Are social cycles synchronized with solar cycles?

Logically, if life on Earth emerged naturally and Earth emerged naturally from within the Solar System, then why would each plant, animal and human not be hardwired to the same cycles as our solar system and ultimately to the galaxy and the greater cosmos. That is, if our Sun goes through a cycle, does society go through the same cycle? No magical force from a distance is needed - only the realization that everything started at the same time and shares the same clock and rhythms. This logic suggests that when we see a cycle in our solar system, we should expect a similar cycle in world politics, finances, conflict, awareness, etc.

So, with this in mind I offer the following graphic showing the Sun's current delayed sunspot cycle and how that correlates with major social events over the past decade.
