    Demagogues . . . bribed to this iniquitous service.   --Burke.
 Syn: -- Wicked; wrong; unjust; unrighteous; nefarious; criminal.
 Usage: -- Iniquitous, Wicked, Nefarious. Wicked is the generic term. Iniquitous is stronger, denoting a violation of the rights of others, usually by fraud or circumvention. Nefarious is still stronger, implying a breach of the most sacred obligations, and points more directly to the intrinsic badness of the deed.
