Interesting articles, thanks, coffee.

I seem to remembrr that morals are considered to have an evolutionary origin for quite a long time, but nice to see more evidence for this. Not at all surprised that given a big enough incentive, as a "one-off" at least, can suppress the morals. It could be why I hate shopping at bullying supermarkets but can't afford local shop prices on my whole shop!

One hopes that this does not become a life-habit, a sole pattern of life. But, with a world full of fat-cats, taking the profit with no thought of the consequences for other people, it seems to be a forlorn hope.

I give more respect to babies/children, they are not my things that I own or my property
