Brightness of humanity has begun to fade
To the Editor:
During the approximately four-plus years we have been in a deep recession, more Americans than ever have lost faith in our civilian governmental institutions, which constitute both elected representatives and hired/appointed employees at both the federal and state levels.
To simplify the subject, it could be said that the moral character of our government has largely disappeared. This characteristic is not just present in the USA, one only needs to look at the events that have occurred in northern Africa and the Middle East over the past several months.
Many countries that make up the European Union are also plagued by large scale citizen dissatisfaction and moderate to severe economic difficulties.
It is sadly apparent that the shining brightness of humanity has begun to fade. It is up to those of us who can remember a past era of high moral standards and creativity in America, and along with other individuals out of government who can visualize a better society, to impart the positive values of philosophy, virtue, inspiration and wisdom to all those interested.
Let us get started. Today.
