I have shared Bill Whittle’s videos before, and I probably will again, but this one strikes a nerve with me, because it aligns so closely to my own belief set. When personal responsibility leaves us, and we believe the government will take care of our every need it is inevitable that we will lose our right to self govern.
It has been left to institutions to attempt to provide the moral basis for society. When I joined the Air Force it was assumed we shared a common set of values, and it wasn’t necessary to write them down. Now we do, because so few receive them at home.
· Integrity first
· Service before self
· Excellence in all we do
