"Sometimes, you just gotta set your ethics aside to benefit from where the real money is, right?"|
If you were posting this in 1989 your point would be valid.
But it's 2012.
The USA kills its citizens, tortures others, extradites anyone they wish, rendites to black prisons and holds people without trial forever.
It's called loss of moral authority.
In 1500-1950 many Europeans moved to The New World to escape the constraints of Europe.
I have done the same, and I am certain that then people spoke ill of my ancestors 'who fled' 'were cowards' 'turned their backs on their country' and 'set aside their ethics', just as you criticise me, now, for leaving the USA and moving to Asia.
