    I know the headline seems purely political but stay with me, it's intertwined.

    Excerpt:
    The most plausible diagnosis for this cultural decay is that it’s a consequence of the loss of grand narratives and meaning that were once provided by the West’s religious and intellectual heritage. Murray also describes the astonishing appeal of these ideologies as a post-recession phenomenon, with the impact of the 2008 economic downturn having left young people feeling precarious and looking for ways to make sense of it all. As a result, politics isn’t a necessary nuisance; it’s the source of one’s purpose and meaning in life. ​

    The world changed a lot after WWI, the Great Depression and WWII. During the war many men died, women had been working at men's jobs whilst the men were away at war. When the war ended there weren't as many men to do the work and/so the women remained in the work force.

    As a result of this children weren't brought up by their mother. Divorce has become the norm and so on and so forth.

    When people have no God, then the next-highest authority becomes a god.

    There is no long term vision and purpose. It's 'live for today'. I have seen this ruin many people (but for the grace of God there goes me) and I'm afraid it's ruining our country .

    I see the world growing more and more disordered as it moves away from God and His teachings.

    Me too. It's such mind-boggling irony that secularists look at Christendom as a primitive thing, and yet when you remove it from society it all descends into madness. Christendom establishes a natural order to everything.

    Christianity is being removed in ignorance and in the name of "freedom", but society is falling into madness to the point some don't even know if they're male or female.

    Matthew 17:17 “O unbelieving and perverse generation!” Jesus replied. “How long must I remain with you? How long must I put up with you?..."

    That bit they mention about forgiveness being replaced with retribution - it's the scariest and most sickening aspect of all this. They see an apology as a sign of weakness and their opening to go in for the kill. NEVER APOLOGIZE to these people, it's like baring your neck to a pack of wolves.

    Agreed.

    The woke SJW crowd aren't satisfied with an apology, which they don't deserve in the first place. They want one of two outcomes:
    1. The person/persons/entity undergoes a total public transformation to their way of thinking. Chick-Fil-A is a perfect example. They converted from an ostensibly principled Christian company that stood by it's beliefs, to a floppy impotent chain that cowed to the crybullying of the left.
    2. The person/persons/entity is beaten into submission to the point that they're relegated to obscurity and completely eliminated as a "threat". Just look at the comments on basically any political tweet.
    They agents of the left are a functional gestapo.

    They want your life, so they'll take your safety from you. They want your liberty, so they'll take your voice from you. They want your pursuit of happiness, so they'll take your livelihood from you.

    What they really want is the death and destruction of everyone outside of their tent. We see it when Maxine Waters instructs her followers to be violent against us. We see it when Antifa commits unprovoked assaults against anyone presumably on the right (really anyone not wearing their "uniform", effectively the Democratic Schutzstaffel).

    The left is actively moving to shift anyone on the right to second-class citizenship. We are to them what the Samaritans were to the Israelites 2,000+ years ago.
