By James Kalb, Crisis Magazine - But dissolution isn’t always accompanied by new life. Times differ, and we won’t understand our own by saying it’s like every other. We have specific problems, and won’t deal with them properly if we deny them or say they aren’t really problems... With that in mind, it’s evident that we suffer from the dissolution of social and cultural connections. People are less tied to each other than they used to be.
