Finding the Right Answers
Guest Post by Dick Warn
Searching for the right answers isn’t easy. It seems as if we are living in minefields of myths.
Confucius (BC 551-479, Chinese philosopher) said, “The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell.”
William Penn (1644-1718, British religious leader) said, “Right is right, even if everyone is against it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it.”
We, the thinking, well-meaning people of the United States, have been sold so many silly myths that our nation is falling apart at the seams. The true value of any law, statute or program can be found only in the results of its application. Our public schools, compared with others in the world, are truly failing to provide a quality, competitive education for our young, and our long list of welfare programs are actually expanding the number of poor, while the fat cats who create new rules fill their pockets with other people’s money.
Oscar Wilde (1856-1900, British author) said, “The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast.”
So many self-centered people have been elected to positions they cannot fill that our political system is totally broken. From where I sit, it’s like watching a train-wreck.
What can be done? The most impactful solution demands that each of us adopt West Point’s original code of honor as our own personal creed: “I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor tolerate those who do.”
The primary causes of our political problems are ignorance and greed. Truth, and only truth, will set us free.
