Progressives have turned the education system into leftist indoctrination centers, patriotism into jingoism, moral values into sexist, racist, intolerant, and rule of law into rule of man. Freedom comes with responsibility, actions had consequences and words meant something. Nowadays everything is relative, there is no real right and wrong because it all depends on the perspective of the individual. Many people want the freedom to do anything they want with no consequences.The Loss of Trust
