Dignity and discipline
John Brummett’s column, “Grade on different curve,” has keen insight. He quotes President Clinton, “Work organizes life. … We cannot, I submit to you, repair the American community and restore the American family until we provide the structure, the values, the discipline and the reward that work gives.”
Idleness is indeed the devil’s workshop. We must get people working. I say explore the idea of getting a plan like FDR had in starting the WPA again. Action needs to happen because the status quo is no good. With work brings dignity and discipline.
