‘Untimely inaction is worse than untimely action’

It is said that while virtue must be nourished, vice springs up spontaneously like weeds and grows by itself.
For if good ideas foster other good ideas, bad things can foster, on the other hand, other bad things.
Likewise, if we allow impunity for wrongdoers, we are paving way for more wrongdoing. If we allow those who plunder, those who steal public resources, abusing their public offices to get away with it, we are paving way for more and more plunder, more and more corruption, endless abuses of public offices and resources.
