Our media has been proclaiming the death of this or that for decades. The death of Reason, which came after the death of Unreason. (Reason never had a chance.) Marx proclaimed the Death of Capitalism. Reagan talked about the death of Communism. There was the death of the Republican Party, followed by the death of the Democratic Party – which was never very democratic, if you know what I mean.
Unfortunately, there’s a different death, that I want to talk about.
The Death of Goodness.
And no, I’m not talking about morality. That died a long time ago. No, I’m talking about goodness as something that people want to see themselves as.
