Research and theory states that groups are organized on the basis of either common identity or common bond.  When we bemoan the loss of social cohesion and bowling along as an artifact of technology (a personal choice) and not a demographic inevitably (globalization, de-urbanization, the die-off of the Greatest Generation, the dominance of the Boomers, and the reduced potential – by existing measures – of GenXers and Millennials).

Our society isn’t ending.  It is changing to reflect the new reality.
