Title: Mark Parker, Author of the New Book Integrity, Examines Decline of Character and Ethics in Government and Society

Mark Parker, Author of the New Book Integrity,
Examines Decline of Character and Ethics in
Government and Society
(1888 PressRelease) This new book from Mark
Parker examines the current state of character,
ethics and morals in our society. Integrity is a
new book from Mark Parker that casts a critical
eye on the current state of character, ethics and
morals. His premise is that these qualities are
in decline among governmental, political,
business, athletic, religious, educational and
other leaders, and their lack of integrity is
having a profoundly negative effect on our nation
and society. Parker begins his examination of
this crucial issue with brief biographical
sketches of some of the Founding Fathers and
other leaders of the American Revolution. His
purpose is to reveal that, although they were as
flawed as any other human, they also had a strong
moral foundation. Without it, they could have
never led the great mass of common people to
break with England and be treated seriously by
other nations. The pages of Integrity then turn
to an analysis of the lives and leadership
records of many recent U.S. presidents,
legislators, athletes, clergy, businesspeople,
educators and social influencers. The author is
in search of those with the integrity to be
considered equals of the Founding Fathers.

"Moral character, honesty, ethics, principles,
uprightness and reliability have virtually
vanished from our local, state and federal
governments, schools and universities, churches,
and even our courts," said Parker. "We, as
parents, teachers, clergy and even politicians,
must awaken and assume responsibility for what is
happening in our society before it crumbles like
the Roman Empire." Parker's greatest concern is
with the education and development of today's
youth, who are too easily influenced by the
questionable behavior of professional athletes,
popular musicians, and movie and TV stars. In
Parker's view, even our educational and religious
institutions have neglected their responsibility
to teach a moral code that could result in a
stronger economy, happier families and
communities, and a government that is not
fragmented and pulling in different directions.
As the author of Integrity sees it, ultimately
the decline in character and ethics is an
individual issue, which can only be solved at the
individual level. The only way American society
can be imbued with more honesty, unity of purpose
and integrity is for each citizen to make these
principles part of their everyday behavior and
interactions with others. Parker is quick to
add that he is not advocating that we should live
in the past. He does strongly encourage, however,
a renewal of the integrity and character that
seemed to be at the core of the American spirit
for decades. He believes those qualities can be
integrated with our modern technological society
so we can benefit from both. Integrity by Mark
Parker is now available as a Kindle e-book at
