WHEN YOU HAVE THE WORST RULING CLASS IN YOUR HISTORY, NO INSTITUTION IS IMMUNE FOREVER: Elite Moral Decline Affecting Military.

As ethical standards slide across the American political system, the country has come to depend more and more on the integrity of its people in uniform. But the military cannot be immune to the cultural slide away from the higher moral standards of past generations.

The overwhelming majority of men and women in the U.S. military who hold themselves to the highest personal and professional standards. But over time those numbers will decrease—unless American society as a whole can recover the moral balance that was once a defining characteristic of this country.

We cannot walk away from the moral and spiritual foundations of American greatness without losing our freedom and power and wealth. It is clear enough today that from the White House down, too many people in public life are unwilling to make the sacrifices and enforce the standards that a free society demands.

Well, the “White House” in question here wasn’t the Trump White House, but rather one based in the the “rules are for the little people” environment that we’ve known for so long.

And note that the wrongdoers are members of the “intelligence community.”
