If you are guilty of turpitude, you should be ashamed of yourself. Turpitude is a word that represents depraved behavior. Prisons are filled with criminals who have engaged in acts of moral turpitude.

Turpitude comes from the Latin word turpitudo, which means "repulsiveness." Corrupt politicians get booted out of office for acts of turpitude, like taking bribes in exchange for lucrative government contracts. Turpitude often follows the word moral, and acts of moral turpitude are usually crimes that are unusually sick or corrupt.

"The magical inception of turpitude and strife
overwhelms my smitten heart with destructive pain.
The cruel essence of its smoking gun leaves my soul
bloody and torn never to be patched nor repaired."
Sounds crappy.

Look at the politicians. Moral turpitude is more prevalent over there.

The various and extraordinary amount of turpitudes of modern society, will never be matched, by those conducted by the G.W. Bush/ D. Cheney presidency. Their acts cost the world over 1 million lives and is still creating death and undue hardships for hundreds of thousands, throughout the world.
