I get the impression from the fonts that they're talking about society getting soft over the last 60+ years.

is a common concept in Japanese culture and arts, derived from the levels of formality in calligraphy. To dramatically oversimplify, Shin (真) is "lift the brush at the end of each stroke", Gyō (行) is "lift the brush at the end of each character", and Sō (草) is "lift the brush when you're done". Basically the difference between printing, cursive, and possibly-unreadable handwriting.
(they didn't actually use gyōsho or sōsho fonts in that image, just a standard Mincho, a Gothic, and a Maru I don't seem to have in my collection)

Remember the ending montage in Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi
, which ends with Ambitious Japan and Shinkansen? Those were the days. And so recently, too. I'm old enough to remember it!
