I have utilized "Human Solidarity" and "The Moral Law" to show that the theme of moral anarchy is suggested primarily through the actions and motivations of many of Joseph Conrad's characters. Most of the characters fail to adhere to the rules which preserve the human bond, but Conrad suggests confessing one's offenses and submitting to their consequences to re-establish oneself in the human comminty. The result may not be complete happiness but at least inner peace for the guilty.
