So all you people who think there is no wrong or right believe it's OK to set fire to a caged prisoner and burn him to death????

Well... yes. But, this is where I also think of morals. I mean, what exactly are you asking? I'm alittle dumbfounded by this question lol. :c


Same here. You're not alone!

Sir_Ash24 I think dude below explained it the best. "Common sense"

Something would suggest common sense (if there is such a thing) that most adults should have. Rape, child molestation, etc. Some things ppl should know are wrong, and others depending on context. Robbery if done out of starvation for you or your child could be more ambiguous.. but some things.. are never right..

I think it's more of a "like" and "dislike", rather than "right" and "wrong".

I personally don't think there's a right or wrong because everyone has different opinions and routes toward finding their ways of what's right or wrong. Like in some cases, I think arresting bad guys is the right thing, but in the bad guys side of reasons is that they're force to do this by someone higher up from them or if they're doing it for the sake of their family.

These philosophical questions always remind me of the classic;

"If the Pope sh**s in the wood, does he make a sound?"
(from the Aino Minako quote book)


On topic though; yes there is right and wrong on the basis that probably 99% of the world's population would define the rape of a baby as wrong under any circumstances. For less extreme examples the lines between right and wrong blur and the answer can change based on context.

Its really all a matter of perspective within the society and culture you live in. If you live in a society of criminals for example stealing from others might not be considered wrong, where as if you live in a normal world stealing is considered wrong. Another example would be is it wrong for the U,S to be in the middle east doing what they're doing or is it right? I don't want to get into an argument over this mind you, I'm just using it as an example on the mindset of people.

If you break it down what is right and what is wrong and how much of a wrong/right are we talking about. Killing a person is usually considered a wrong but at the same time it can be considered a right if you kill someone in self defense in protection of yourself. Where as walking down the wrong side of the sidewalk might not be right but then again it's not necessarily wrong either.

As a whole there isn't a Wrong or Right there are too many variables that come into play that make it an impossible to define.

Of course there is something called human rights. But, we live in a world with norms and such, that we all follow or you would be considered as abnormal. But morality concerns consequences, so it's up to each individual.

yes and it's usually subjective.

Its something ingrained in adults and expected to conform to. Some things are universally accepted to be wrong, like murder, rape, terrorism, child molestation, etc, others are more grey and subjective to a person's background and upbringing, such as abortion.

Most of the time, I think there is a clear right and wrong. Sometimes though, it's a little less obvious--- like if you and your family are starving and you steal food. Was it right or not?

"There is good in the bad and bad in the good."

Nothing can be wholly good, because there is no choice that i can think of that would benefit every party involved. However, there is no choice which is wholly wrong either.

For example,

"You are given the choice between killing a murderer, thus becoming a murderer and facing the same punishment, or let the murderer live and they are allowed to continue killing." Both choices have their pros.
option 1: Becoming a murderer, you save people from having to deal with further grief at their loved ones dying.
Option 2: The murderer feels good about living.

Looking at it, it is all down to perspective. A good choice for you, may be a bad choice for someone else and vice versa.

need to define terms. Murder means the illegal or immoral taking of a human life.
Kill means 1. Taking any life
2. Taking a human life deliberately or by accident
3. Taking a human life legally or illegally, morally or immorally
Definitions are important in your example, you do not become a murderer if you take a life for legal (death penalty) or moral (self-defence, protection of innocents) reasons. There is a vast difference between the two.
On the topic however; society sets up right and wrong so society can function. That is why it changes so much over time.

Nothing is genuinely "right" or "wrong", rather what you think is "right or "wrong". We humans have to live in a community and live by a set of laws in order for us to maintain order and prosper. Whether you think murder or theft is right or wrong, if we went around murdering people, we wouldn't be able to live safely and we would literally be living in an animal kingdom where only the strong survive. So, we establish laws to maintain a prosperous community as people. Aside from that, we have morals which contributes to us being able to live as a community but is generally a subjective matter.

So if I were to say "Evil is a point of view" would any of you agree?

There's not many rule sets today that are properly right... but I see some wrong implements in places. Peoples' selfish or "conscious" actions leading to or causing others' personal space/occupation (if you can call it that) being disrupted in a improper way/s and continue to do it again.. You see where I'm getting with this.
P.S. The first statement about rule sets is just to set the tone/or make it pleasant.
