Crime and Drug Solutions
Drugs, crime and violence only thrive in a culture that has lost clear concepts of right and wrong. Getting The Way to Happiness into people's hands and its moral code into use reduces these factors.
The Pursuit of a Safe Society
What frequently gets overlooked in the "battle against crime" is that increases in crime statistics are almost universally preceded by a widespread moral decay in society.
"Morals are the rules by which society exhorts [encourages] (as laws are rules by which it seeks to compel) its members and associations to behavior consistent with its order, security, and growth," wrote historians Will and Ariel Durant. "A little knowledge of history stresses the variability of moral codes and concludes that they are negligible because they differ in time and place, and sometimes contradict each other. A larger knowledge stresses the universality of moral codes, and concludes to their necessity."
Knocking Out Drugs, Crime & Violence
The epidemic of juvenile crime very definitely has been preceded by rampant deterioration of moral values among youth In a study published in 1992, for instance, the Joseph & Edna Josephson Institute of Ethics found 61% of all high school students admitted to having cheated on an exam once or more during the last year. As well, 33% confessed to having stolen from parents or relatives at least once in the same period. And the actual figures might even be higher than this, as many of the youngsters surveyed also admitted that they lied in the poll.
