Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28
Mal - Not really, a lot of people want to do a lot of things (usually things that benefit them), but a lot of things deter them from it. Or even on the other hand, things that encourage them to do something because they feel it's "morally right", but is actually the wrong thing to do.
For some people the thought of stealing will never cross their minds, not because they're "morally superior" in any way but simply because the benefit of it is so low compared to the risks that it's simply not worth even considering it.
Sometimes stealing is actually the right thing to do, it might not be often but there are definitely instances, but in some situations where it's right there would be those that don't do it because they deem it morally wrong and they'll usually end up suffering for it.
In quite a few places they don't actually have real cameras due to budget issues, simply fake ones to give the idea that people are being recorded and that if they do something they might get caught (though that's just one factor of it).
Moral behaviour is never absolute and never has been.
