Most of the problems we face today are as a result of society. Watch
I won't say that all the problems we face are down to society and culture. That Icelandic volcano and its toxic fumes is one problem we can't put down to that, for example. And we mustn't overlook individual human urges. But yes, we don't live in a perfect society, and politics and the media make good use of its flaws.
It seems like all the problems we face are because of societal/ cultural problems and that the parties who there for blame everyone else (e.g. Ukip) get more appeal because they make people feel better about them selves.
