But what truly bodes ill for our civilization, reflecting a virtue/vice tipping point, is the increasingly common belief that there was nothing at all wrong with Hill’s actions.

Here’s a little Philosophy 101: Right and wrong aren’t determined by what people, even great masses of them, have done and want to justify. Right doesn’t become wrong because wrong becomes a rite.
Man has always sinned. But civilization is maintained by repenting and changing our ways — or, at worst, sinning privately — and professing morality publically. As for dumbing down standards and leading others toward Perdition just to self-centeredly salve our feelings, this is likely a far greater sin than whatever it is we aim to justify.
