The basic guide posts by which we have framed social values are being outpaced by societal development. Might it be that the very stories our families needed themselves, to be passed down to their offspring, no longer serve as bedrocks upon which to build?
If the very myths society has anchored itself around are no longer followed, might their values and ethics also no longer have a defined meaning, a place in our world? Might we be at risk of becoming a lost society? And, that is why we find ourselves needing ethics courses?
