Humanity: wight and rong

Hello again. This week I thought we would dive into the concept of right and wrong.

Each person has their own deep thought on what is right and what is wrong. This is a major problem we have in the world. Not only because each person differs in his or her ideas, but that people take those differences out of proportions by exploiting the “wrong” ideas.

For example, the 9/11 terrorist attack can be seen two different ways. The way American’s see it is that what the terrorists did was a wrong against our ethical and moral values. However, with the extremist terrorists, they thought what they were doing was right in the sense of their religion.

The rights and wrongs of this example are fueled by universal ideas that have been created through people’s senses and judgments.

I am not saying that what the terrorists did was right in any sense, but that there was a reason behind their actions that can be relatable. For most of us, religion is something we hold dear. We would do just about anything for our religion, given it follows our rules and beliefs.

In doing so, it is hard to tell how other people will take it. If we try to help someone, then we think we are doing something right, but if that person thinks that we are helping for a selfish reason, then they think what we are doing is wrong.

Personally, the concept of right and wrong can be explored in so many different ways that each right is a wrong and vice versa. One way is exploring the background of a person’s life. Other ways include looking at the person’s mind, social status, physical appearance, economic state, etc.

How this relates to the paranormal is simple. Some of us see these things of mystery as monsters known only for brutal attacks and evil deeds. However, in their sense, we could be seen as the monsters destroying their wooded homes, using high tech weapons to hunt for them, and doing it all for fame and fortune.

The big question now is what is a monster? This will be explored in the next blog so tune in next time to learn new things in a new light.
