CoMC – Morality


The line between right and wrong again grows gray. Edmond Dantes was wrongfully thrown in prison. He had no idea of the letter’s content, after all. But still he was committing a traitorous act in delivering it. Does ignorance relieve culpability? Was it right or wrong to pay back the men who had ruined Edmond’s life? They took his happiness away from him, can he not do so to them? In a letter written by Dantes to Maximilian Morrel he states, “Tell the angel who is going to watch over you, Morrel, to pray for a man who, like Satan, believed for one moment he was the equal of God.” Dantes, in the throes of his rage, came close to losing his soul, but in the end he commits a few deeds that will indeed help his fellow men. Discuss the circumstances of Dantes’ actions and whether or not they think he crossed moral boundaries. What is morally proper and can the boundaries be crossed in certain circumstances?

At first they came for the Internet and I said nothing because I was not the Internet

“First They Came” – Pastor Martin Niemoller

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
