A different timeMany of my liberal friends like to tell me that I am behind the times. I have always taken this "accusation" as a real badge of honor. I am certainly not opposed to appropriate technological advances. Indeed, the very modern advancement of the internet enables me to use this weblog to get out a message, and has enabled a media revolution that has transformed the way we get information.
This march to modernity, however, has come at a cost. The changes in social, political, and religious attitudes have destroyed the family, making marriage a matter of convenience instead of a covenant and children a mere matter of choice rather than a blessing from God.
There was a time in America when our kids did all of the things that the so-called experts of today tell us they should not do. Our world and our country was a different place. Today, we hear the left speak of that time hatefully. All I know of that time was what my Grandparents and my Parents shared with me about it-my Grandfather especially had pretty good recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly.
I always believed it was a better time. When I was a little boy, there were still a few traces of that left. This song makes me think of the kind of world we could have with a few principles-maybe a little modern technology thrown in.
