Who's to say what's right and what's wrong.

We spend our entire time growing up being told what's right and what's wrong. And those are just facts of life for us. The unshakable faith that we have in those who guide us at home and outside overrules a very simplistic curiosity which does not even comprehend the differences
between right and wrong.
There comes a time in everybody's life when the line marking the difference between the two turns hazy. Thats when your curiosity turns into judgemental analysis. You begin seeing beyobnd black and white. You see different shades of grey that make all the differece to your line of thought. The line no longer remains a now becomes a band. You are disillusioned with the very concepts of right or wrong.

Circumstances force you to see beyond right and wrong. Some things are just that neither right nor wrong, or both right and wrong at the same time. Which brings us back to the question..What exactly are our actions then?? are they neither right nor wrong? or are they both at the same time. Life is in need of many judges to validate the choices that we make.

As we are that fuddled about the very existence of right or wrong, it is safe to assume that classificaton of our actions cannot happen in those ways. There is no right, there is no wrong. There can only be what's fair and what's not. And when life throws the kitchen sink at you and it hits you hard. Isn't it unfair that you are getting a beating? Or is it only fair that you are getting a sign to get your act together.

Acts based on fairness or the lack of it inevitably have consequences. And these conbsequences leave a path of destruction in its wake, tearing up people from the inside, without leaving any outwardly sign. Nothing to let others know about the tormentor inside them. Consequence and circumstance are above any form of judgement, aren't they?

There is no right no wrong no fair no unfair consequence or circumstance. When circumstance rules everything that you do, and that in turn leads to a consequence you wouldn't have foreseen...shouldn't your actions be above such judgement as well??

Who are you ? and what did you do with Soda?

Good stuff, Soda. I especially like the last bit - there is no right, no wrong, no fair, no unfair.
Judgement? I'd say, hell yeah, everyone should be above judgement. But again, that's just an opinion.
