People Share The Things We Can All Agree Are Morally Wrong

Sadly, we live in a world that cannot seem to enforce basic human rights, even when those human rights have been commonly accepted by the international community as a standard to which we must strive.

Violence against women persists, even if much of the world acknowledges that it is wrong. What else is happening out there that we can all agree is pretty much reprehensible?

People shared their thoughts, from the humorous to the serious, after Redditor InfiniteBus599 asked the online community,

"What is something that we can all agree on being morally wrong?"

"Putting car crash noises..."

"Putting car crash noises and sirens in radio commercials."

These are an accident waiting to happen. Why has no one done anything about this yet?

"Buying up..."

"Buying up a whole community’s water source and selling it back to them."

Nestle has some of the most damaging business practices on the planet.

"I saw a documentary..."

"Insulin price gouging. I saw a documentary on this because it didn't happen in my country and let me just say, holding people to literal ransom over life-saving drugs is seriously some evil stuff."

Welcome to life in the United States!

"Putting an empty box..."

"Putting an empty box of cereal back in the cabinet instead of getting rid of it."

You just described what my cousins did throughout my childhood. I always knew they were terrible people.

"Being rude..."

"Being rude to workers when they've done nothing wrong."

Taking your frustrations out on service industry workers who haven't done anything to deserve your vitriol is pretty terrible, I agree.

"The McDonald's ice cream machine."

"The McDonald’s ice cream machine. They are morally obliged to be more reliable. A heart can only be broken so many times."

This is why you need to go to Wendy's, just saying.

"Killing someone..."

"Killing someone for no reason. Like just deciding to murder a stranger."

BugBoy760

Serial killers would not agree with you on that one.

"Rounding up civilians..."

"Rounding up civilians and prisoners, tying their hands behind their backs, and shooting them in the back of the head as you're pulling out of a war zone. Nazis did that in my country and now we're seeing it happen again but guess there's nothing we can do, amirite."

The atrocities committed in Bucha are truly something. The silence of much of the international community is deafening.

"Sneaking in..."

"Sneaking in Japan's Suicide Forest and recording a dead body on a tree while laughing with your friends."

WabbieSabbie

The video you're talking about led to YouTube completely revamping its monetization policy which caused a lot of small YouTube channels to lose their monetization.

"Using..."

"Using and taking advantage of someone."

No_Leader2711

Yes! Treating people as a means rather than as an ends in themselves. I'd rather be alone than with someone using me for their gain.

Sadly, we can't all agree on some of the issues that should be obviously morally wrong, such as child abuse. It's quite the world we live in.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
