I suppose if its your kids.
Hmmm... I'll say only the ones we universally agree upon, like murder and stealing. <br />
When we look at different cultures with different values we should be careful and respectful about imposing our values on them. <br />
Even this is tricky. When we look at paternal cultures like Islam or Mormons, who see women as inherently less than men, it's hard to stand by and be respectful of those values.
Might is right!
unless that are damaging others-no
I think its okay to show your moral compass to others but not everyone's is going to point north some is going to point east, west, or somewhere inbetween. As long as no one is getting hurt by it, it shouldnt matter what direction it points. So take a look at someone else's too. You might end up making a change of course yourself.
No, it is not, just because feel it is right dose not mean that it is the be all to end all answer. More often than not,when u take approach, chances are ur already stepping on someones beliefs
Sticking to one's morals sets an example for others without the need to impose.
If it's my standards then I have no right apart from the right to disagree or defend my opinion and freedom to express it. <br />
However as a community or nation these yes we not only have a right we have a duty in order to maintain law and order. This why we live in a (so called) democracy.
No, it's not
The nice, easy answer is no but the reality is people do it all the time.
Not to impose but to let others know what your own mopral standards are on the matter. The defensive mechanism doesnt kickin and others, most of the time, are more receptive to hear what you have to say, but to impose....nah
It's just presumptuous that anyone has that right.
No. That's exactly one of the core principles of colonization by the way.<br />
Just to give you a concrete example.
Yes. Rape, murder and mayhem need to be discouraged.
That is not an immoral standard- that is universally criminal
it is if God is on your side, Like he is mine...
