Made me stop and think

We retreat and retreat, morally, until there is no meaningful difference left between us.  What you see, and allow without a fight, is what you become yourself.  What is the moral difference between the man who burns his neighbor to death, and the man who stands by and watches him do it.

from Death in Focus, a mystery by Anne Perry
