We’re approaching the 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  December 7th 1941, was indeed a day that would live in infamy.  Only a few survivors remain.  They must feel dismay when they observe our current culture.

Values that have survived centuries of human experience are under assault.  Millions of people expect to receive a government check for repetitive breathing and no productive work.  They are chronically angry and resentful but confused as to why.  Again, our World War II veterans must be near despair.

The brave men who fought for our survival understand the importance of hard work, discipline, honor, and common sense.  Some of the “elites” in our country could use a few reminders:

  • Success is earned.  So is freedom.
  • A sense of shame over bad behavior is a good thing.
  • Weakness invites evil and aggression.
  • True honor seeks to serve others.
  • Tyrants, terrorists, and criminals cannot see the pain they cause others.
  • True liberty is not licentiousness.  True liberty is the right to do what we ought to do.
  • To misunderstand the nature of evil is to risk being overcome by it.
  • Elitists always play a major role in the collapse of any society.
  • Victimhood (not a characteristic of World War II veterans) allows you to blame every failure you will ever have on someone else.
  • Fear is contagious, but so is courage.

We are the greatest, freest country on earth despite the efforts of a malevolent few.  The 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor should remind us all of that.
