Jordan, responding to your first question: Those with a discerning moral conscience have a strong say in identifying - distinguishing between - right and wrong behaviors: those, more often than not, that involve the violation of ones human rights are - by those with discerning moral consciences - considered wrong. More often than not, such wrongs are not matters of mere opinion differences. Take time to read The Declaration of Universal Human Rights to get an idea about the scope of what the world community considers are human rights. Yes, everyone has an opinion. However, some opinions are "better" than others because they are more solidly grounded in verifiable facts. The young figure skaters poor analogy may indicate the sloppiness in his reasoning. Good luck in deciding what is right and what is wrong!
