We are destroying our children’s future (financial bankruptcy, the destruction of the middle class and growing poverty) because here in what is supposed to be the land of the free, there is no agreement on the meaning of freedom.
In a free society does government have to right to manage everyone’s healthcare?
Does government have right to ban abortions or define marriage?
Does the federal government have the right to regulate how our children are educated?
Does government have the right to send our youth into needless wars?
But it gets even worse. What causes such cultural blindness and apathy? The real problem is we refuse to teach or even talk about the values we should learn and practice to live as adults in a free society.
Freedom means each is responsible for how they conduct their lives. If we rely on government to manage people’s lives and businesses, there will be no freedom. Treating people like dolts and subjects is demeaning and slowing destroys the hopes and dreams of future generations.
The problem is the lack of shared moral values.
