Wall Of Shame?

"I wonder if an invisible wall of shame is being built around this nation in the name of liberation. Have we fallen for a counterfeit freedom that is locking us into a prison of hopeless depravity? Are we becoming a people ruled by the ever-changing winds of general consensus in which each person does what is right in his or her own eyes?

In this liberated age have we forgotten that freedom by itself is never free—is never enough? It must always be accompanied by responsibility. No society in history ever survived when its rights became separated from its responsibilities. Has our nation’s newly acquired lifestyle enticed us into a perverted sense of freedom so that now we are held fast in a prison of liberation?"

Hope MacDonald, The Flip Side of Liberation: A Call to Traditional Values, p. 14
