    After considerable information gathering and some ripping research we at American Age have decided to bring our knowledge, experience, and insight to the slipping of America's never-ending saga of lowering the bar of acceptable standards of conduct and decency. We believe that it's time for that proverbial 'line' to be drawn in the sand primarily with, but not limited to: Illegal Immigration, Sexual Orientation, (or whatever that is?) and Education.

Tolerance or Discrimination

America's gift of tolerance

America's gift of tolerance

Lately many of our writings have been concerned with the notion of tolerance. After all, America was founded, nurtured, and adapted based on the notion of tolerance; albeit, religious tolerance, philosophical tolerance, and societal tolerance.

What is this ‘tolerance’ anyway? Why is it important? What happens if tolerance or being tolerant becomes lenient or the laissez-faire acceptance of anything or everything that is tossed out in front of society? People do have belief systems, faiths, and varying acceptance levels and those should be the standard and the norm, and above all appreciated and respected.

Before we get ahead of ourselves here we need a working definition of tolerance. Tolerance is the acknowledgment of the differing views of other people; for example, in religious or political matters, and fairness toward the people who hold these different views.

Furthermore, tolerance is also the act of putting up with somebody or something irritating or otherwise unpleasant. In addition, putting up with bad or harsh conditions is also being tolerant.

Throughout history, tolerance, has been under substantial and conditional assault by just about anything and everything. Yet contrarily, how could something with such great intentions be treated with such disdain and selfishness?

As I mentioned in the beginning of this short introductory essay, America was founded by those who were seeking a place where they could practice their religion, live their lives without interference or any such abuses of tyranny.

How do we transmit the morals, virtues, and ethics from one generation to another?

How is it that people, along with special interest groups can change or alter tolerant behaviors into discriminatory tactics?
