TBH, Western societies... Are kinda collapsing. We're too busy killing our futures by killing science and technology off in the classroom, and replacing it with religious nonsense.
Actually that couldn't be any further from the truth. Religion has been on a steady decline. It's been declining faster in Europe, but it's still losing steam in the US too.
The actual problem is that the media dramatizes crap like that to make it look worse than it actually is. I turn on the news every morning and get to hear about all the people that got murdered the previous day, but that sort of thing isn't a massive widespread problem. Honestly the world would be a better place if the media didn't have a strong voice (aka bias).
