The question in and of itself does not make sense.
Is society failing us or are we failing ourselves? Insinuates that there is a difference between the two, when the truth of the matter is that we are SOCIETY and there is no other.
Society is the complete combination of citizens. We, together make up society, so it is the combination of citizens who are in society that are failing America or whatever country you are part of. That includes the citizens, who are elected to political office.
Probably both but you we can fix that one person at a time for you: to thine own self be true.
For society - do your duty as you see it.
Perhaps better said as "Is society failing the individual or are we as individuals failing society?" Each of us, our personal beliefs, our values and standards, our relationships come together to create society. That said, seeing as it is individuals that create and are indeed a part of society it would have to be said that we have failed society. By creating a society that does not support all of the individuals we have in fact failed ourselves.
