Learning from mistakes.

  1. May 8, 2004 #1
    We all learn from our mistakes or observing others with thier mistakes. Seems like the more pain or bigger mistakes usually include more important lessons we learn from those mistakes.
    So i wonder if we are making a mistake as human beings rather then just indivisually. :eek:

    What are doing thats right but should be wrong?
    Like slavery, which was right to the government at one time and should have been wrong.

    Slavery has been going on for thousands of years. Not for the government but for personal gain.

    Well right now we pretty much live in a world that is governed. Where people vote on who leads us. They pretty much base their laws on what majority agrees as right.
    I was using slavery as an example. But one thing i feel that is right by the government and should be wrong is tobacco.
