  1. That’s very true, your conscience begins with what you’re taught as a child. Being brought up catholic I know the difference between wrong and right. For catholics there is no grey area, no room to be incorrect about your decision.

    It sure would be much easier if everything was a majority vote, pros vs cons. Life just doesn’t always work that way.

    1. Thanks Maria. It’s a tough one, but regardless of religion or culture, I feel we should all comply to the same rules. I think you’re right, things would be much easier if everything was based on a majority vote, particularly with something like our conscience. We need to do the right thing.

      I don’t think there should be any grey areas. Grey areas means we’re not always accountable and we need to be. Perhaps that’s where we’re going wrong in the world.

  2. I absolutely agree with this quote. Unfortunately many people just don’t listen to their conscience, preferring to be herded along with the majority.

    1. Yes I have seen that too and agree. It’s a shame because we’d certainly change the way we think about things, if we we’re to use our conscience more.

      If more of us used our conscience more we’d all be in a better place, particularly with each other.
