Forty years ago last month, President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office. No American President had ever resigned before. None has done so since. Furthermore, several of Nixon’s men went to jail. And only because they lied about a third-rate burglary in a political rival’s office. The country had a strong sense of ethics then. (Or so we thought.) Where is that ethics today? Or has a new anti-ethics taken its place? A new moral code that rewards those who promise “bread and circuses,” and no one cares whether anyone in government lies or not?
