I've been thinking about this talk a lot lately. So shockingly true.
Where do we draw lines when we have no morals? What happens to our society when we don't even know what morals are? Where are our limits? Do we live in a world of anything goes? Such things as honesty and integrity cannot stand without some kind of internal understanding and desire to be moral people. Who can you trust if no one has any limits or inner code to live by? If you can't trust anyone, how can you be truly happy? Or, for that matter, how can you be happy if you know that you yourself can't be trusted? How do we even trust ourselves?
How can we turn this trend around? Are we teaching our kids morals? How do we teach them if we're not willing to live them ourselves?
Maybe it's time to stop the trend--the erosion. What are your limits? What will you and won't you do? Maybe it's time for us to stop waiting for someone else to step up and be first. Maybe it's time to create some personal rules; some values to live by.
It's time to end the downward spiral.
