Symbolically, music's Golden Era has past

As music devolves into trash (not universally but nearly so), does it symbolize the decay of Western society?  I have argued (long ago on this blog somewhere) that musical decay is a symptom of societal devolving.  Bill Whittle and Alfonzo Rachel discuss the same idea. Roman society decayed dramatically towards the end. I'm not sure about it's music, but as I said, musical decay is a symptom of a larger problem.

Is growth always followed by decay? Is every society destined to fail? In another example of the decay, does the defund police movement provide more evidence of a descent into anarchy right before a societal collapse?  I don't believe we have come that far but if we don't turn the ship around, so to speak, it may become inevitable a lot sooner than we'd like.
