Default How Washington Has Helped Destroy American Civil Society and Family Life

How Washington Has Helped Destroy American Civil Society and Family Life

Excerpt: The urtext of this topic is Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community by political scientist Robert D. Putnam. He uses the decline in league bowling as a sort of shorthand for the overall decline in American participation in social life.

The decline in bowling league membership parallels the decline of memberships in a number of other civic organizations including the Knights of Columbus, B’Nai Brith, labor unions, the Boy Scouts, the Red Cross, the Lions, the Elks, the Kiwanis, the Freemasons, parent-teacher organizations, the League of Women Voters and the Junior Chamber of Commerce to name only a few examples other than bowling leagues and churches.

What this means is that there are significantly fewer connections between people and fewer civic-minded discussions going on now than there were in the past. It also means the loss of identity tied to something other than work and consumer goods (see the explosion of adults spending their money on Star Wars or Harry Potter knick-knacks).

I found this article to be interesting because it goes beyond the standard comparison, to something new... bowling and attendance at bowling allies.

Some will damn this report but only because they know it to be true. Social cohesion is dissolving in many ways and this is not by accident. It is intentional. The intentional destruction of America as a sovereign nation who aims to welcome LEGAL immigrants in so that they too can build their own legacy under the capitalist system.

Now look at our nation. A shadow of its self, surrounded by predators aiming to take a bite.

The seductive powers of becoming independent (selfish hater of family) and staring at one's smart phone or computer has all but wrecked the cohesive family and neighborhood where no one knows anyone anymore.
