Can this statement relate to any problems that we have today in America? Explain.

Our fathers gave us many laws, which they had learned from their fathers. These laws were good. They told us to treat all people as they treated us; that we should never be the first to break a bargain; that is was a disgrace to tell a lie; that we should speak only the truth.

Well I had to think about this for a while, to see if it related to America today; Maybe more of a resolution than a problem, like President Obama's speech, saying you should treat others the way you want to be treated. Only speaking the truth, he did his best to help the U.S. by going by parts of this quote. There could possibly have been bargains that were broken by other countries with this country as a problem that relates to America.. Then again I am unsure if this quote really relates. Am I correct??

    Of course it relates to many aspects of today's American life.

    How many people do you know who don't treat everyone fairly?

    What about the crooks who cheated their clients out of large amounts of money in their investments?

    What about the bankers who lent money to people they knew couldn't repay these loans?

    What about the many people who lie?
