    reasonable solution to any problem you can pick are impossible and if you think about it you would have to agree. Why? Because there is no sense of common morality at all--only getting the latest info on the latest celebrity/reality show is important. Virtue is all but dead (virtue in the old sense--meaning strength not some arbitrary rules).

      Look around at your workplace and count the number of people with any degree of real integrity. It seems to get smaller every year.

        I work for a federal agency. Every year I see folks come and go. With very few exceptions, they are  hard working people with tons of real integrity. By comparison, I suggest you walk into a bank lobby on a slow afternoon. How hard are those fuckers working? Not the ones at the teller cages (interesting term, n'est pas?) but the ones at the desks.
