Sometimes I am completely amoral.
By no means all of the time.
Normally there are boundaries I will not cross, limits I will not go beyond, borders I will not breach.
Usually I have a particularly well maintained moral compass. I instinctively know pure from evil – and I truly do try hard to be good – although to some my desires may be dark.
And yet, now and again, rarely, I am purposefully blind to the line between right and wrong.
It is not that I don’t see the distinction. It is not that I do not understand it. It is not even that I attempt to blur it, smudge it, or obfuscate it in my own mind.
I simply do not allow it to inform my actions.
It is then that I rely upon the safe and cautious decisions of others.
