Shame - Killed off by PR, Lawyers, Free Thinkers

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Bit by bit the brilliant tactics of the public relations industry, the ability of lawyers to get miscreants off the hook, and free thinkers who don't give a damn about the public good have killed off shame.  The Puritans imported it into America.
