The American Dream is fading away in much of the country, and the problem isn’t pure economics, nor is it a case of stubborn old white men falling behind because they refuse embrace progress. The root cause of our problems–crumbling families, deaths of despair, political dysfunction–is the erosion of community and local, civil institutions–most especially church. The result of a secularizing country is a plague of alienation for the working class, as people struggle to build families and improve their lives without the support structure they need.
