In the present study, a comparison was made across three generations of male respondents of the same family to determine whether aggression and moral values had undergone any change. Further t,he sample was spread across the rural and urban regions of Haryana, as apparently violence and moral disengagement appear to be the product of modern societal changes and should therefore be higher among the urban population. For this purpose, a purposive sample of 20 male students of 11th and 12th classes, who were residing with their father as well as grandfather, was elected from rural and urban areas of Haryana. Two-way ANOVA was used to analyse the difference in aggression and moral values. Further, correlational analysis was also done to study the relationship between the variables. Results indicate that contrary to general belief, aggression and moral disengagement was more in the rural respondents. Further maximum moral disengagement was observed among the adolescents. Technical advancement and modernisation, which contribute to rapid economic growth, are universally desired; however, the conflict has been found to be the greatest in developing nations, least in modern Nations and intermediate in the least developed nations. This surgency in violence can be attributed to the rapid social change which occurs due to advancements and generates instability.
