The Four Horsemen of the Modern Apocalypse

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse rode a white horse, a red horse, a black horse, and a pale horse. I was thinking recently that Hurricane Katrina only visited physical destruction upon New Orleans. I was in New Orleans the week before the hurricane hit and I felt the city was destroyed before the hurricane by the Four Horsemen of the Modern Apocalypse: Crime, Corruption, Ignorance, and Incompetence.

Why should Hispanics care about the Four Horsemen of the Modern Apocalypse? They should care because Hispanics will be taking over the government of some American cities and they need to be careful not to repeat the mistakes made in New Orleans.

What is the solution to crime, corruption, ignorance, and incompetence? Money is not the solution. Money breeds corruption. The answer is a work ethic, morality, a love of learning, and good leadership. Confucianism is a good way to develop these attributes. The Hispanic community will benefit greatly from Confucianism.
