What's gone wrong, very wrong?

Something's missing in their souls
No thought or compassion for others
 
Selfish first, others last seems to be the way
Yet some refuse to or don't see
 
Ill wind blows, building to a gale,
To swamp us all, haunt us all,
 
Pillars in shifting sand, eroded base
Soon to topple and crush everyone
 
This trick of the light called democracy
Gone with the storm winds as if it never was
