Is there a gray side to things?

Maybe, but for some times it's easier to ignore that, lead your life, and enjoy it, instead of arguing forever about your life choices or hobbies or whatever. Also tends to stiffle discussion, meaning you can spend your time on more fun things :3

There are very few perfectly black and white situations. It's just that people prefer to think that things are more black and white.
eg. How many times have you heard the line "He was going to kill me!! I had no choice!"? Wrong! You had a choice, you could have chosen to let him kill you. There just wasn't a _good_ choice.

I'd go so far as to say most things are in the gray zone. It's just that we take black or white stances and refuse to see things that way.

The world only has a tiny strip of white, a tiny strip of black, and a huge expanse of varying shades of grey.

Is killing wrong? What if it is for defense? What if it is to end a suffering? What if it is to prevent a greater wrongdoing?
Is stealing wrong? What if it is to feed a child? What if you steal a weapon from an enemy? Every person and every event has a slightly different circumstance. If an event can be seen in multiple shades depending upon who views it, then of course the world is full of grey.

The problem is that people want to have lines drawn to suit themselves. Everyone moves based on their own motives and as a general rule people do not think of themselves as evil. Having lines drawn in agreement with one's own views gives one a sense of validation. But I find that those who cannot view the world in terms outside of their own upbringing are shallow and selfish. Understanding the motivations and viewpoints of others gives one the power of knowledge. Refusing to see things from another perspective is arrogant and self-righteous.

Thinking of the world as black and white - good and evil - is only for those who have more arrogance than wisdom.

Good and Evil is relative to ones perspective. I believe that there is a black, a white, and a grey however.

Euthanasia is a topic without a black and white, simple divide.

There is nothing as Black or White in the world, everything is grey no matter what people see/hear/think. It's just about which perspective you agree on. Life's a bitch but there's nothing you can do but make it better for yourself.
