What is right?

 

An interesting question. Don’t you agree? What is right…

I often wish I knew myself. Funny how we go about our days distinguishing this or that as judicious and true…while knowing these are labels we assign. They are decided; they are not found. And yet we comfortably assume unanimity in our assignments, as if there’s truly naught but “fact” to feel.

“Murder is wrong.” “Life is good.” “People first.” “Intentions matter.” Things that we don’t question because they’re so inexpressibly obvious—so obvious they simply cannot not be true. He who giveth answers taketh away our understanding; he who understandeth is a fraud?

No.

“What is right?” A question I cannot, will not answer. For you even less so than for me.
