Samuel Proctor: My Moral Odyssey Mar 27, 2009
Samuel Proctor's book, My Moral Odyssey, provides much food for thought. When looking at the changes that have occurred in American society since the early 1900's what should have been apparent all along finally becomes clear, providing very plausible reasons for the violence, the cheating, the laziness . . . it all makes sense. And once you see the causes, the remedy becomes obvious. For those brave enough to have their own values and lifestyle challenged, this is a great read. I highly recommend it to everyone, especially parents, educators and anyone who cares about the direction our society is headed.
