Now… And Then

Now we allow our children to be exposed to every imaginable perversion, which is being used by our enemies to destroy us.

Exhibit A:

***

Contrast that with the past, when boys of 12 or so were awarded medals for saving lives at great risk to their own.

Exhibit B: the original Boy Scout Handbook from 1911, http://www.gutenberg.org/files/29558/29558-h/29558-h.htm

It’s a fascinating read. It provides a detailed look back into a time when American boys were taught to become men.
