The decline of the middle class.

Not enough moolah for a good education system
Not everyone gets the medical attention (ie mental health) they need
(when you're poor you dont have medical insurance)
Higher poverty levels, while massively wealthy people live in decadence, just a neighborhood over.

The family unit is NOT as stable as it used to be IMO.

If the middle class wasn't shrinking, I dont think this shit would happen so much.

That's my guess and I'm sticking to it.
