Georgia Governor Zell Miller has devoted his adult life to public service, first as a teacher and later as a politician. In both capacities he has witnessed the erosion of fundamental values in today's society. Harkening back to the most influential experience of his life, Governor Miller calls for a return to the values he learned as a young Marine Corps recruit: "The basic lessons Marines teach their recruits are important ones. I believe that more of our citizens must learn these lessons if ... our republican form of government is to survive and thrive." In clear, passionate essays, Governor Miller writes about the core values he believes are essential "for the survival of a society in which individuals can achieve for themselves and ... contribute to the advancement of mankind as a whole." These values include neatness, responsibility, persistence, discipline, shame, brotherhood, courage, achievement, punctuality, respect, pride, and loyalty.
