Culture of Complaint

People are becoming less constrained by social convention, laws and morals. More and more behaviour deviates until checked by direct conflict with another person be it a representative of law such as police or of social convention such as a neighbour. The subtle but pervasive constraint of morals is constantly opposed by the forces of "progress". Consequently, the work of these other agents of social cohesion is increased to breaking point. The signs of this tendency can be seen in increasing resentment of government interference in life. They area also at the root of the victim mentality which expects the state to ensure that people are always safe, healthy, and even happy after engaging in any activity (illegal as well as legal). The patently absurd nature of this expectation leads to inevitable frustration displayed in alienation from society and even physical violence.
