A sign of degeneracy is the NUMBER OF people who say "the amount of people" with no one noticing or daring to correct them.
That is why the immigrants (who are not mostly sluts and bastards) keep coming. Most people who learn English as a foreign language know not to say "amount of people" and say instead "number of people".
Or they have their fathers who are around to correct them.
Or their elders do, without being stabbed in the face or accused of being paedos.
