Model Citizen

To succeed in a healthy way, choosing a model worthy of your commitment is essential.

The operative word here is model, an exemplary model that you can live up to and be proud of.

Each age has had a model, or archetype that represented the zeitgeist of the times—from the hero, the saint, the martyr, the knight, the renaissance man, the explorer, the gentleman, the mystic, to more recent media-spawned phenomena in the guise of the film or rock star who is more admired than the humanitarian; and, to further reveal (split infinitive notwithstanding) society’s conceit, the cult-worship of youth and surface appearance has become mainstream idolatry.

This is the climate of prevailing values in which you must persevere.
