What Me Worry?

In this land of freedom, ... [many of us] jealously guard our right to do as we please; we [want to] keep the rules few and simple. Yet confronted by school shootings and terrorist attacks, promiscuity and irresponsible parents, lying politicians and greedy evangelists, ... [others] plead for more standards, tougher laws, real accountability. ... In such an environment, discussion of laws and standards conjures up anxiety, confusion, frustration, resignation or anger. (J. Marshall Jenkins in The Upper Room Disciplines - 2003, 13 September) 26 February 2013
