17. Are we a country of laws or of men?

It seems like being a "man" has a completely different connotation than when I grew up. When I was young a "man" was honest, took care of his family, and was proud to be a decent member of society. It has a completely different connotation today. Today's "man" could just as well be a gun toting, ignorant cretin who thinks "might is right" and has no qualms about screwing over everyone in his path, just so he gets what he wants.

I still prefer the former, but it seems so many males in this era are content to take the easy way out and dwell in the latter. Of course they have negative role models like Trump, and countless right-wing misanthropes who hate everything under the sun to emulate. Role models certainly have changed since my youth.
