Many people are scared and angry and unhappy. The traditional bulwarks of their courage and serenity - faith and morality- cannot withstand the mocking power of the demon 24/7 economy. And since materialism only brings them dissatisfaction, there seems to be no reason for them to do anything at all except act out their rage and pain, or seek oblivion in drink and drugs and home entertainment centers.
For those of us who are not scared and angry and unhappy all the time, it may help to remember that the antisocial behavior of those who are arises out of their low self-esteem. Try to forgive them, for they know not what they do.
