The Age of Rage?

Recently, Financial Times historian Simon Schama stated "we might be on the threshold of an age of rage" referring to the economic struggles throughout the world.

As of 2010, the world has now spawned several generations indoctrinated into the misaligned evolutionary theory reducing the human race into a mere by-product of “primordial soup”. At best, we have been characterized as the “carbon unit” of Star Trek fame; at worst, we are a super virus encroaching on the natural resources of “mother earth”. After all the pseudo-intellectuals “disposed of God”, we find ourselves orphaned, with not a single substitution in the wings. Stephen Crane summed up our new enlightenment quite well.
“A man said to the universe: “Sir, I exist.” “However,” replied the universe, “The fact has not created in me a sense of obligation.”
Since we have no ultimate purpose for existing, we are told to “grab all the gusto you can because you only go around once”. Having taken this cliché as our esprit de corps, it appears modern man has "double-downed" in his quest to gain money, power, and pleasure. Of course, the primer for power and pleasure is usually tied to money, that has become the all- in-all. What we are now seeing is the fall out when all of our hopes and dreams are tied to personal prosperity.
Culturally, we have gone from social order around a framework of moral absolutes to disorder centered around personal preference and "survival of the fittest". The manifestation of this "Pseudo-Superman-New World Order" based on the hearts of men, "who did what is right is their own eyes",could be the dawning of a new Dark Age where we plunder one another for the right to survive.   Ah, the hope of humanity is reassuring.
