But there are very, very few things on which the world has unanimous
agreement.  Perhaps none.  That doesn't mean you can't, or shouldn't,
apply your own standards -- but it does mean that you can't expect
others to have the same standards as you do.  (And particularly in
today's hypercapitalist, globalized society, for good or for ill, some
people's standards go no deeper than "Will it make me a buck?" and
"Will I end up in court over it?")
