LAW AND MORALITY

  • While browsing through a department store, you see a woman stuff some articles of clothing inside her coat while she continues her regular shopping.
  • Walking through a park, you observe a mother hitting a small child with her fists.
  • You are a bartender, and a woman who is obviously pregnant comes in and orders a vodka martini.
  • A law is passed that makes it a crime for anyone to speak out against the government and requires those who hear people doing so to report them to the authorities. Your father frequently speaks out against the government in your presence.
