Wow. Just wow. Justice Souter places the lack of civics knowledge is the culprit. Puc’s been saying this all along. In school, Civics class, was one of the most important lessons to be learned. (Definition of “civics”: The branch of political science that deals withcivic affairs and the rights and duties of citizens.) It was all-encompassing in that it taught the ins-and-outs of government and its 3 (yes THREE) branches of government, history of men and women who contributed greatly to our country’s values and decency, local government, civic duty, civility, etc. Have a listen.
Justice David Souter & Contra-Education
PuC thinks it’s time to teach “ethics” in school, again, too. That’s how I was brought up. What’s good for me is good for you. Because we were created equal. Heh heh. Get it? “Ethics” – A set of principles of right conduct. A theory or a system of moral values: “An ethic of service is at war with a craving for gain”(Gregg Easterbrook). A subject I’m sure I’ll have to dodge some tomatoes *tricksy titters*
