@mikethemazz,

Right and wrong exist for humans. We can’t ask if something is “inherently” right or wrong, as if it mattered to the universe. A mistake a lot of people make is assuming an act must be right only if it were also right if humans didn’t exist. That’s the equivalent of saying “if the moon didn’t exist, would we still have a moon?” It’s utter non-sense.

The problem really lies in defining the spectrum–of right and wrong–objectively. It should look some thing like this(in my opinion):

unnecessary gratuitous suffering———————————————Prosperity

Where the left side of the spectrum is bad, and the right side good.
