Search For the Causes . . . And Apply The Proper Remedies

David O. McKay

Called Unto Liberty, 20th Century Sermons, David O. McKay

But no matter how firm our confidence in the majority of the young, we must not close our eyes to the fact that the number of delinquents and youthful criminals is ominously increasing. In the interest of the moral atmosphere of our communities, the welfare of the state, the perpetuity of our democratic form of government, we must search for the causes of this upswing in crime, and, if possible, remove them and apply the proper remedies.
