No role models left for young
Surely the modern world cannot become any more distorted. The Pope was a member of the Hitler Youth Movement; members of religious organisations are engaged in sex scandals; the bankers are responsible for the world-wide credit crunch; politicians are involved in financial and sexual scandals; sports stars are at the centre of sex scandals and no area of society now seems unblemished.
The world and society are disintegrating at the seams. Young people no longer have suitable role models to look up to.
