More on Moral Decay

“Our budding, still timid press has all the same rendered some service to society, for without it we should never have learned, in any measure of fullness, of those horrors of unbridled will and moral degradation that it ceaselessly reports in its pahes, to everyone[…] hourly we read of things before which the present case pales and seems almost something ordinary.”

Brothers Karamazov p. 695

Written in 1880. Moral decay is a myth.
