According to the recent article in the Los Angeles Times about Michael Josephson and his Institute for the Advancement of Ethics, Josephson sees a very bleak future due to the lack of morals young people have today ("Did We Rear a Bunch of Moral Mutants?" Oct. 11).
I am within the age group targeted by Josephson. I consider myself to have very high morals.
Although I cannot dispute Josephson's statistics, I will argue with where he places the blame. To put the blame on parents, teachers and employers isn't fair. While it is true that our environment does influence our behavior, the ultimate decision to do something morally wrong rests with the individual.
