Honor, not the stupid useless honors courses, classes, frats, sororities and other academic groups. There is no honor in academia. In fact it often seems that society could get rid of academia and still do just fine, that’s another discussion though.
True honor needs to come back to society. This feeling of honor was one of the many good things to disappear from society in this “post-modern” world and it needs to be brought back. Not necessarily nationalistic, just personal honor and groups that support that honor.
Everyone needs to feel that they are bound to an honor code of some sort. This by itself would lead to a lot of things getting sorted out in the U.S. we all felt honor-bound to either do or avoid certain actions and truly felt pride in having this honor we would end up doing or avoiding those actions. It just seems to me that a true honor society that you have to work at to join and stay in is needed for everyone.
