Civilization is in the midst of a transformation equal to hunters learning to farm or agricultural civilizations changing (as America did) with industrial revolution. Sure we can celebrate cultural, economic, and technological transformation, but inherent with today’s changes coupled with a complex information based economy are horrific alterations to our social and moral life.
Individualism fuels innovation and prosperity, but it corrodes virtually all forms of authority and a heightened dependence on government. It weakens the bonds of families, neighborhoods, and nations together. Disrupted social order can be repaired because humankind is constructed for life in a civil society governed by moral rules.
Without moral rules, yes religion, civilization breeds chaos. Conservatives have learned their lesson for sitting on the sideline while Republicans, who are supposed to be conservative but are not, allowed morals to be shoved in a corner and ignored.
