vice or virtue

Today i find lots of changes in the fabric of society, it has become a polyester from Khaadi, No stain is bad, it can be washed, however dirty you make it, still it can look clean, not like Khadi--which is to be maintained sprightly clean, cant take a single spot.
Earlier even a hint of some bribe, scandal used to make big noise in the society and a big embarrassment to the person. Its not that there were no tainted persons , or no corruption or no opportunists., because greed is a human quality, so existed in all the ages, everybody knows that Mahabharata took place only because of Duryodhana's greed. But there was a stigma attached to every vice, so whoever indulged did so on the side,and when confronted would not accept it easily.
See how the times have changed.Today nobody has any scruples, instead of feeling ashamed they will start telling you the names of hundred other people who are corrupt and all that। क्या सब के चोरी करने से चोरी चोरी नही रहती ?
here i want to say that -------I am afraid that............if the majority is corrupt, then there is a chance that tomorrow corruption may be converted into a virtue------------.I feel scared of living in that society.......................where journalists start supporting the politician only because they have been very candid in the dealings or feelings.

Hmmmm......have to agree with u to some extent but having said that I still believe, most of us still retain that conscience which pricks us to do the right things.

I personally believe there are 2 reasons for people to behave negetively....
1. circumstances make them like that - poverty and illiteracy should NEVER be overlooked.
2. people with too much time on their hands - like they say "an idle mind is a devils workshop"

Yes, I also feel verey sympathetic with the first type of people, but very frustrated with the attitude of those who have pots of money, and still would do anything for money, this community is increasing the corruption and manipulations in the country.
