Which, itself, is not always a problem.It's just one more example of how human concepts of ethics are relative.It all falls down to this...
We judge ourselves by intent; we judge others by results.
This is exactly how we consistently criticize others for doing the exact same thing we, ourselves do, on a regular basis.
It is also how we formulate "situation ethics". How we move the goal post of judgement for those we agree with, as opposed to those we do not.
This very thing is being played out, en masse, all across the nation.
The problem is when society, in the name of solving one problem, creates a fix that is actually the same mechanism that IS the problem they are attempting to fix. Or, when protesting one thing, engage in the exact same behavior while protesting the very same one.
