Have They All Gone Mad?

Disgraced New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was a guest speaker at a Harvard University ethics forum this past Thursday, November 12, 2009.

ETHICS.

Let that sink in for a second. Eliot Spitzer was a guest speaker at an ETHICS forum.

Perhaps Lawrence Lessig, the faculty director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics, was absent the day Eliot Spitzer resigned his position as governor in disgrace.

Perhaps Lawrence Lessig missed the part where Spitzer admitted to frequenting high priced hookers.

Perhaps Lessig didn’t realize that Spitzer disgraced his wife and his family.

Ethics?

Websters dictionary defines ethics as: a set of moral principles, the principles of conduct governing an individual or a group.

What does this say to the students at Harvard? What does it say for Lessig and Harvard University? What does it say for us as a society?

Lack of integrity is lack of integrity. Eliot Spitzer has no integrity.

The only people Eliot Spitzer should be discussing ethics with are other johns and hookers.

Have they all gone mad?
