“Lord of the Flies” Becoming Stark Reality?

What’s happing to young people in America? What discourages or at minimum what does not contribute to the basest behavior being expressed by human beings? Do we need more secularism, American Idol, reality shows, violent video games, sexual confusion pandered by the MSM and “educators” to benefit youth? We long ago outlawed the Bible, prayer and Christianity from schools. Are we surprised at what we are beginning to see in society? Do we understand what perverts, degrades and make lawless, moral-less young people, and how such destroys the future and freedoms of the Nation?

“You cannot make men good by law: and without good men you cannot have a good society.”C. S. Lewis

Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.” John Adams

Lord of the Flies – “Lord of the Flies is a novel by Nobel Prize-winning author William Golding about a group of British schoolboys stuck on a deserted island who try to govern themselves, with disastrous results. Its stances on the already controversial subjects of human nature and individual welfare versus the common good earned it position 68 on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 1990–1999.”

“At an allegorical level, the central theme is the conflicting impulses toward civilization—live by rules, peacefully and in harmony—and towards the will to power. Different subjects include the tension between groupthink and individuality, between rational and emotional reactions, and between morality and immorality. How these play out, and how different people feel the influences of these, form a major subtext of Lord of the Flies.
