David Brooks’s article on weakening of social fabric

15 Feb

The New York Times Columnist and author David Brooks has an article about the weakening of the social fabric in the U.S., http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/14/opinion/brooks-the-materialist-fallacy.html?_r=1&ref=davidbrooks.  It contains interesting commentary and cites various theorists for explanations, but his prescription for “bourgeois paternalism” is not impressive.
