Mending Walls: Faith, Part 2

Thanks again to David at TWC for developing this conversation...

Part 1 of "Mending Walls: Faith" dealt very briefly with a missing meme in today's society: Faith as a bilateral covenant of trusting obedience/providence and protection. It's a meme that has been present in every stable and flourishing society the West (and even much of the early Middle East) has produced for millennia, and its lack has profound implications for us today.

But before we very, very briefly approach those implications, I'd like to select just a few, by no means exhaustive, examples of what the lack of that meme has produced in our society.
