You know your society is failing when…

 
"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion — when
you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who
produce nothing — when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods,
but in favors — when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work,
and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you — when
you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice — you may
know that your society is doomed."
