90700, Wah! She (different she) beat me to it.
Posted by Weird Jim, Fri Apr-13-12 09:51 PM
The other day I was reading an article that sort of expressed regret that little or no philosopy lies behind today's fiction. I'm not sure that's true, but nevermind. The thing was, she spoke of morals (whatever they are, these days), and metioned 'Moral Disorder'.

Wow, I thought, there's a catchy title, but what does it mean. So I Googled 'Moral Disorder'.

No, I didn't buy the book of that title Google brought up.

She, Margaret Atwood, *&(%^ has a volume of short stories with that title.

WAH!



Has anyone read it? Is it any good? I like some of her stuff.

Titles aren't under copyright, so if an idea came to your mind when you saw the phrase I say use it and have fun with it!

True. But that's Margaret Atwood, an international name in fiction.

I'm perhaps thinking of Moral Disarray, or perhaps Righteous Disorder. Then there's Disordered Virtue. Or even, after a bit of searching, Codes of Disconduct -- Code of Misconduct is taken.

One of the problems is that such things are in a sort of state of uncertainy these days.
