Which leads me to the concept of honour. Neglected, abused, dying of starvation in this society. Like a god that has lost its worshippers, honour has faded into a shadow of its former self.
What happened to honour? When did modern North America become the land of sociopaths? To quote Rosie DiManno from the March 23rd Toronto Star, writing on a far more tragic subject...”The absence of conscience is a non-correctible disfigurement of character. There is no effective treatment. In a word: Guiltlessness. More words: Remorseless, deceitful, manipulative, self-centred, callous, unscrupulous, emotionally shallow.”
Is it the overwhelming prevalence of vulgar, shallow American television programming? Can’t blame the CBC, no one watches it...except I loved The Tudors. One would be hard-pressed to find a more vicious, self-centred, callous group. Although I must thank Henry for freeing us from the Vatican, and eventually opening the way for agnostics and atheists alike.
But I digress. Back to honour...character...and the lack of it.
I know the dishonourable can look in the mirror in the morning, because they have no remorse.
How are morality and conscience eradicated from people’s minds?
