Here’s a blog post that puts the current NC controversy into historical perspective. Rome began to rot when wealth and power began to eat away at the traditions and values of the republic. You only have to look around to see what is going on in our society. A society that isn’t socially responsible can’t be morally responsible nor fiscally responsible.
The problem is that when you’ve overthrown social mores, as this writer says, you will overthrow the political mores and the economic rules. Then there will be an inevitable reaction. It won’t be fun.
