NICKY MORGAN KNOWS THAT GOOD CHARACTER IS ESSENTIAL

The basis of personal well being and social order is the honing of good character.

As traditional religious observance has declined and religious dogmas have been undermined, a generation has been left adrift, clinging pitifully to the transitory life rafts of social media and celebrity froth.

It is essential that society develops a new non religious narrative espousing the virtues of self control, personal discipline, community engagement, altruism and a commitment to cooperative equitable living and trading.
