I’ve also seen this connected with the rise of individualism that’s been going on since the early 80’s.

Allegedly though, according to the historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr, societies tend to move in 40 year periods of either community or individualism. Assuming individualism started in 1980, this would have it end in 2020.

These two books sum it up well:
