Breaking the Moral Contract
I was with a friend one night when a topic was brought up about some friends that she knew. She mentioned that her friend was cheating on her boyfriend. I asked if she was going to intervene or tell the boyfriend. She simply said that she had no right to be in the girlfriend's business.

In this situation the moral code of trust or privacy is being respected by my friend. My issue with it is, once someone has violated a moral code, why should their moral code be respected? And why should you uphold your moral bond as friends expecting the same result?

Aside from what is objective or subjective, if you view the action as wrong, then why should you respect any morality that you would consider lesser than it? Assuming you can place your morality in a hierarchy type of fashion from high to low importance.

I may be talking out my ass at the moment, and I could probably find a better way to word this, but I am tired, sick, and bored. Ask if anyone need further elaboration, and please discuss.
