  • Then and Now

    My family did not get a TV until 1955. So I caught the last few years of the Lone Ranger. Here is the creed they tried to always portray on the series:
    The Lone Ranger[edit]

    As generally depicted, the Lone Ranger conducts himself by a strict moral code based on that put in place by Striker at the inception of the character. Actors Clayton Moore[6]and Jay Silverheels both took their positions as role models to children very seriously and tried their best to live by this creed.[citation needed] It read:
    I believe...
    • That to have a friend, a man must be one.
    • That all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world.
    • That God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself.
    • In being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for what is right.
    • That a man should make the most of what equipment he has.
    • That 'this government of the people, by the people, and for the people' shall live always.
    • That men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number.
    • That sooner or later...somewhere...somehow...we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken.
    • That all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever.
    • In my Creator, my country, my fellow man.

    When we see what is on TV for kids to watch today, is it any wonder why our nation has fallen so far in such a short time ?
