Do you think that immorality is more supported by people?

Almost all of us can tell what's right and what's wrong. And many of us try to stay away from what we believe is wrong. But when it comes to reinforcing others actions by admiration, I see that immoral actions and figures seem to be more supported than the moral ones.

Do you see the same?

    Dec 19 2012: Every society glorifies immorality. Think back through history and there are few times if any that morality is commended. There is always that thought in my head that says, when you are doing everything right no one notices, but mess up once and you'll pay for it for the rest of your life. One bad choice, one immoral act, one life choice that doesn't agree with what is commonly good or bad. People often believe the reputation before they believe the truth.

    The media that gets the attention is negative, that's what sells. That is what makes the game players more money.
