I think people's loss of a structured society to identify themselves within, be it family, church, community, or preferably some combination of all, leaves people living in a world divorced from a common sense of fidelity with their fellow man. That lack of connection with others, that emptiness, is filled by some with possessions, or an obsession for celebrity or sports, or they direct their self hatred towards others.

I'm certainly not saying this condition never existed in the past. But our culture has changed, and continues to change, and we're less connected with our neighbor than we used to be. As a result, simply put, we as a people don't care about anyone other than ourselves and our own self interests.
