    Unprincipled” is an epithet.

    What does this "epithet" mean here? "a swear word" or "a nickname"?
    59)We want our politicians to act on principle and not out of narrow self-interest. ➓Protect human rights. Protect national security. Defend free speech. ⓫Our codes of professional ethics are all about the good principles that should guide doctors, lawyers, and architects. ⓬Respect for client and patient autonomy. Loyalty. Trust. ⓭“Unprincipled” is an epithet.But like rules, good principles, unleavened by judgment, can be dangerous.
