TOPIC: The World War Two "Greatest Generation" was honored with the title: "The Moral Conscience of America". Having subdued the three diabolically Satanic "Axis" countries that sought to enslave or exterminate whole populations based on race, religion or ehtnicity, the 'Greatest Generation' returned home after the war to install a new culture of moral and social values that, within two decades, achieved what the past two hundred years in the United States failed to achieve: The Voting Rights Act, End of Segregation, Establishing a national Education System, improving American highways, securing America's forestry heritage, putting a man on the moon, advancing health and elderly maintenance under Social Security and MediCare... just to name a few.

But as the Greatest Generation passes daily before our eyes we now see attacks on all of the advances and progress fought for and achieved by that Generation. And worse, during our last national election we witnessed assaults even on our democracy as certain groups worked to deny the Constitutional right of voting to other Americans... much as the enemies America defeated during WW2 hoped to dominate, control and reduce to poorly paid, if not unpaid, laborers after their elections were corrupted then terminated.

But even worse among the above attacks on the progress and successes of the Greatest Generation, our country has witnessed brutal attacks by military-imposters dressed in battle gear and armed with military-like weapons assaulting and murdering innocent people. The most tragic of these attacks occured just recently upon children in their school... some as young as five years old.

With the passing of the Greatest Generation America has not -- yet -- seen post-WW2 veterans assume the leadership roles their fathers chose and fulfilled. Many veterans organizations today appear to devote more time to planning vacations in 'Sin Cities' and no time to community organizing or value teaching. Many post-WW2 veterans, rather than position themselves as balanced voices seeking what is best for all Americans in the long-term, are instead taking sharply partisan postisions that incite and increase public divisions.

Veterans magazines and other publications are today now filled more with advertising than social messaging and advocacy. The failure of post-WW2 veterans to maintain their father's generation moral and ethical values has led to war crimes committed by today's military youth, sexual assaults on female comrades, an inability to win wars quickly and decisively, and senior military officers participating in activities that were once publicly common among the undisciplined, immoral and amoral.

Military Service was, in the past, traditionally held up as the highest level of public service. And a nation's military veterans maintained that level of dignity by ensuring that the public conscience was of the highest practice both in social and personal life.

When a nation loses its military veteran conscience, that nation ensures its demise not from external invasion but from internal degradation.
