Incresingly, it seems like we're moving away from the ideas of family, society, collective responsibility. We're moving more and more toward individuality. Every man for himself. I comes before U. We don't look to each other for support. We look at each other as competition. Instead of helping each other, we're jealous, self-involved, scared, fighting, greedy. Sharing is out. Hoarding is in. Enough is out. More-than-enough is in. Saving is out. Spending is in.

(Assuming this is actually happening) why is this happening? I'll offer two possible factors: the government's love of the corporation, the rise of consumerism.

Why is this happening?
