If there are no such things as right and wrong, then there would be nothing to prevent your neighbor from breaking into your house in the middle of the night and shooting you in the face.
The Purge event
In the late 2010s "The New Founding Fathers of America" have established a new totalitarian government and a police state, following economic collapse. In 2017, the 28th amendment of the U.S Constitution, is ratified. This amendment establishes one night a year – called "The Purge", which occurs on March 21 to 22 – in which all crime is legal and all police, fire, and medical emergency services remain unavailable for 12 hours from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. the next day. The only rules are that no government officials with authorization levels of 10 and higher are to be disturbed and all weapons above Class 4 (explosive devices such as grenades, rocket launchers, bazookas, etc.) are forbidden. Anyone who violates the rules of the Purge would be publicly executed by hanging. The purge has resulted in crime and unemployment rates plummeting to 1% and a strong economy. Although it is thought to be used as an act of catharsis for the U.S. populace, in reality, it is used as a method of artificial population control as the unemployed poor in slum neighborhoods are usually the main targets.
Thanks for taking time to answer the questions Op3nM1nd3d 1 agrees from their perspective things may seem acceptable, but what if those things "accepted" are/were to cause future problems? signaling further that, that which was accepted may of been wrong due to the problems caused later...
Now if the majority accepted certain activities and or behaviors that did not seem to cause future problems and may even assist in the future then, I guess then the majority was right, due to no problems caused and assistances made or accomplished that helped out.

In my opinion, no one should blindly follow a group think but rather process what is being proposed in his/her own head and then decide to agree or disagree and make his/her voice heard. But most of all, accept different opinion and therefore support individual thinking which over the history has helped us to make advancements in about every branch that we know of.
