Free will allows you to either decide to do the right thing in life or do the wrong thing. Make this choice because you know and feel it is right, not because you are commanded to do so!

Too bad some people need the crutch of a promise of life everafter in heaven and the fear of burning eternally in hell, to make the right choices(which half the time are the wrong choices anyway). Stop being a pawn and be your own king as everyone else should also be. Everyone is your equal so love them all!!

Look in your heart and you mind and logically figure out what is right for the world using your own heart, not just to futher your own religion and life!!!!
I'm pretty sure Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo were all following their own path of rightness when they collectively exterminated million of "undesirables" and "subhumans." You must be right when you say there is no higher authority to set a universal standard of morality and justice. Let everyone do what he or she thinks and don't judge.

Damn that arrogant FDR and Churchill! How DARE they presume to tell another human being what is right and wrong. I'm sure the world would be much calmer and more peaceful if Allied leaders had just listened to you and not interfered. Deutschland Uber Alles!

There is no god and there is no devil. There are just men and women in our society.

Why is Stalin so often overlooked? He was a butcher without peer.
