The neo-conservative policies begun most aggressively under Reagan are now dismantling American society. But then neo-conservatives like Margaret Thatcher stated quite openly that they believe "...there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families."(Margaret Thatcher) So, what we have today has followed their logic completely: a narrow strata of rich individuals and families and a huge population of unemployed and underemployed, and many others soon to follow into a human garbage dump. Society is being ripped to shreds.
Unless and until people stop listening to their ruling class media and submitting to their policies like sheep to the slaughterhouse, we will witness increasing scenes of crime, domestic violence, homelessness, police atrocities, prisons, drug addiction, etc. The descent into a social nightmare must stop, and stop soon.
It's not hard seeing where this trend is heading. It portends hard times getting harder when many millions already lost jobs, steady incomes, homes and future prospects because governments at all levels plan tougher than ever conditions ahead to transfer more wealth to America's super-rich already with too much.
