  • Philosophy → Morality → Contradictory Moral Systems

Travis desperately tries to assist a young prostitute. While he performs several depraved acts over the course of the film, he retains an internal moral compass guided by his own system. On the one hand, he is perfectly fine murdering unarmed civilians; on the other hand, he can't bear to witness Iris continue to work as a prostitute.
