I have been reading some Camus (l'etrangere) and have come across a term which I can't find a clear definition in any dictionary. And as I don't have my own English translation available, i'm not sure how to render it in idiomatic English. The term is 'les "moeurs"' as in 'appeler les "moeurs"'. Although the normal translation is, of course, morals, I thought maybe here it could mean 'moral police' or something along those lines. Does anyone have any more ideas on how best to translate this phrase?
