[QUOTE=GreenGeek;4499034]Recently I was at an airport in Norfolk Virginia. While there, I saw a scene
that made me think about the evolution of values in the US.
An older gray-haired military officer was being patted down by a young TSA
agent. My thoughts turned to the value systems that drove each of these
gentlemen in their choice of careers.
[list][*] The officer chose a career in which one offers their life to preserve freedom.[*] The agent chose a career that limits freedom to preserve lives.[/list]
Somehow this seems an apt metaphor for the direction that the system
of values underpinning our society is trending. Your thoughts?[/QUOTE]
This iappend appens when you try and make people "symbols."
more often than not I would say people choose careers be cause they need jobs.
I doubt the TSA guys woke up one morning and said: " I want a career that limits freedom."
