A Lesson from Chrysophylax

This is a quote from one of Tolkien's lesser known works, Farmer Giles of Ham:
They were, of course, very foolish. For though the oaths he had taken should have burdened his conscience with sorrow and a great fear of disaster, he had, alas! no conscience at all.
 Chrysophylax today might be rather commonplace.
