Our society has become what

Our society has become what it is because most of its men and women no longer have, and live by a code of honor. Our men have become feminized impersonations of real men, and our women have lost the very thing that made them the special beings God created them to be. Our sons and daughters don't know how to become men and women because there's hardly anyone left to teach them. The grandparents and great grandparents who knew how are mostly dead, and our young people are left with no one to teach them the values on which our great country was founded. Today, money comes first and principles and honor are second. Our society has been on a collision course with disaster ever since its men and women lost the knowledge and understanding of what it means to be true men and women. Equality of the sexes doesn't mean that men and women become like each other. It simple means we all have the right to be what God created us to be without ridicule or oppression. Our society may be lost because men and women have become lost to each other. Our world is built on a foundation of money and false ideas of equality of the sexes. As money loses its value, so has the American family. It's almost extinct.
