Don't worry, Ms Loudon. Honor and virtue may well make a comeback. Remember that the roaring 20s was considered a time of debauchery with behavior by young women never seen before. It was a wild time. But the great depression seemed to usher in a time of modesty and much better behavior and the 1940s would be the height of honor and virtue with the WWII generation.

As before, it will happen during times of national strife. In order to survive, the producers will find that it is easier to not get shot if you're polite. Meanwhile the moochers will continue to whine and demand their "fair share".

An excerpt from Ladies and Gentlemen: Why the Survival of Our Republic Depends on the Revival of Honor, by Dr. Gina Loudon and Dr. Dathan Paterno.

Lady and gentleman are somewhat familiar terms, for sure. We hear them from magicians and carnival emcees. Billboard advertising manipulates those words into a twisted description of strip clubs. We sometimes view examples of them on quaint Hallmark films. Our children even study literary characters with these names (e.g., Lady Macbeth).

But rarely do we hear the terms used to teach or uphold virtues. When was the last time you heard a parent say...
