It has been 22 years since the publication of Robert Bork's "Slouching Toward Gomorrah ". I was reminded of that book when reading your post.

Judge Bork wrote: "Only religion can accomplish for a modern society what tradition, reason, and empirical observation cannot. Christianity and Judaism provide the major premises of moral reasoning by revelation and by the stories in the Bible. There is no need to attempt the impossible task of reasoning your way to first principles. Those principles are accepted as given by God."

There is a lesson in there somewhere.

I agree, Fred. And the further we get away from those first principles, the more of a mess we create.
