68. sad indeed
Might makes right - morally right or wrong is defined by the winner in power (not right to me, but that is how it has always been).

I defined my own morality long ago - after going through fundie-ism, buddhism, atheism, lutheranism, and finally my own ideal of things (from a christian perspective).

IF we take an evolution perspective on things then the most fit will survive - but we are not animals, and should break out of that view.

We have evolved beyond such things as might makes right - but it still exists in our lives. When you attack someone who has more weapons than you, well you can expect to be decimated. And right or wrong, morally speaking, does not help you one bit.
