    First you indict the 20th century, and hail those before it. Then I show you limitations in the 19th century, and then you start attacking that. You're just arguing a point to make a point that you have no basis to conclude

    You couldn't enforce morals. You haven't the resources to begin with. Second of all, what you call fortitude, Americans call tyranny. Should the moral codes have been greatly enforced, you would have seen action against that in the 1790s: I suspect primarily by farmers, including your hero, Andrew Jackson.

    Actually, our nation IS, indeed, currently enforcing a standard of morals, values, and gender roles.

    And that standard is that individuals, not the state, determine such things.

    Which is why our nation is as great as it is, and can be much greater.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    So technology and surviability determine gender roles. And it's a natural process you can't control.

    I would, in fact, suggest the exact opposite.

    Call it whatever you want, and it IS enforecable, in the right system. It works pretty well in large parts of the Middle East to this very day.

    Exactly.

    And it is up to each individual to choose for themselves what it is they should do.

    And your suggestion would be wrong.

    Did you ever consider America's geographic lengths a symptom of its inability to use resources to do such a thing? Or how the mechanisms for totalitarianism did not entirely exist until the early 20th century?

    Face it, man, your idealistic platitudes are a dream world devoid of any historical or political reality.

    You mean the part of the world where there is the most populist uprising against such enforcement that has ever happened in history and won't last?

    That's fantasy. Wanting to believe in a better place, things that don't exist... fairies.
