SOCIETY'S DISHONESTY MIRRORED IN YOUTH

Evidently we're not satisfied with what we see in young America, but let's not blame them. Let's scrutinize our contributions.

We parents cheat on our income taxes and each other. We bend rules and cut corners to get ahead. Our congressmen and senators cheat the voters by masking our federal debt with smoke-and-mirror accounting. Our educators cheat us out of a better education by lowering standards.

Our judicial system is very questionable when it comes to an ordinary criminal and a white-collar criminal.

As a society, we must show that dishonesty will not be tolerated and our values should be judged by our ability to reason and communicate as opposed to a grade-point average.

Unless we change our standards, we shouldn't expect any more from young America than what we have been getting.
