OP:

Define what you mean by 'moral decaying of society'

I'll wait.

Apparently, back in the slave trade days society was more moral or let’s go back even later to medieval times, even more moral... some people should think twice before speaking lol

Then why is the crime rate lower now than it was 20 years ago? Or does evil for moral decay to you these days happen every time a same sex couple gets a marriage license? Doing evil these days is much different and considerably less related to crime?

Moral decay?

Is this where we link the Access Hollywood video or our president denying he knew anything about paying off a porn actress to be quiet about their affair while the President's wife was tending to their toddler? Or is it where we should drop a link to the 10,000+ documented lies/mistruths coming out the mouth or from a tweet from our president? Or the thousands of toxic tweets coming from our president which slams other races or other people? Or when a president is lackluster in his condemnation of white supremacists/neo nazis when called upon to do so.

A fish rots from the head.

Well SJW came out from prejudice times. We overshot the midpoint. Coming back. Hopefully we don't overshoot the middle ground again or it's back to separate drinking fountains..

Chicken and egg which is the root? Whenever we remain in this frame of knowledge, we can't be duly sure of any explanation.
Suppose a world with no evils, is it probable? Very low confidence. At dawn, does morality depend on the number of evils in a closed society (if it's countable)? Maybe but should be loosely because otherwise it would likely be short lived and put out of consideration.
So we'd now have a relatively good society with high morality, and minority of evils (well it's never zero, right?). What pushes up the number (percentage) of evils? Of course evils can breed evils but when morality is high, they don't have fertile field to breed. Conclusion: morality decay is the root cause. Anything self-destroyed would be more destructive.
