I think it has alot to do with people getting off on being morally superior and righteous. "Im more concerned about other people than you are!" and all that. "Im RIGHT! You're WRONG!" Its a subconscious thing, but its worth mentioning. People are all ego-maniacs, its how society works. Go ahead and deny it if you want, but that just means you cant see your own failings.
If you really want to do something about the "morally corrupt" society we live in, quit talking about how you want to do something and actually DO something. Talk is cheap. SO cheap. Get off the soapbox and put in the effort, instead of spending all your time puffing up like a peacock.
