“The result is a me-first, ultra-consumerist culture, in which the quest for possession of things overrides a caring concern for others, and the key commandments become don’t get caught and don’t grass.

“This week we’ve had an unpleasant glimpse of the default position to which society inevitably returns when its moral imperatives are forgotten.”
