Modern values

The founding fathers’ core values were:

  • industriousness
  • honesty
  • religiosity
  • marriage

Some have suggested that our straying from these values, especially these last two, as the cause for decline in our country and world in the modern era. But is going back the answer?

Perhaps the more modernized list should be:

  • productivity (let’s a person choose to work smart or hard)
  • honesty (timeless)
  • introspection (whether through religion or other means)
  • financial security and close friends (whether through marriage or not)
