People give because they gain something from it, whatever it may be. Absolutely. They "believe" that is this is the right thing. Again based on their limited assumptions of the person or the situation and thier belief system. We can take that event and dissect it on a multitude of moral perspectives and view it as an assault, imposition, etc. It is a matter again of point of view. What then constitutes right and wrong in any situation? Is it a matter of perspective?

In the end we can only and truly judge a person by their actions and how it affects us. Action is not self standing. It`s judgement is always in the context of the reaction of the witness or victim.

What is the right thing? Don`t let me get started on the passive-aggressive and manipulative actions of advertising. Do you really need that new SUV? Let them make me feel good to buy that product that will end up harming the enviroment and myself. Did I want that? Are they helping me? Did you ever ask what they really believe in?

In the end a man`s action is truly justified by what he believes in. So much that he would kill you.
