The main obstacle in dealing with most of my fellow Americans is how absent of moral compass they have become. Their actions have shrunk to the size of their intellects. They genuflect toward goodness, but overlook the blood constantly spilled in their names. To them, honesty has become a naive anachronism; profitable ways to circumvent the law are now admired. How lost people are, how absolutely certain of their own ignorance, how they lie to themselves. As long as their addictions and compulsions are sated, they are stunningly willing to fight to the death for ideas they do not thoroughly comprehend.
