  • I said A although I don’t think the poll encapsulated the options well. Under extreme or extenuating circumstances I may do something that I consider to be bad, but I typically think that justifiable.

    For example if I’m starving to death although I know stealing is bad I’ll likely steal to live. I think that’s justifiable, albeit still wrong. If someone greatly harmed a loved one I may take “justice” into my own hands, and know some people who have. I still think this wrong, but could justify it and am honest enough to admit that I could do it.

  • For minor things, yes. Like I'll indulge in fast food now and then, even though I know it's bad for me. There's some balance between temptation and conscience there, but I never go too extreme towards the route of temptation to doing truly unconscionable things.

    • That said, my sense of morality changes throughout my life. My idea of "morality" is merely a guide on how to make optimal decisions that will benefit me and others I care about in the long run absent perfect knowledge of what decision is best. And so I've learned some things over the years that has tweaked my sense of morality a bit just based on what I've learned to yield more optimal results.

  • My default mode is to do "the right thing".

    But I'm also not much for absolutes regarding right/wrong black/white.

    Some things are more clear than others.

    • So I do support abortion but if it comes to a point where in futurw, my future child (too young) get involve in this

      And both of them wants to raise their child, I would agree even though my moral says no

  • I voted A.
    Conscience is a very subjective word. Sometime what u think right may not be right. Its all about perspective. Sometimes u need to change other's perspective and sometimes u need to change your's. Because sometimes your own personal moral view of right may be wrong and vice versa. You cannot be right always.. Personal's moral sense of right or wrong depend upon the society where he grows. Society and culture plays a greater role in carving out person's conscience. So we should be tolerant towards other 's ideas and come towards a conclusion by healthy debates.
