    Morality Free Zone

    Morality is the distinction of rights and wrongs in choices, with the aim of a more enlightened outcome of any situation. The inherit problem with morality is that every noun can be assigned the value of "Evil" or "Good". Now this alone is a contradiction that leaves grey areas...
