...The country that many of us were born in has ceased to exist. And we have no one to blame but ourselves. Nothing can or will change until we come to terms with the grim reality of moral degeneration. And I have no hope that this can happen, save by some terrible trial...
Every day, the news brings a startling new incident of moral corruption. A few days ago it was reported that an eighteen-year-old geology student at Arizona State University had starred in an online pornographic film in which she performed "explicit and degrading" sex acts for a one-time payment of $2,000. The young woman explained that she needed the money to supplement her scholarship, and then inexplicably proclaimed, "I have morals!"
We are a nation of gluttons. About one-third of adults in the U.S are obese...
There is no better index for America's moral degradation than television programming...entertainment and instruction have devolved into shock and novelty. The networks are locked in a downward spiral to see who can provide the most outrageous and offensive programming. It's not their fault. They're just giving the American people what they want.
We are oblivious to the fact that our society is intellectually and artistically bankrupt. Modern art is not good enough to be bad...
Our popular music is a painful cacophony of obnoxious dissonance...We have advanced technology, but do we use it to uplift ourselves? No, we indulge the animal side of our natures. The internet is mostly used for downloading pornography or playing video games.
In America today, everyone is entitled to everything...Nobody is responsible for anything, and no one wants to pay the bills.
...everyone has the right to not be offended, and no one can be held accountable for anything...
We celebrate homosexuality and then wonder why sexually transmitted diseases are exploding...According to the CDC, men-who-have-sex-with-men make up only two percent of the population but account for 53 percent of all new HIV infections and 64 percent of all new syphilis cases.
...The nation that began with freedom of religion has progressed to freedom from religion, freedom from moral constraint, and freedom from responsibility...
It is only our blind vanity that lets us pretend that the United States can endure forever. Rome fell, and so will America. For all intents and purposes, it is already over.
