Right & Right, & that's what he is
But isn't moral cowardice sacrificing your values because you don't have the courage to defend them?

That's not what Merle is, he doesn't have those values to start with, as far as I can tell he doesn't really care about other people or what is "right" at all.
Actually, I'm not entirely sure how the phrase is defined, but by how you've defined it, then you have a point. My only point is that Merle is not a just or righteous man, & I really have a hard time seeing him ever becoming one, unless it was maybe a sacrifice to save Daryl
All true, but people can grow. Merle might not ever become a just and righteous man, but it's still possible for him to learn a few things.

It will be interesting to see if he goes that route, or if he remains in "scorpion" mode. Either is possible.
