    When I realized that I only thought it was right because everyone else thought it was right. I think a lot of our morals are developed only because that’s the norm, not because we have actually formed our own opinions about what is right. Maybe if we were more deliberate when defining our moral compass, we wouldn’t have such a problem with people adapting destructive traits from the environment that they’ve grown up in.
