Society has turned far too apathetic

I am saddened by what I see in this country today.
Most Americans have become so apathetic and carefree that they don’t seem to see the bleak future we ourselves have created. I have no better words to describe the state of our nation now than this quote from John Adams, one of our founding fathers of this nation:
“When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers, and destroyers press upon them so fast, that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon the American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour. The people grow less steady, spirited and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity and frugality become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness and downright venality swallow up the whole society.”
This is where we are today. We have become a self-defeating society, drunk off the spoils left to us by our forefathers. May God help us
