"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
I think only the media has convinced us that common decency is vanishing.
As for some who comment on this thread, the far far right wing and far far left wing sometimes become so lost in platitudes that they become amoral (as opposed to immoral) people. They no longer possess morality, only platitudes and slogans that can lead to indecency - calling it "principle."

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
This still doesn't explain how it's a "victory" for the OWS.
