In this present era which we find ourselves, the moral decay that is swirling around us is having a deleterious effect upon freedom, as people are no longer informed or aware of the core principles which secure it, and thus, without any resistance, they unknowingly allow them to slip away. Ronald Reagan once said that “The American dream is not that every man must be level with every other man.
