20 Signs That The Collapse Of Society Has Begun

If you still haven’t noticed how the foundations of America have been steadily crumbling over the past few decades, then you’re not paying attention. In recent years, our major cities and institutions have been decaying at a pace that’s unlike anything this country has ever seen. We are being destroyed in thousands of different ways, and yet very few people seem alarmed about this.
The downfall of the family unit is accelerating in the U.S. For centuries untold, families have served as the dominant formative force of the character of the next generation. In a healthy society, each family unit is informed and directed by general cultural trends. But in a degenerate society, family units can break away and subsist on their own devices. No wonder why divorce rates are rising everywhere in the country. At this point, our population can’t agree on right and wrong anymore. Lifeway Research exposed that more than 6 in 10 of those older than 45 say right and wrong do not change. For those 35 and younger, fewer than 4 in 10 make that claim. “That’s a huge shift between generations,” notes Scott McConnell, executive director of Lifeway Research. “Older Americans grew up at a time when ideas about morality were more stable,” he argues. “That’s no longer true for younger Americans. We are shifting very fast from a world where right and wrong didn’t change to a world where right and wrong are relative,” McConnell said. “We are not all on the same page when it comes to morality. And we haven’t reckoned with what that means.”
Meanwhile, Democracy is at risk in America. This year, the International IDEA thinktank has added the United States to its annual list of “backsliding” democracies for the first time, pointing to a “visible deterioration” it said began in 2019. The report says the trend towards democratic erosion has “become more acute and worrying” since the start of the health crisis. The organization’s secretary general, Kevin Casas-Zamora, underlined that “the visible deterioration of democracy in the United States, as seen in the increasing political disputes, the efforts to suppress free speech, and the runaway polarization are some of the most concerning developments in recent years”.

Corruption is also a rampant issue in our society. Wikipedia has chronologically organized a list of all political scandals that ever occurred in America. As you scroll down toward the more recent administrations, you can’t help but notice how the number gets larger and larger — clearly indicating a growing trend in corruption. Now, corporate greed is the new norm. Pew Research data also shows that since 1978, CEO pay has risen by over 940%. On the other hand, average worker salaries have only increased 12% during the same period. No wonder why most people in America are pessimistic about the country’s long-term future. A Pew Research Center survey showed that most Americans think the United States will be struggling with skyrocketing levels of debt, a wider gap between the rich and the poor, and a workforce threatened by automation over the next 20 years. On top of that, 66% of respondents believe “the economy will be weaker, health care will be less affordable, the condition of the environment will be worse and older Americans will have a harder time making ends meet than they do now.” We can ignore all the symptoms we want, but the end result is still coming. Our nation is falling apart right before our eyes, and if we stay on this road, there is only one result that will be possible. That’s why today, we compiled several factors that are driving our country to its demise.
