Should he call Seiagustus to protest? Hardly . . given their track record they would probably just laugh at him and tell him to grow up. Or then again, they might offer him some money to keep quiet. But while Alek was not beyond taking a little sweetener to turn a blind eye on occasions, this was different: apparently serious and widespread human suffering was involved and it was not simply about payment to be discreet over some minor misdemeanour. So no use talking to Seiagustus. He thought of calling Boris to tell him the turn of events, but what good would that do?

What could Boris do? He thought of calling Volgaline, but if he recounted a tale like this they would either take him to be drunk and delirious on some local opiate or, if they knew about the real nature of the cargo, they would probably relieve him permanently of command in the near future. Alek even thought of calling his lovely Mexican girlfriend whom he had met on an earlier voyage and who always cheered him up; but tonight he would feel dirty if he called her, and what would she think of him if he told her what was happening.

But we must admit also that people sometimes change the way in which they think or act in moral matters and the use of some methods or techniques could promote or deter particular lines of behaviour. Ethical issues are not exclusively internal to the individual; they can or should be solved by the self in his or her confrontation with the external (public) moral instances that are recognized as valid according to some broadly acceptable way of reasoning. Ethics have thus to be related not only to the individual’s universe, but also to the individual’s cultural environment.
