    Well....a couple things. "in the day" people may have feared their social status, family standings (namely inheritance) or the possibility of losing their jobs more than fearing God, I don't have statistics, but we all know cultural pressures can create a lot of fear in people. Basically there are many reasons people can fake 'fear of the Lord' but their real fear was of the stigmatism the culture would afford them. Modern culture could care less about those sort of things, the boundaries are far, far wider than they used to be (for better or worse).

    Beyond that.....
    We see that in our lifetimes for sure, but historically it's a trend, from Pharaoh all the way to Pilate.

    Even in Israel, Judges record entire generations that built idols and corrupted themselves with the nations; apparently they didn't fear God much either.
    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

    3. Wake up Europe!
    The wake up call came right after 9/11 when Muslims here openly celebrated the massacre and a large part (forgot the exact %) of the Muslim population in a poll said America got what it deserved.

    I've had to determine which kind of king I desire to follow. One that will build a wall to keep people out of this country or tear down walls of division among His people. One that will protect my right to bear arms or one that will turn the other cheek. One that will conquer my enemies or one that requires that I love my enemies. When the church figures this out maybe we will be relevant again.

    There's a difference between what God has called government to do and what God has called the church to do.
    Matt 9:13
    13 "But go and learn what this means: ' I DESIRE COMPASSION,AND NOT SACRIFICE,' for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
    NASU
