If They Had Lived Up To The Responsibilities That Went With The Privileges (Podcast)

The distinguishing feature of our “leaders” today is their near total disregard for putting the mission ahead of themselves.  They are unwilling to risk their careers to make the hard calls that would truly benefit society.  And because of their moral cowardice, all of us suffer.  We see this played out over and over.  In this podcast we examine an anecdote from the experience of one POW in the Second World War, and discuss its lessons.  When leaders betray their oaths and their offices, the betrayal extends beyond their immediate radius of control:  they betray future generations as well, the young people who were looking to them for protection and guidance.
