When people are all geared up for some killing actions, whoever kills a person would be called a hero, i.e., one who has rendered outstanding service. When all the people are against killing, whoever kills a person would be deemed as a savage, i.e., one who has committed a brutal crime. It seems that the criterion determining such behaviour as being right or wrong, meritorious or criminal, is only the majority’s collective preference at the time instead of a clear principle based on causality. As a result, the human history has been riddled with brutalities and violence.
