The article makes some good points, except the assumption that there is a conspiracy against the coffee saucer (specifically). I agree there is an attack on social customs, and the finer things of life, so that modern man is more "relaxed" and "casual" which, even if one doesn't want to admit it, affects a person's views of life, religion and, ultimately, God. If you are too casual with yourself, and your fellow man, you will be too casual with God.
Certainly, the gradual corruption of manners and social customs is due, in direct proportion, to the gradual belief in evolution and modern man's erroneous view that he is "just an animal" or "just 1 type of life among many in the galaxy". This depressing and subversive view of life is a direct attack on mankind's lofty purpose as heirs to heaven, sons of God and members of God's Holy Court in heaven. Certainly the devil is behind these evil thoughts!
Manners/customs used to be practiced regularly which were both a discipline and a celebration of the "dignity of man" (not to be confused with V2's abominable document), which dignity is, as King David exclaimed, a wonderous thing to think about - how much God truly cares for us and how special we are in His eyes:
What is man that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?
Thou hast made him a little less than the angels, thou hast crowned him with glory and honour: and hast set him over the works of thy hands.
Thou hast subjected all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen: moreover the beasts also of the fields. The birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea, that pass through the paths of the sea. O Lord our Lord, how admirable is thy name in all the earth!
(Psalm 8, 4:9)
