Abstract:

It happened so subtly that few people noticed at first. Little by little, morality and freedom started to crumble. It came first in government, in education, in the media -- and finally it began to shake our families and our own lives. The author shows why this has happened. First, he shows how we have failed to understand the problem -- to see that the whole foundation for society has shifted radically from its original Judeo-Christian basis to a humanistic basis. Second, he calls for a massive movement -- in government, law and all of life -- to reestablish the Judeo-Christian foundation and turn the tide of moral decadence and loss of freedom.
