I pretty much agree with all of you, and think that this is like losing the
religion that you once believed in.

I think that the meaning of this poem is pretty oblious. The poem means
the rate of which our society is growing and changing is beyond our
control. Cummings was smart enough to see that.the values of todays
society are changing for the worst. With this in mind, read the poem again
and see if you understand what I mean.

I think Cummings is talking about the rise of materialism in place of
religion (thus "do fearers worship Much and Quick" and "badness not being
felt as bad"). Just a guess.

it appears to me that cummings was refering to the hypocrisy of organized
religion and that in the end we are damned no matter what we believe

it appears that cummings is commenting on the loss of belief in a spritual
way, and was replaced by the need for the bigger better.
