Unfortunately: loudmouths rule in the present culture.
Besides your examples, have you noticed how our culture embraces former drunks and former drug-addicts? What about us: no points for NOT doing something stupid and self-destructive. How about all those who have "turned their lives around" after being criminals and miscreants? It's not comforting to know how much has been taken away from us in taxes for "behaving" (law enforcement, courts, jails, rehabilitation, food stamps, welfare, subsidized everything).
When do we get our reparations for following the rules and not being a burden?
