The Culture of Kindness

What is the "Culture of Kindness"? The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language defines culture as "The totality of socially transmitted behavior patterns, arts, beliefs, institutions, and all other products of human work and thought." This column is dedicated to the belief that the ethical underpinning of a peaceful "culture of kindness" can and should be the concept that "kindness and compassionate love for others" has the highest value.

Note that this column was previously called "The Culture of Heart." I have changed the name in order to create a more specific focus.

Fidelity & True Love
Perhaps one of the more devastating results of the free sex revolution of the 1960's has been the damage to the conceptual reasons to be faithful to one's spouse. After all, as many people succinctly stated, the animals do it with anyone they wish, so why shouldn't we? more

Murderers Have No Right to be Free
(originally published in "The Richmond Republican", Vol. 2, No. 1, Winter, 1993-1994)
A life sentence without parole revolves around one simple question. Will the murderer kill again? This is a question of risk management. Beyond the opinions of countless experts lies the possibility that yes, the murderer will kill again. Because of this, the right of the murderer to be free pales in comparison to the rights of citizens to be alive. The calculation of risk must be weighted in favor of a citizen's right to live, and to not be murdered. Even a 1% risk makes parole unacceptable. more
Our National Purpose: America and the World of True Peace
Initially presented at the "Victory and Welcome Home Rally for the Troops" Sponsored by the Desert Storm Support Network
Today, many nations are at peace because of the contribution of America and other nations that served the world. However, we have not had a perfect record. It is always safe to say that we could have helped a people or a nation more than we did. The vital question at this time is, "What can America continue to do to help build a world of true peace?" more
