My fear is there’s coming a time in our culture when tribute is no longer paid, because we’ll no longer have any virtues. You see, there’s a huge difference between the lack of virtue, (or an imperfect practice of virtue), and the lack of the knowledge of virtue, (or the lack of belief in virtue). We’re quickly getting to a place where there are no more standards, no more principles, no absolutes in which people put their faith.
We may finally reach a place in our society where there are no more hypocrites. However, that will not be a good day.
Take Away: Our immortality is a recognition, at least, that we believe in morality.
