    I have to agree with 100%. Some people just watch as immorality runs rampant right before their eyes, and if it doesn't affect them, they don't care.

    However, I would have to disagree as well, since immorality is completely subjective to the culture of the society your living in. One person may see it as immoral, while others see it as ethical.

    yesterday in a cab
    The Pakistani driver, told that his 2 year old daughter got an ear infection 3 months ago, she can no longer hear. hence her speaking capabilities have worsened to the extent of no talking.
    The doctor has not given them the papers to go to hospital so she can be treated. Three times in a row.

    immoral passivity?

    Cheeseman1208, for the sake of this discussion, we must assume that there is an objective and rational system of morality with which we use as an axiom, or group of axioms to deduce whether some action, or inaction is immoral.

    How do you define morality?

    I agree if each allows the other their say.
