Daniel Cox: The Loneliness Epidemic in America

On this week’s episode, we discuss a disturbing trend in America: the rise of loneliness, which Merriam-Webster defines as “being without company, cut off from others; sadness from being alone.” Some blame social media and the COVID pandemic as drivers of the loneliness epidemic, but are they the only causes? Daniel Cox joins to discuss how marriage and family formation play a role in a person’s ability to connect and why Gen Z is the loneliest of all generations. Finally, we discuss what you can do if you too identify as lonely. 

 

Daniel Cox is the director of the Survey Center on American Life and a research fellow in polling and public opinion at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he specializes in survey research, politics, youth culture and identity, and religion.

Policy Focus: Fixing Our Child Welfare System To Help America’s Most Vulnerable Kids

Naomi Schaefer Riley joins to discuss this month’s policy focus: Fixing Our Child Welfare System to Help America’s Most Vulnerable Kids. This is an important topic because data show that children increasingly lack a safe, permanent, and loving home in America.

She also writes about parenting, higher education, religion, philanthropy, and culture.She is a former columnist for the New York Post and a former Wall Street Journal editor and writer, as well as the author of seven books, including, most recently, “No Way to Treat a Child: How the Foster Care System, Family Courts, and Racial Activists Are Wrecking Young Lives,” (Bombardier, 2021).
