    The video for #16 says a lot about a portion of our society ... Then again, the entire article, and especially the documentation contained in it's links, says a lot about the society we live in, and what is happening to it.


    Is society on the brink of a collapse into chaos ?
    What are you seeing ?

    Do you notice how the majority of these deal with morality issues? I do agree that as this country sinks deeper and deeper into the "new Morality" the closer we come to our demise as a great nation.

    A lot of that is pretty alarmist, but it doesn't take away from the fact that society is crumbling ...

    I personally think that this all started when the government decided not follow it's own laws. Particularly those dealing with the southern boarder. People are just starting to say "if they don't follow the law, then why should we?".

    It's one reason why I carry at least 30 rounds (17 in the gun, 13 in the extra mag), but I might start having to throw the shotgun in the truck when I go in to the Front Range.

    "In New York City, one 32-year-old man was recently charged with sexually assaulting an 85-year-old woman"

    There have been sickos since the dawn of man, this means nothing. Murder and violent crime have been on the decline nationwide for the past decade.

    Agree with Russ7777 --- has to do with a moral society. If we had real morals, the threat of force wouldn't be what was keeping people civil, they would be doing it because they knew what was "right."

    Don't worry guys, I'm not going to get "preachy"..... :-D

    As I have seen more and more of these things happening, I think maybe I need to start carrying my extra mags. again. :-(

    That article is BS. One could compile a list of things during just about any period in our history to show the collapse of society. The problem is people have a very narrow frame of reference. If you've been around awhile you would know that things today are the same as they ever were.

    at least half of this is "nothing new" we just have a media that likes to broadcast it all over the country now, compared to when they used a little discretion in the past.

    Morals religiously based or not are the only things which hold society together. The more people move away from them the worst it's going to get. The scary thing is how desensitized to violence, sex, greed, etc children are becoming from TV, movies, and video games.

    The article is such a crock of poo and purposely written to overdo the "social/civil breakdown". If society was so civil in times past, then why was there need for a handgun? Handguns are primarily for self defense and if everyone respected one another and treated each other well, then there wouldn't have been a need for its invention. Going back even further, why would a dagger or sword be carried outside of warring regions while in town/village.?. People are inherently evil, have always been, and will always be and will treat each other poorly if there are no consequences. We are inherently violent, it's in our nature. It's why rules/laws had to be made; to bring social order. Without order, people will revert back to violence and the mistreatment of others.

    It's up to the family and society to teach the younger generations what is considered socially appropriate, but with divorce, separation, single-parent homes, American society following the practice of polite ignorance, etc., there is no one to educate the younger people.

    Take a gander at this article: http://www.cnn.com/2011/LIVING/06/15/fathers.pew.study/index.html?hpt=hp_c1

    Social breakdown? Try breakdown of the family unit.
