Two stars for being pithy, otherwise what's the point? Cultural and individual definitions of what's 'right' or 'wrong' are so fluid in this world, that Asimov's thought is rendered moot in the end. Balance is the key - a key that cannot be located without the searcher bearing tolerance as his/her closest companion during the hunt.

Not quite sure how to rate this. An individual's morals may be in line with a socialist's perceived utopia or what he thinks 'should be' but, that doesn't prevent him from harmonizing with natural law - which is right. Mann above also makes a point. Could this address Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's Muslim morals, not preventing him from doing the right thing, like having a beer with his boy-friends ?

Contrary to natural laws of morality. Asimov's spin on homosexuality, must be considered a moral right. Siding with the New Deal of FDR and the democratic party. A warped overview of good and evil. Wanting equality but perverting all equity ( Uprightness, moral and ethical soundness.

Pithy, indeed! I like it.
