How Our capability of rational thought inherently supports ethical fading?

As human beings we are blessed and CURSED with our ability for RATIONAL THOUGHT.

It is with our capacity for rational and analytical thought that we can think through hard problems and advance technology.

This can also be MISUSED to explain or JUSTIFY our behavior when we know it VIOLATES some deep seated code of ethics or helps us avoid some sense of guilt we may harbor for a decision or action we took.
