Probably, it has been going on since seperate states and politics were invented. The origins of the diplomatic service, court jesters, were spies, being jesters they were immune to punishment. Is it moral, probably not. What is not all right, is spying on other countries and then whingeing when they spy on you, that is hypocrisy.
Spying is ok if you have declared war on another country and you need to gain intelligence on the enemy. I think it is also ok in the sense that state department officials need to research other nations to find out what those nations would be willing to buy from us. Typically the US fails as a nation on both counts. Instead, we practice some sort of quasi-Byzantine strategy we adopted from the USSR of random intelligence gathering on allies and enemies.

Is it ok to have a crush on someone, even if you are happily married?I was telling this to my sister the other day, that it's normal to have crushes on people throughout our lives, even if we are happily married. It's ok to have a crush, but it doesn't mean you have to ACT on it. Am I right?
