Murder is wrong!! .. Isnt it? ... Oh wait, murder is wrong UNLESS it is in self defense, or you are at war, or the person "deserved it (death penalty). Yeah, that's it! Therefor, murder is not always "wrong". BUT ... we never think it is wrong to do such things as "feed the poor", despite the fact, me may just be strengthening the mask which covers a murderous greater evil. A greater evil such as a government that gains public support through charity such as "food for the homeless", and then through accumulative support is able to murder thousands of people in order to secure financial gain. In regards to the latter, feeding the poor, and anyone involved in it, is no morally different then the premeditated murder of an inncocent man. However we consider the death penalty as punishment for one who fed the poor as part of that government program preposterous?
It has become clear to me, that the entire world lives by the following philosophy: "What is wicked, may in any another conjuncture be just, yet what is just, may only in a completely different conjuncture be wicked"
Even with intentions revealed, we simply ignore the fact one could not be achieved without the other, and label only the more obvious as "wrong". However, it is not just the intentions, nor the actions of the villain himself that are "wrong", but also the ignorance of those who created the opportunity. Hence, if we wish our enforcement of consequences to be effective, we must enforce them equally upon every individual that enabled either directly or through ignorance, the actions we percieve as wrongdoing to occur.
