Is there a right way to do things?I wonder what is the right way to do something. If there is a right way to do things at all. Say, a debate is going on and a person slaps you for proving him wrong. You get shocked but don't reciprocate the gesture. Of course, what the other person did was wrong. But what you did may not be considered right by everyone, even if it was morally right. Someone would say that giving the other person the taste of his own medicine would have been the right thing to do. Someone would say if not a slap, a good verbal lesson to the other person would have been the right thing to do. Because people like them need to be taught, to be stopped from doing the wrong thing and to teach them to not do the wrong thing is the right thing to do. There would also be some people who would appreciate you for doing the morally right thing that you did.
I think the right thing that we do solely depends on our perception of the right thing to do in the moment. Yes, perception. What we feel is right, we do that even if it is questionable in the eyes of others. Our right thing gets influenced by our circumstances too. We analyse them all and then act, sometimes morally, sometimes immorally.
