At what point does one begin to feel guilt at violating a moral standard or compromising personal integrity? I suppose it varies with the individual, but that suggests a crack in the moral code, doesn’t it; isn’t morality by definition a universal social contract governing right and wrong?  There’s where it all goes to hell in a handbasket. We can’t agree, as a species, on a universal social contract. If we could, there would be far less conflict in the world.
