Wrong is Wrong

To paraphrase Malcolm X: Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says otherwise.

It is wrong to be in Iraq, killing people.

It is wrong for the government and its citizens to treat people differently, depending on the concentration of melanin in their skin or the curl in their hair.

It is wrong to donate money to unseen charities while stepping over vagrants lying on the sidewalk.

It is wrong to be selfish, where any action that you support or initiate in order to improve your condition detrimentally affects the condition of another.

It is wrong to intake any chemical that affects your judgement or reflexes, and then drive a vehicle.

It is wrong to strike another human being out of anger.

It is wrong to take, without compensation and/or without permission, from another unless your livelihood depends on it.
