Everyone agrees that America is not the same place that it once was.
Our society is undergoing a fundamental transformation that is absolutely breathtaking, and some of the changes have been positive. But many would argue that most of the changes have been negative, and the truth is that we can see evidence of this all around us. Wikipedia defines social decay as “the tendency for society to decline or disintegrate over time, perhaps due to the lapse or breakdown of traditional social support systems.”
As a society, we are more disconnected from one another than we have ever been before, and perhaps this is one of the big reasons why so much anger and hatred are growing all around us. At this point, a large portion of the population doesn’t even seem to possess a basic level of empathy and compassion for their fellow citizens, and that has frightening implications for the future of our nation.
Because we are so disconnected from one another, it is very easy for each of us to get intensely focused on the details of our own daily lives.
But when we step back and take a broader view of things, the extent to which our society has deteriorated is quite stunning.
Today, I would like to share with you 7 glimpses into the social decay that is voraciously eating away at the fabric of our country…
