The Greater Good

leave a comment »

What exactly does that mean? For the greater good of whom or what? Does the well being of one out weigh the well being of many? Does one of set of people carry more importance than another set of people? Is an American’s or a European’s life worth more than an African’s life or a Mexican’s life? Is an employed person worth more to society than a homeless person? Where are the lines crossed? How can you justify your actions? You call yourself a Christian, or a Muslim or Jew, and yet you’ve forgotten what it means to be human. You’ve forgotten what it means to love. You weigh your conscience against a set of books and rituals, and yet the words stand empty and meaningless. So for the greater good, or for your greater good? Your intent is known.
