Ethics Alarms - Unethical Rationalizations and Misconceptions

Ethics Alarm had a great (and long!) list of rationalizations and misconceptions people use to justify unethical actions.  As I have stated before, very few if any people think they are bad no matter how bad their action are. They just rationalize their bad actions away. Not deluding yourself with rationalizations is a key part being a good person. 

Ethics Alarms is an interesting site. Their mission is to examine ethical situations and problems in many areas and professions especially, not surprising given that it was founded by a lawyer, in the legal realm. Note that the homepage contains a good list of ethics sites. Check them out.
