Defining What Is Right

Posted by on Thursday, January 19th, 2012 with 0 comments

All of us are under some pressure to do what is right, whether from ourselves, our family, or society.  We do our best to stick to the right side of things because we feel immoral doing otherwise.  Yet most of the time, we accept this ambiguous word – “right” – simply because we haven’t really thought about it.  There will never be a shortage of people to opine on what the right behavior is, and yet very rarely do people admit to the subjectiveness of their beliefs.  For many, it only becomes clear that there is no correct point of view when two people they respect have completely opposite opinions.  Even then, one will usually relieve oneself of the discord of not knowing who to believe by taking a side.  All the while, it should be clear that neither side is right: each person is merely stating his own opinion, and the only way to figure out what is right is to ask yourself.
