Statistics of social disintegration

Between 1970 and 2012, the number of single person households almost doubled, from 17 percent to 27 percent. Part of the reason – Americans are increasingly not getting married. About 20% of adults over 25 years of age (about 42 million, no small numbers) have never married, up from 9% in 1960, again the figure has doubled. Trends in this direction have been consistently incremental or rising. Men are more likely to stay unmarried, which has been linked to the increasing rate of unemployed men relative to women, for example 51% of black men for every 100 employed women.

Deeper reasons why all this happening

I have a powerful theory in this regard. It goes as follows and will be delved into somewhat in my upcoming book on how to heal our worldview. The modern world’s primary cosmic focus is the mathematical. That worldview, since the 17th century, has inspired a vast and deep reconstruction of the soci0-political-economic environment of our lives to be organized by financial relationships rather than organic ties to agriculture and other domains of living nature. Financial relationships really reflect how we mathematize our primary relationships between people and the world of nature around us. Math symbols abstract how to separate all elements of consciousness. To deeply separate elements of consciousness is to disintegrate consciousness. A society which reconstructs its vision of nature under the umbrella of a mathematical view, I believe, eventually disintegrates social relationships – which is what we are witnessing, inexorably, in our times.
