O bezwstydzie


This moralising essay indicates some specific, negative phenomena of our everyday life, which (however impenetrable for an univocal moral valuation) remain characteristic to the moral crisis of contemporary democratic systems. “Immodesty and baseness”, traced by the author, seem to be located somewhere on the cross-roads of an ethical and aesthetic valuation. There is something “disgusting” in the more and more ruthless violation of the right of privacy by media just to satisfy plebeian curiosity. There is something disgusting in the cynicism of the politicians: their statements, poses, behaviour don’t harm anybody in direct way and don’t openly break the moral rules, but in fact they impair a human dignity.
