Founders Understood... You need a moral society for the Republic to survive...

  1. At least 50% of Americans (and illegal inhabitants) lack the morals for us to survive... and the Left, being such themselves, "make their living" off of the immoral and ignorant. I don't know how we survive this...

    :mad: :mad:
  2. Then show some initiative and stop surviving, already.
  3. Ricter


    Scat, this is a good point, but I think you blow it by putting it primarily on the left. You know usury is considered immoral, for example, if you know what I'm getting at.

    Anyway, Adam Smith, the so-called father of "greed is good", believed this as well, and the first big book he wrote was a kind of Pt. 1 to his Wealth of Nations, called The Theory of Moral Sentiments. This first book makes it clear that he did not think greed was good. I think he meant self interest is good.
