The Moral Infrastructure

Thank you Mr. Sowell. This article is right on. "Public virtue cannot exist in a Nation without private Virtue, and public Virtue is the only Foundation of Republics." John Adams "Neither in this or any other issue can the Constitution protect us if we don't protect the Constitution." "If we don't vote out of office, or impeach, those who violate the Constitution, or who refuse to enforce the law, the steady erosion of Constitutional protections will ultimately render it meaningless. ... the crumbling of the moral infrastructure is no less deadly." "... the first lines of defense, beginning with the moral principles taught at home and upheld by families, schools, and communities."

The "Occupy" movement, which the Obama administration and much of the media have embraced, has implications that reach far beyond the passing sensation it has created.

The unwillingness of authorities to put a stop to their organized disruptions of other people's lives, their trespassing, vandalism and violence is a de facto suspension, if not repeal, of the 14th Amendment's requirement that the government provide "equal protection of the laws" to all its citizens.

How did the "Occupy" movement acquire such immunity from the laws that the rest of us are expected to obey? Simply by shouting politically correct...
