who should determine what is "right"? posted 14 March 2006 in Philosophy Discussionwho should determine what is "right"? by gierra, Sorcerer-of-Rank

well, one the one hand, i would say that it is up to the individual to decide what is right. however, what if one person thinks it is right to kill someone out of revenge? it is up to those who are in power to set out some rules and guidlines as to what is right and wrong.

i don;t think those who are in power should decide upon things that are individual.

for example, marijuana is illegal. they think it's wrong to smoke it. however, that should be something that is up to an individual to decide upon. holding the door for an elderly person is right, but people don;t do it as much as they should.

certain things that affect other people should be outlined by the masses and those in power. things that only affect yourself whould be decided upon by yourself. view post
