~excerpt~ Some say we need to push full steam ahead, that the policies in place just need more time. Some say we need to get back to Capitalism. Some say back to the Constitution. Still others say back to the basics of a Republic those ideals that the Founders had for securing individual freedom.
U.S. Congressman Ron Pauls farewell speech pointed out some interesting observations about freedom and liberty that I hope you take a look at. Rush Limbaugh discussed this on his show today and agreed with Rep. Paul, but added that the key is that this is not a political problem, or an economic/Capitalism problem, but rather an education problem. An education problem that has affected our culture in such a way that what was once cherished and held in high regard as being the definition of freedom, is now something completely different to these younger generations. He is on to something.
But I think he has stopped short of the true answer. The true direction. The true going back to. When we talk about culture, what we really are stating is a core set of beliefs that govern and operate our communal relationships with one another. This will ultimately have a societys morals as its root. What a society believes morally will be reflected in its culture.
But we cant just stop at morality. At least not in America. In Muslim countries they have a morality. It includes some of the worse abuses of women known on this planet. In China they have a morality. This includes a husband and a wife killing their children in the womb until they get the desired gender of child, since they are only allowed one child. No, Americas morality has its roots in Christianity.
But still this is not enough.
