I think one of the most concerning aspects of this is that it's hard to see where the leaders of tomorrow will come from. Whilst I'm not implying that all of the younger generation lack motivation, are possesion driven and have no interest in the future of the country, It seems that a high proportion are this way inclined.
Does this mean anarchy? I hope not, but your point is well taken, and a wake up call. If we fail our young people, Britain could well (as you state) implode.
