It’s Friday, which can only mean one thing, at least on this blog: the Friday Question.
I’ve been pondering about a thought lately that I’d like to pose to you. I want to hear your responses.
What’s right, and what’s wrong?
I’ve been musing this question for quite some time. I have gut reactions where I immediately see things as good or bad, as right or wrong as correct or incorrect. And I would like to understand these reactions better. Sometimes I love something, or strongly like it, instantly. When I first became a writer, I felt an immediate pull to the art form, and I knew in that moment, that it was a passion of mine. At the same time, there are things I’ve always inexplicably disliked or have found morally wrong – guns in general, for example. Things that, from an outside perspective, I really shouldn’t have a problem with. But I do.
It’s a similar situation for right vs. wrong. I’ve always seen gay rights as something that is necessary in this society, while I’ve always thought that the wars that America, or any country for that matter, engage in are awful and cause only death and harm. There are certainly those that will disagree with both of those points, though.
Which leads me to ask this question: what is “right”, and what is “wrong”? What do you think? Like last week, anyone can reply.
Looking forward to see what you guys think.
