1. The Moral Center in Films

High Noon (1952) is a classic tale of a hero who must face mortal danger alone. The other “good” men in the town are either unable or unwilling to stand by his side, despite the fact that he cleaned up Hadleyville and made it a decent place to live. With his sense of responsibility, determination, and courage, Will Kane represents the moral center of the story—the character who exemplifies the right values and moral attributes. Miller’s gang is the threat to the hero, the direct cause of the dramatic tension in the story, but the true moral antitheses to Kane’s noble behavior are the townspeople, who are hypocrites and cowards. Amy is a character on a moral journey, and Helen Ramirez acts as her guide. Initially unwilling to support her husband and embrace the virtues he represents, she gets a lesson in loyalty when Ramirez advises her to stand by her man, which Amy ultimately does.

Trump scares the crap outta me. He attacks anyone or anything that makes sense. He is anti- everything and everyone that he doesn't agree with.

Hi Terry. I appreciate the thoughtful blog with clear bullet points about Trumps character deficiencies. Unfortunately the Clintons fare equally bad for different reasons, in my opinion. You've given me a lot to think about, however, and I will watch carefully and do more research. Thank you, as always, for your honest efforts to make us question and think.

Difficult time require responsible citizens to make decisions that are less than optimal.

"We face a terrible dilemna in this election year. There may be no good choices, but there is only one fight choice and it's not Donald Trump".

Bravo, T.R. Bacon!
