End justifies the means

"There is a deep strain in the American psyche that the end justifies the means" - quote from David Callahan, the author of "The Cheating Culture''.
1/2 of the randomly selected journalists surveyed by the Northwestern U. say they have seen unethical behavior in the newsroom.
Although U.S. companies spend annually on R&D $194 billions dollars, they spend $205 billion annually on tort litigation.
A recent Gallup survey reports that 70% of public high school students admit to serious test cheating.
According to a recent survey covering 5,331 students at 32 graduate business schools in the U.S. and Canada, 56% of business students were willing to own up to cheating (and who knows how many of them lied about that?).
