There is a proverb of old that declares, “righteousness exalts a nation.” America was made great because it was founded with strong moral fiber and religious fervor and freedom. America is the champion of capitalism, but capitalism can only succeed when it is accompanied by a strong moral ethic. When morality erodes, capitalism generates a society of self-seeking, self-indulgent, self-centered greedy gusto-grabbers. “Sin is a reproach to any people”, so the proverb continues. But when a populace is self-absorbed, it fails to notice that foundation has collapsed and ruin is upon them. Israel reached such a condition that “even though Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, as I live, says the Lord, they would deliver neither son nor daughter; only themselves.” Worse yet, I see no Noahs, Daniels or Jobs among us.
