"You can’t, in sound morals,
condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity.
It is his clear duty."

Reader comments about this quote:
A condemnation against integrity can be made in a democracy or other form of immoral government. Socialism dictates that man needs forego certain integrity so that the government (as is a separate entity, aloof from We The People) can take care of him cradle to grave, or just in those certain circumstances where he needs it. After all we need imperialism, compelled compliance, theft of the laborer's fruits, victimless crimes, etc., etc., etc.

    Absolutely! That is the responsibility we all have and should rightly exercise. Anything less is cowardice and a cop out.

    I will uphold my clear duty, in the face of all adversity. God give us strength in due season that we my endure hardship, as a good ambassador of liberty and peace. Sound morals are morals observed and outwardly worked.

    I was wondering if the one who wrote "Heart of Darkness" could just come out and write something in plain words.
