What I think is most troubling in this article about Clarence Thomas is that he appears to not care how others think about them. It seems to me that a fundamental requirement of ethical behavior is actually caring about what others thing. While Thomas’ continued participation in extravagant trips that he does not pay to attend is not illegal, it creates the appears of quid pro quo. Ethics isn’t about laws, it’s about appearance and trust. Americans are right to not trust the Supreme Court when justices don’t care about ethics, and given that the Supreme Court is the most authoritarian branch of the U.S. government, the lack of ethics is frightening.
