If a baby "can tell right from wrong," why is it so hard for government to do so?
Why is it so hard for business to do so?

Taking this to a new level, that baby would be better for the country than most so called leaders.

As they say, "out of the mouth of babes."

Well... Maybe because babies don't have any businesses on the side yet.. Their motives are still pure and free of corruption. Who knows ?

great now the government has a reason to put babies in jail.

So if I lie I can just say I'm trying to develop my brain? Since I'm still a teen my brain is still developing...

I suppose what I was getting at in my last post was that I think it's cool and all they can tell right from wrong, but it doesn't do us much good if that just helps them understand how to deceive earlier

More like from 2 to 10 or something. There are always those who need a bit longer tho.
You can try...

Please share what happens after with us.

Well... I thought it was cool. I hoped to have a little discussion about it.
Unfortunately someone blew up the thread a little.

Well... better luck next time.

Personally I don't have a clue what could be good or bad about this judging right from wrong.
In the end they are still helpless. But why and how i believe to be interesting. I mean what if they actually do remember their previous life or something ?

This is quite the interesting post.

I was aware an infant could 'sense' negative emotions, but never realize them.

What I question, however, is their loss of it towards their coming years.

I have heard of the 'terrible two' being a stage, and have seen it myself in two children [my niece and nephew] personally, and heard about it from various parents.

Could it be lack of parental guidance or proper aid in awareness?

I don't think it gets lost. I think it alters after every new experience. IMO right and wrong basically a personal perspective.

Maybe the baby does not know right from wrong but simply judge with there own personal feeling.

Maybe a stuffed animal has been taken from them, so they will punish a cat that takes something away...
