I don't know that it's perspective that's changed- people still care. It's just the fact that we now live in a world where more people have easier access to each other, via phones, cell phones, internet, the ever-increasing use of cars, and the expansion of cities and suburbs. That means that our relationships can span more miles than they may have before all these things became available... so I guess if you want, you can blame it on technology, but the idea is still the same. It's people supporting each other- the only real change is in location.
