    Re: Right and Wrong: who decides?

    umm, read what I said again beast, because no where in either of my previous posts did I include the phrase, "laws and law makers are not just". Nice work putting words in my mouth in your vain effort to 'serve' me.

    In some ways the law is powerful, but if it unjust the people will react.
    I hope you caught my emphasis of "if" this time. I don't make rash over generalizations of law makers by idiotically believing all law makers are scum and never pass anything just.

    Also, are you seriously saying the civil rights movement "didn't benefit the country"? Why not google your history again, beast, because last time I checked the civil rights movement in the 1960s was the definitive movement for eliminating racial discrimination in this country. So what, that doesn't come off as a "benefit" to you? Wow. Did you even read your post before you hit submit, or were you just drunk off your ass when you decided "hey, I'm going to try to act like I know some shit by attacking some punk user's example, rather than be a productive member of the forum and actually post about the relevant topic at hand".

    I already spoke my piece about right and wrong, so Shatter can take or leave it, I'm done with this topic.

    I didn't say that about laws or law makers, you did.

    No it doesn't come off as a benefit to me. No were in your ranting did you actually make a case that it was beneficial to me and that is because it probably wasn't. It was people in power passing a bill to benefit a minority. Democracy is supposed to work by doing what is good for the majority. At heart I think people are separatist but that was too radical so we legislated that piece of trash.

    There's nothing as right or wrong but thinking makes it so
    For me, wrong is the stuff I do which damages or at least causes bad effect to others

    It's all about social norms. In the USA, if a girl get raped, the offender is punished and in our eyes, that is right. In a few middle eastern countries, if a girl was raped, both her and the offenders would be put to death and I guess in their eyes, that's right.

    Back in ancient Greek times, having buttsex with your son was a form of male bonding.

    In effect it is the masses that decide what is ethical and the election of a single or multiple people is just a way to make it easier mark my words if pedophiles became a majority in any country it would not only be legal but would already be ethical long before...(its a bad thought...isnt it?)
