contribute much to their job. Some ways thatyou could say that there is not really chivalry in todays society is theslowly disintegrating church. Not nearly as many people are becoming involved inthe church now as in earlier centuries. If you look at the data there is a bigdecrease in Ministers, Priests, Nuns, and Deacons. I know this because my Dad isbecoming ordained to be a Deacon in about a year. After he is done doing all ofthe steps, he will become a deacon in the Catholic Church. I think that somepeople dont care, but also I think that they just have too many things to do,and are too busy for the church.
In my overall view of chivalry I would say thatit depends how you define chivalry to say if it exists anymore. There are a lotof pros and a lot of cons, but it all depends on the persons beliefs. I thinkthat chivalry exists today, but its mostly up to the reader to define it asright or wrong. There is no right or wrong answer, its your opinion.European History
