What are the causes of moral degradation in society?

QuestionMan
It's something I've been thinking about for the past few days.
How did we get from treating people with kindness and respect to being extremely individualistic and selfish?

Please don't say it's because there is a lack of faith. I never had faith and I try to live by the golden rule no matter how much shit I've went through and continue to go through. At the same time there are religious people which are complete assholes *cough* Westboro Baptist Church *cough*. Religion also has it's own flaws as pointed out in the below video.

So what are the causes?
