It’s clear that the true problems of our nation are much deeper… deeper than gasoline lines or energy shortages – deeper, even, than inflation or recession. Too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption. Human identity is no longer defined by what one does but by what one owns. And we’ve discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our longing for meaning. We’ve learned that piling up material goods cannot fill the emptiness of lives which have no confidence or purpose. Mr President, we’re in trouble. What can we do? First of all, we must face the truth and then we can change our course. If you lead Mr President, we will follow.
