The Power of Honesty

Few people ever have the courage or desire to admit when something is wrong.á This usually persists until such time as the problem becomes a crisis that engulfs and destroys far more than it would have when it was still just a problem.á The world is a changing place and one of the changes seems to be that, as a nation, the United States has post its way.á Selfishness, greed, lack of genuine compassion have all contributed to a lessening of this nation as a worthy development created by the Founding Fathers.á There is a wonderful scene from the first episode of the HBO series Newsroom which clearly and bluntly states where much, though not all, of this nations problems have developed. This episode should be required viewing, as uncomfortable as it might be, for anyone who persists in resting on the laurels of the past and blithely parroting the belief that the US is the best nation on Earth.á That may have been true once, but given the recent state of government and politics, no one can or should believe this myth.á I invite anyone to view this clip and post an intelligent response.á We need more intelligent responses, believe me.
