Mary Margaret Park: “Ethics” (A Writer’s Fury Part III)
Indeed, whether it’s material, societal, or taboo etc., the cultural pendulum sways back and forth, its determinate factor largely a matter of ‘perspective’, and whence one lands to collect the ‘booby prize’, 1st place is the freedom to have another ‘go’ at the proverbial ‘rat race’, 2nd place, down into ‘the pit’. Come to think of it, the two are pretty much the same.
People are quick to assign ‘values’ to the intangible; they hone their ‘lists’ and use them like a litmus-test, to ‘rate’ human beings. Whether it’s the church going old lady or the local cop, for some, gossip is king, and they love to judge.
They all have their favorites. The neighbors ‘living in sin’. The guy or gal that’s ‘easy’. The ‘town drunk’; and if one of the afore mentioned were to die violently, the townspeople might say, “It’s real sad, a shame, but it was bound to happen, with all that boozing and carrying on, just a naer’ do well, another low ‘value’ citizen to mark off the list.”
Whether something is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ depends; it’s a matter of perspective. Instead, we should ask, “Is it ethical?”
