How to use degeneracy in a sentence?

  1. Abraham Lincoln:

    Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation we began by declaring that 'all men are created equal.' When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read 'all men are created equal, except Negroes and foreigners and Catholics.' When it comes to this, I shall prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy hypocrisy.

  2. Albert S. Herlong Jr.:

    [Communist Goals for America:] - Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” - Control schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. - Soften curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put party line in textbooks. Control student newspapers. - Infiltrate churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion (i.e. “social justice,” “liberation theology”). - Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.” - Discredit American culture. - Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and divorce. - Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.
