Too Little, Too Late?

Melanie Phillips makes a point others have also been trying to make recently:

Although most people may no longer be churchgoers, Christianity infuses all this country's institutions, traditions and values.

These have been systematically attacked by a secular culture of unlimited self-indulgence and self-destructive behaviour, resulting in the collapse of the married family, rising crime, drug and alcohol abuse and a grievous erosion of the sanctity of human life.
She may as well be talking of Australia as of Britain.

But is the point she makes too late, considering the cult of individualism that is washing once strong societies down the gutter?
