Examining history, ancient and modern, this presentation documents how and why morality is essential to preserving and restoring liberty. Originally written by Dr. Steven Bonta, Defending Utah has made this essential reading available for listening. The Founders unanimously taught that personal morality was an essential part of America’s path towards liberty saying,
Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. -George Washington
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. –John Adams
Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters. –Benjamin Franklin
We hope you enjoy and share this important account of the essential link between morality and true lasting liberty
