Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
This latest contretemps leaves me at a loss for words (almost). It seems we are in an age where many of the established institutions we look to for ideological leadership are being challenged, and justifiably so. And even if you leave off the 'ideo' there is a real attack on logical leadership as well, from many sides of the media.
We are left with the principles and not the symbols, and it will be interesting to see if we can make do with the principles alone. People seem to need guides and representatives, 'icons' of the principles as steers and guides.
