Re: Moral questions
Life when we are born is all about our immediate circumstances, so sadly enough it is never truly equal. But if you weigh one person's life towards another's then yes, morally they are both equal but circumstances, relations and philosophy are what kills that more righteous moral stance.

Killing.... goodness that´s a wide subject to debate upon. Personally I don´t find it inhuman, we are part of nature after all, not it's overlords no matter how far we push into the technological world it´s still just like animals and parasites adapting to survive and every organism holds some amount of greed. Preferably killing is something to be avoided, but when it truly is self-defense then that´s the way it has to play out sadly. But if it´s for the sake of vengeance for a lost loved one then I have no objections within my mind that excludes the avenger from our moral codes, come what may of the damned law. I´m normally seen as a very kind person with a big heart by my parents and friends, but that persona will die the same moment someone close to me dies, and I won´t make it quick on the one who did it. Sorry for using myself as an example, but that´s how I see it....
The world was never fair. The world itself answers under the law of nature: adapt and strive to survive. That hasn´t changed. This society we live in is just like an ant colony, no matter how far we stretch our limits of capability or understanding. I don´t truly believe fate holds a truly predetermined path for us, but it always seem to hold one based on circumstance and likelyhood. But I believe our true achievements are achieved where we break that hypothesis that fate is. No, the world isn´t fair but we have to make the best of it, if we have the will.
