right and wrong

Passing thought ...

How often does it occur that there is a great sense of injustice or cruelty or just plain wrong-ness?

Nothing necessarily wrong about that.

But wouldn't it be a further mistake to imagine that just because what is wrong is 'obvious,' that therefore the observer knows to a certainty what is right?

Consider: What is now wrong or unjust or cruel was once considered right by someone. Whatever the reasons, still it was right....

As right as the right-ness now assumed by the one who can point out something wrong.

Screwing up a wet dream is woven into the human DNA, I think. Improvements come and improvements go. Righteousness is extra.

A little humility never hurt the bright lights of imagination.
