It was like this before, and it will likely stay this way until the servers get shut off. All that has happened is that you have either bored of the current scripted content and cannot find anything else to engage you, or you have reached a greater level of awareness and understand now that a greater competitive purpose is needed to give any point at all to your actions.
GENERALLY - Eve is very, very, very boring game. Which goal is accumulating money and riches now? It wasn't like that before. And I'm not saying that because i was young and excited player. It just too much stinks commercialism at the moment.
Neither of these things is something to get upset over. If you have tired of the grind of Eve's PvE content just move on and find another game you do like. If PvP and/or competing with the other players for things in New Eden interests you but you haven't found a way to experience it, I would suggest you mix things up and try something new, but if you don't want competition with other players in your gaming experience, then just move along. Grinding ISK will not get anymore interesting for you than it already is.
I do agree CCP has added an unpleasant whiff of commercialism with their recent efforts at monetizing the game. Still, so far I have been able to tune most of that out and ignore most of the tawdriness. That may not always be the case and at some point I will tire of my sandbox game waging psychological war against me in an attempt to part me with my money, so I completely understand if someone has had enough. CCP is walking a fine line with these monetization tricks for a game I pay a (hefty by modern standards) monthly subscription to play.
I will also say I think you have overestimated the risk to yourself in highsec. It isn't zero, but many people operate with no problem every day. Normal (T2) fit Marauders are rarely, if ever exploded, as with tanked Procurer/Skiffs. Only when you play Eve as a progression game and fit more and more expensive modules to eek out a bit more profit will you run into problems when someone calls you on your greed.
If you aren't happy playing though, just leave. There is no point making yourself miserable in your free time. Eve Online isn't not going to change for you. Not now, 15 years into the experiment.
