13. Here is how morality plays

It has nothing to do with God in the classroom. It has nothing to do with Christmas displays, gay marriage, Hollywood, or video games.

It is the morality of everyone for themselves - rugged individualism, that allows the mentally unbalanced to suffer without treatment and have ready access to weapons. It is the morality that allows economic injustice to reign. It is the morality that takes the dim and makes "reality TV" stars of them (anymore, the dimmer the better). It is the morality that allows a pension fund plunderer to run for President. It is the morality that slices grandma's social security check to fund tax cuts for billionaires. It is all pervasive and inescapable.

There's your problem, right there. It is not the signs and symbols of morality, but the actuality of it as lived
