These issues have been around for ages, centuries. They have been the cause of fallen empires societies and cultures. But form the fallen others emerge. It's a cycle, nothing lasts forever. The glue and fabric that holds things together on a governmental level is profit. When there's no more profit and power, or it is elsewhere in greater indulgent amounts, or "selling out" brings in more profit that remaining "united" is when there will be a fall of a government. The family is the glue and fabric of society and culture. It is unfortunately being chipped away, degraded and weekend in a sense, by those who see the traditional family as a unifying property. Divide the family, divide the society and culture, divide the nation.
