Who is Your Role Model?

Much can be determined about a nation’s ideals and future welfare by the character of its models.  Who are the most admired people in America?  Spiritual leaders, civic leaders, altruistic social reformers?  Hardly.  The heroes and idols of America are actors and actresses, jetsetters and yacht owners, entertainers and rock stars.  With a glass of wine or a joint in one hand, and somebody else’s mate in the other, they prance, jiggle, curse, and swindle their way into the hearts of Americans.  Our homage to such celebrities tells us as much about us—and our probably destiny—as it does them.
