We Must Resist the Temptation to Secession


In face of the great discontent with the current economic and moral crisis we must resist the temptation to simply write off the present system with all its problems. We must avoid the defeatist attitude of those who advocate isolating themselves from society and awaiting better days. In individualist fashion, they would take care of their own little worlds and disregard the cause of the common good.

Nothing could be more contrary to our way of thinking. We cannot abandon our nation in her time of need. It is in times like these that all Americans must show our true mettle; we must resist the selfish option of isolation.  A policy of fragmentation always ends in defeat. Our goal should be that of uniting as many as possible and not shattering the nation into a thousand pieces.

If we leave our country in her time of need what will become of her?
