Dive deep in to the human self as this article takes us on a journey through time questioning our actions and answering our deepest identity questions. Where are integrity, equality and human values? What is right? What is wrong? Are we allowed to impart judgment on others if human is all we are?

Questions of Humanity.

What is right and what is wrong? Is a just crime a right thing, or a wrong thing? When is doing something for the greater good right, or wrong? Is defying the law to prove a point for the greater good right, or wrong? What do as humans base right and wrong with?


All these questions and more society is confronted with when someone does an evil for a greater good. We are conflicted by what the right thing would be, what we would have done in those people’s places. Often times we find ourselves weighing the consequences and in many ways jumping to conclusions. But who are we to judge? Who are we to condemn someone for something they did, even if it was for a greater good?

istory's Rights, or Wrongs.

How would we have judged Robin Hood if we had lived in those times? Would we have condemned him for taking from the rich, or applauded him for giving to the poor? What about those with medical knowledge in times of the plague? Would their conscience betray them for turning away from treating people for fear of inviting the plague in to their own homes? Would they be wise, or cowers? What about in times of WWII, when all Jew and those not fitting Hitler’s mold for perfection were so cruelly murdered and sent to concentration camps? Would someone be applauded for doing right by ratting them out of their hiding place, or a traitor for giving them aid? What about those of you who lived in the times of segregation, when blacks and whites were not allowed to mix? Would we have judged a white person wrong for giving and helping someone of different race or someone of different culture in these modern times? Would we have supported Martin Luther King’s dream, or judge him wrong like so many who opposed him did? Would we want to kill equality like those who killed him desired?

Questions of Today.

What about today? Who are we to take action and be prejudice against others for their skin color, their cultural preference, or even the language we speak, or god we decide to follow? Wouldn’t we who point and wrongfully judge be seen in those people’s eyes as the enemy, the ones who are doing wrong? Who are we to judge a father or brother to seek justice for their brutally raped daughter and sister who took her life? Who are we to take justice in to our own hands when the justice system is fraud and filled with corrupt politicians and members of society whose only desire is money? Who are we to go murdering innocents in the name of a god? Who are we to bring war to a family’s door step because their believes are not our own? Who are we to impart judgment on anyone?

The Answer.

The answer to that is: we are no one to judge others for how they look their actions, language, sexual preference, or even the god they worship. We shouldn’t be too quick to point fingers and condemn people for trying to do a greater good when we ourselves don’t have the guts to do so. We are no one to impose believes alien to their own to others in hopes of making them more appealing to our liking and easier to accept. We can’t go imposing and demanding peace and unity from others when we can’t keep that peace on our own soils. Can’t humanity see? We are all unique individuals, as diverse as snow flake, yet one in the same, because when we are stripped to the raw basics, human is all we are. Human with desires, hopes, dreams and free will and no one will ever take that from us!

we have laws set in place, mental institutions to do this. We have social workers and community workers, we have philosophers who have set up a universal code of ethics long before we were even born.

and thankgoodness for those laws and codes of ethic and conduct, if those questions are still hunting the human race, i can't imagine how much worse it would be without those laws and social structures to keep humanity in line.

If we were rich and robbed by Robin Hood we would see him as the villain, but if we were the person he gave things to he would be the hero. Everyone has a way of justifying the evil they do and not too many people admit to doing anything wrong.

true, people have issues with admiting when they are wrong, so they rather lie, continue on their way and not admit the flaw in their actions.

Thought provoking, GenkiWorld. Do unto others as we would have them do unto us - is always a good guide. Our beliefs have tendency to belittle others who don't follow them. That we are religious does not mean we are not petty. Unless we live in those times the actions took place, we will never know the emotions involved and that is why I take a view - let the dead bury their dead and let us live the present without bringing forward the baggage of the past - siva

yes because if we don't respect ourselves who will be there to properly respect us if we can't do the same even for those around us, let along for ourselves.

You are so right. Judge not and be not judged, says the good book, and besides, I just bet that if those who judged secrets were known, they would be a little less quick to judge. Only one thing. Robin Hood didn’t rob from the rich…He robbed from the government, the ruling class…Fantastic article.
