Instilling Values in Transcending Generations: Bringing Harmony to Cultures Through the Power of Conscience

Front Cover
Texas Peacemaker Publicatio, 2006 - Philosophy - 400 pages
In Instilling Values in Transcending Generations, Tieman Dippel creates a new paradigm in his focus on the power of a culture of morality and individual responsibility to impact the more competitive powers of economics and partisan politics. Rather than a book on morality, it is a book on the power of morality and how to shape society. It teaches readers to value individual responsibility and character rather than adopt a concept of victimization. In doing so it explains the necessity of changing the current drift that American culture has taken toward materialistic relativism. It is a book about the power of morality and the necessity of having a common core of ideas. It is focused on teaching readers how to more effectively fight in a world dominated by the powers of convenience, corruption, and terrorism.
