What is it called when you willingly do something that you believe to be immoral?Submitted by wraiththirteen on Wed, 09/05/2012 - 17:45
Right now a whole lot of republicans are getting ready to vote for someone who they know is for abortion, a big government spender, wrote the mandatory health care law and very very liberal. The republicans for the most part believe all this is wrong, but will ignore all that and vote for someone they think is bad because of obama.
Right now the democrats are about to vote for someone who has an assasanation list, started several wars without congresses consent, broke all his promisis about bringing the troops home, and also hurt civil liberties in many many ways. Most of the democrats believe these things are wrong, but are going to vote for obama anyway because they think the republicans must now win they will somehow be worse.
Both groups are flatly going to ignore their moral compass and vote for evil, heck even to the point that they will defend their evil with loud arguments, and banging of the chest and fire in their eyes, all the while saying I am voting for the lesser of two evils. I remember reading here and there about how some proffesors and psicolagest did experments to see if they could make people do what they thought was wrong, and what that did to a man, but I do not know what it is called or know where those links are now, as I was just reasing that as a rabbit trail for other subjects. If anyone knows links to those articles it would be appreciated, or if someone knows the term or terms used to define this I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
