I was born too late to experience the horrors and deprivations of the first two World Wars (1914-18 and 1941-45).
But I’ve read enough history to realize that any talk about World War III must be serious–especially with nuclear weapons.
Since the recent killing of Qassem Soleimani, the terrorist head of the Iran’s elite Quds Force, some commentators have stated that Donald Trump brought us to the brink of World War III.
That would be ugly.
But I know of another World War III that could be far more devastating than atomic bombs…
Is there any doubt that Hollywood, for the past three generations, has strongly influenced the morals of the West as well as the entire world?
Both films and their stars have used the power of media-story-telling to encourage sex outside of marriage, promote numerous progressive causes and generally turn Western culture away from faith and purity to secular relativism in all its forms.

In today’s article, I had already planned to discuss this problem from an unusual angle.
We the People–and our desperate need for a renewal of virtue.
