Moral character is something that has been lost in our society. Character is defined as the way you act. It portrays who you are on the inside and the outside. You are defined by your character. Are you honest? Do you steal or cheat? Do people trust you to keep your word? In our culture we have elevated ability to a place above character. No one cares if you beat your spouse as long as you do your job well. No one cares if you are a liar as long as you bring in a profit. In our society we should demand people be honest and not cheat, steal, or anything else you can name that is negative. We should demand that the people we hire have character filled with integrity. Today, politicians will say anything to get your vote, but they will want a pass when they are held accountable to their words. Sometimes the very idea that people would expect them to keep their word offends them. How have we gotten so far away from the truth? We lack character and believe being held accountable for our actions and words is unjust and even somehow evil. We must, as a people, embrace those qualities that make us human. Let us not support the liar and the immoral. We should demand that the people we associate with have good character. Bad company corrupts good character.
