Many Americans today look out the windows of their self-centered, narcissistic lives and say, “How did we get to this point in our country?” To ask the question is to answer it. Because of our day’s stormy and dreary moral and social climate, people begin to look for scapegoats for all their ills. They rarely start by looking in the mirror.

Americans today - more so than at any other time - are mostly oblivious and ignorant of history and the changing philosophies of what brought us to this point. They are stuck in the mire of today’s social climate and cannot see past it. It is difficult to see when immersed in a rapidly decaying cultural environment.

When government schools were instituted in the 19th century.

We should work to abolish them.

It was left for the Baby Boomer generation - the most pampered, spoiled and narcissistic generation of Americans

I would agree the boomers were more pampered, spoiled and narcissistic than their parents, but the subsequent generations have them beat.

When moral and ethical training is put aside to better educate, life go into a downward spiral. Ever incresing in speed and depth.

You are so right. Government schools deliberately produce ignorant, easily controlled dullards who pay attention to American Idol but are oblivious to the soft tyranny all around them.

Prayer being removed was a result of a turn to toward post Christian America than began after WWW1.

In a day when we are saying, “to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits”, (Isa 30:10) such a word is needed.

The role played in raising up children in the way they should NOT go is underestimated.

Dewey became the father of modern American education, and he and his disciples worked to change the basic moral belief system that undergirded the moral educational system, in which [when the Engel v. Vitale case was decided] an estimated 75% of the school systems in the South had religious services and Bible readings (Colliers 1961 Yearbook p. 224). http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/CauseEffect.html

Having much the same thoughts at that article, i began collecting stats a few years ago, quantifying America’s War with GOD. http://peacebyjesus.witnesstoday.org/RevealingStatistics.html
