A Question of Ethics

Blog Comments Off

Short message today, folks. Devoid of inspiration, and this was written while I was away on holidays. Enjoy, and I hope that there’ll be more interesting stuff next time.

I know people that don’t exactly do the right thing. We all do.

They’re the kind of people who seem to be really good – on the outside, they’re caring, supportive, and all of those qualities that we take for granted.

But it’s all a facade to the deception that lies below.

Beneath the surface, they’re not nice people. Deception and dishonesty are the names of the game, and here, with lots of fakes (I personally own no less than three Rolex’s ;) ), I’m not surprised.

However, when you’re flogging off fakes as the genuine article – because you can charge a premium for genuine – that’s when I start to get a little worried.

Sure, market the products as “aftermarket”, or “third party”. There’s nothing wrong with that. Heck, if people ask you, don’t tell them that they’re the genuine thing – tell them that they’re fakes, and adjust the price accordingly.

What you shouldn’t be doing is packaging up fakes as the real deal, sticking “fake” genuine stickers on it, and selling it at a premium over fakes, because that’s just bad.

In this day and age, ethics are of the utmost importance. Even if you’re not a Christian, there are some things that you just won’t do – more serious things like murder come to mind. Everyone seems to have their own “moral code”, things that they feel like are off limits to do.

In any case, if you’ve decided what kind of a person you want to be in life, then you should already know what your moral code is.

If you don’t – I suggest you get one quick smart. Everything will be so much easier when you do.
