I don't deny that change can and will happen. I'm not even necessarily opposed to it if it can be said to contribute something to society as a whole.
Again, however, I simply don't think this has been the case with the social changes the Western World has experienced over the course of the last half century. They have only served to make things more difficult, by and large, not better.
