What about leading by example? Isn't that why we're supposed to set examples? You can influence others choices and behaviors. That's why you should pick your friends wisely.

Can we ever truly make anyone do anything?

My Lady,
I ask of moral Right not intimidating force

My question remains - can we ever truly make anyone more morally thoughtful?

My Lady,
My answer would have to be no. Once force/manipulation is involved then strictly moral motivation is lost. Like a horse trainer once said......the best we can do is to make the right thing easy and the wrong thing difficult to do, but to deny the choice is to declare war.
