Everytime I come across articles like these I can’t help but wonder: what happened to Japan? How did its society, which once functioned—for better and worse—as almost a superfamilial structure, become so atomized?

Of course, the atomization of society, not to mention the shattered human detritus laying discarded and forgotten across nations, is well in progress in the West too. Individual Japanese may be lonely, but their nation as a whole, sadly, are in thick company with various other nations composed of the lonely and marginalized.
