How do you define right and wrong ? What is right to you may not be right to some one else (thats why we have arguments) or visa versa. There are few rights and wrongs universally accepted but rest all goes by the capability of an individual to justify his actions or the number of people consenting/opposing. What is actually the definition of right and wrong ?

The things defined under right and wrong aer society based and connected with virtue: We all know that something wrong here could not be wrong some where else! Because certain things are mostly decided by the circumstences! In general what ever is harmful to anybody is not right to do or to follow! But you can not say that it is totaly wrong! If right and wrong are based on values then also depends on things related. Yet there are effort done by to define the right and wrong in the refference of truth and its applicationin the living life: Hypothetically that is the best way to look at these things of right and wrong! What ever is related with the truth of living life and based on humanitarian aspect of applying is right and otherwise wrong!

You can talk for hours on this, but in simple If you feel it is right then it is right. If you feel it is wrong then it is wrong. Do not go by what society says or people say.
