A few weeks ago, I posted that I had a theory that there was one specific cause which creates or at least contributes to most of the things that are wrong with our society. I promised that I'd post about it, and I didn't mean to be a tease, but I've been distracted. Now I'm actually trying to write it, and I'm realizing that I have a whole book's worth of stuff that I'm trying to say, half of which I've actually figured out and half that I'm still working on. So, I will try to present the basics of my idea here, but I beg your indulgence because it's not going to be as clear and complete as I had imagined.
Before you read on, if you didn't contribute your list of things that are wrong with our society before, or you'd like to add some more, feel free to do so here. After I have explained my theory, I will try to show how the specific problems proposed can be blamed on this cause.
