This study makes a determined effort to examine the declining moral standards that constantly weaken our civilized society, showing us how to restore our grip on the importance of etiquette, personal discipline and respect for others. It fulfills the purpose of showing us how to regain our core fundamentals in order to achieve happiness and self-fulfillment in modern society, and that it is never too late for a positive and life enriching change.
Unfortunately, we rarely consider our limited and finite resources in connection with our needs for the future. If and when we finally do, it may be too late to recover them. No effort is spared in this book to highlight the issues that require immediate attention. We must be conscious of our flora and fauna, our environment and ecosystem, our community and society and the consequences of the stress that we impose on our planet.
Here, outlined, we find the false and distorted sense of freedom, privacy and security we now live in. However, education and knowledge enlighten our common sense and provide the power to strengthen our resilience, so necessary for our survival. We realize that wisdom is achieved through knowledge, hard work and the passage of time. The result could well be tolerance and respect amongst us all.
