I think what's really interesting is the triumph of hedonism in our society despite the centuries of evidence that it destroys societies. And this from the bunch that claims to believe in science. Which they don't of course. They only believe in science enough to use it a cudgel against their enemies. The funny thing is we've been so hopeless in the counter-argument. We haven't shown the evidence that the "traditional values"/Christian lifestyle is superior to the hedonistic one. We haven't shown how "traditional values" is a relatively new societal development considering humanity's half-million year existence. Of all the advancement that has come to humanity from it. We're never going to make being responsible "cool".
