"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

While I thoroughly agree with the moral decay of our country, some of these are a stretch at best.

Highest rate of infection?  Highest REPORTED rate maybe.

Many others that are quite questionable when you really consider what they are actually saying.

The thing that disturbs me the most is not the moral decay, but the decay in capability, particularly among young people.  I have been teaching at the college level for 20 years and I have seen a noticeable decline in basic math and English skills among college students.  Over the same period educators have become completely invested in pedagogy that focuses on collaboration rather than competition, group learning rather than individualized learning.  Academics are ideologically wedded to this new pedagogy, and there are, of course, many published papers in the social sciences "proving" that these new approaches "work."  And yet student performance continues to decline.

Exposing the true reasons for the decline would require exposing the liberal bias of educators, and acknowledging that much of the academic literature in the social sciences is fraudulent.  That will never happen.  It would be like asking evangelicals to proclaim the bible a lie.

An STD could be anything from a yeast infection to AIDS.  We probably do have a high percentage of low grade STD's in the USA, but the problem is much more severe in places like Africa, where high grade STD's are more prevalent.

In my 20+ years of teaching in residential facilities, with kids having IQ from 120+ to 60-, I saw the exact same thing.  I also saw an unwillingness to take on new tasks or challenge themselves increase; they followed the laws of fluids, the path of least resistance.
