Liars and Theives

30 Aug

No, I don’t mean politicians, at least not specifically. I watched a little kid pocket a candy bar in the grocery checkout after his Mom had told him he couldn’t have it. I’m sure the kid ain’t all evil, but he’s sure off to a good start.

Honesty is a virtue that is rapidly disappearing in our culture. Children are bombarded with people who lie, cheat, and steal their way to prosperity. The governor of South Carolina told everyone he was going on a hike while he was down knocking boots in Argentina. What are kids supposed to take away from that? Sex is so bad that you gotta lie about it? A rich Jew stole $50 billion dollars from many of his rich, Jewish friends. What kinda sense does that make? They were his friends for petesake! The North Korean government says one thing then does the other. Is that written in their constitution?

I really hope the kid gets caught and scolded for his dastardly deed. Maybe he will learn an important lesson about the virtues of honesty, and the evils of thievery. If not, then I fear society may end up paying for that candy bar and others like it in the end.
