    good question ...... and have u noticed that most people are looking for the empirical right or wrong system to no avail....... good or bad are subjective values in the mind ...... our collective good and bads have changed within the years and some good and bads even change daily depending on the circumstance that subjective value judgement is being applied to....

    there is a collective consensus to a large degree that killing is bad ......... unless it is done in the name of national security.........
    there is a collective consensus to a large degree that stealing is bad ........ unless it is used as a means to a "good" end....

    in the not so long distanced past...... it was morally wrong/bad/abomination in the european/north american collective for a human being of black race and a human being of Caucasian race to have a relationship of any kind that points to oneness at some level between the two(such relationships was seen as bestiality ) ....... Segregation between the two was the right order set by GOD according to the overseers of that law.....

    right or wrong are subjective values within ur mind and imaginations ..........

    if something exists, it is necessary otherwise it will not exits, the judgement of existence is in the realm of the mind..........

    actions stem from thoughts, state of mind, and feelings ........ and so what ever moral subjective values u place on a particular action will naturally reflect ur judements of the mental thoughts they sprang from
