Have we become morally bankrupted as a nation, during the last few years?
The nation hasn't, but there may be (and probably are) a growing number of individuals who have opted for morals and ethics which are not the national norms. Sensualism has become the focus of so many that waste larger and larger portions of their productive living. The religious see it as a warning, the non-religious see it as license. If unchecked by morality and public values, you could eventually answer your question with a "Yes."
Most definitely YES! very sad. I remember when I was a kid and it is not even close to being the same, WORSE.
There is no doubt that this country has slid backwards.in every way. There are some people who want to have their religious views legislated for everyone else but then they turn around and promote corrupt politicians based on their support on some core moral values. But these same politicians send our children to the mideast to die for bogus reasons and enrich their friends with these phony wars based on a warped sense of patriotism. The media does nothing to help monitor corruption in government or big business and consequently the pursuit of money trumps the common good. Legislation has nothing to do with the public good. The passage or failure of legislation is contingent on money passed out by lobbyists. It goes on and on. Does this sound like their is any moral collateral left in this country?
The short answer is yes, but it is a process that has been unfolding for decades. A significant slide began when Reagan deregulated the economy, which inevitably led to the fiasco of the sub prime crisis of 2008-09 and the subsequent depression the began the unraveling of the world economy. It has not ended yet. Further the moral bankruptcy escalated with the tearing up of the constitution with the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, the Extradition act, the passing of the Super Congress and many others that have turned a democracy toward being a full blow police state. Now the US is playing virtually the same role as Rome; invading sovereign nations for resources, importing everything and exporting jobs and terror.
