Rex Tillerson: Our democracy is threatened by a “growing crisis in ethics and integrity.”

Recommended Posts

Tillerson gave the commencement speech at the Virginia Military Institute. There were some interesting quotes on ethics and integrity.

 

“As I reflect upon the state of our American democracy, I observe a growing crisis in ethics and integrity,” Tillerson told the graduates. “If we do not as Americans confront the crisis of ethics and integrity in our society and among our leaders in both public and private sector — and regrettably, at times, even the non-profit sector — then American democracy, as we know it, is entering its twilight years.”

 

"If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts," Tillerson said, "then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom."

 

"A responsibility of every American citizen to each other is to preserve and protect our freedom by recognizing what truth is and is not, what a fact is and is not," Tillerson said in his speech, "and begin by holding ourselves accountable to truthfulness and demand our pursuit of America's future be fact-based — not based on wishful thinking, not hoped-for outcomes made in shallow promises, but with a clear-eyed view of the facts as they are, and guided by the truth that will set us free to seek solutions to our most daunting challenges."

In one ear and out the other. It's too late as it's more likely now that people will read this as a call to action to normalize *their* facts, not *the* facts. That's sadly probably the easiest path of resistance anyway, although of course no side will "win".

 

This is the new normal.

I only see Independents as the saviours for this country. Both sides have lost their minds imo when it comes to not addressing their own corruption. It's sad.

People wouldn't be realizing and admitting this if not for this Trump presidency. 

 

If the other side won, there would be no talk about this and it would have continued without a fucking peep.

 

Facts.

The American voters have made people open their fucking eyes.

 

People nowadays are more focused on what news is real and what's fake/opinion.

 

Now, people are actually focused on what government agencies/officials are doing good and which ones are doing bad.

 

Some will never admit it, but us "retards" that wanted to piss people off and seek a change, is actually going to benefit us going forward.

No, if the other side won we would not be losing power and influence world wide.  And there would not be a president under investigation by a Special Counseul for collusion with the Russians.

Lol. We aren't losing power loser.

 

And being under investigation means nothing when the investigation is bogus.

 

I know your retarded ass disagrees though.

Lol "bogus".  Yet, people in the Trump admin and his associates all keep on getting indicted or accept guilty pleas.

Keep on being in denial though.
