While Christianity is still very relevant in the United States, and is exploding in the developing world, Europe today has sunk below unbelief, and is now labeled "Christophobic" and "anti-religious."

It's more than just having something to do. It's about having a discipline code with which to follow in life. Discipline societies are always stronger internally.
Think about it:
'Having something to do,' and doing it--that's called responsibility.
Carrying responsibilities willingly builds self-discipline.
A society cannot actually be 'disciplined' except by government and that is not 'self-discipline.'
If all members of a society were self-disciplined to the point of self-government; resulting in an peaceful and productive community--well, that would be the first truly disciplined society.
Hasn't happened yet.
