“The only foundation of a free Constitution, is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our people, in a greater measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers, and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty.” —John Adams, letter to Zabdiel Adams, 1776


About todaysawareness

The site, “beawaretoday”, is a unique prospective, as if looking down from 30,000 feet at the world of Local, National, and Foreign Affairs. Most people go through each day only seeing what is immediately affecting them and most only have a vision for dealing with their issues of only about 5 to 7 days. With, “beawaretoday”, we look at what is happening around the World and what I call the Domino Effect, to project problems that are forthcoming so that people can plan ahead to deal with them vs. dealing the alternative. I created the blog, “beawaretoday” so that I could share a forum to discuss, Current, Domestic and Foreign Affairs that affect us all through the Domino effect. I encourage you to join the Discussions or at least enjoy reading the content. Thank you, Tom Campbell

    The problem we face today, in light of that quote, is a pluralistic/naturalistic culture. What was understood to be virtuous in John Adams’ day is no longer the norm. As a matter of fact, the “norm” is always changing. The “pure virtue” Adams referenced was based on an objective standard, but today’s society refuses to accept any objective standards, much less absolutes. The antinomian, anarchist mentality of so many of our youth will ultimately lead our country back into the grips of totalitarianism.

    • I pray that you are wrong, and that the youth have had the quidance from their parents to straighten out what is now effectivly destroying our Great Nation Today
