It all really depends on your relative position in space and time.
For instance, if you were an Aztec some several hundreds years ago, it would be a good and proper just and right thing to pay some sort of approving
homage to bloody human sacrifices where hearts were ripped still beating from the chests of live victims.
Were you a New Guinea or New Zealand Maori head-hunter/cannibal when that culture was fashionably chopping people's heads and feasting on the flesh of
their enemies, well, you'd be bursting with pride, joy, and happiness, completely in the know that you were doing the right, proper, and justified
thing to chop the heads of your enemies and eat their flesh.
If you were in a position as an Inquisitor for The Church during the famous Inquisitions, then you'd be doing to right and proper justified thing in
using any and all means necessary through brutal and inventive torture to force a confession from people accused of consorting with the dark forces of
Evil. Evil is sneaky you know, and you can't be gentle with Evil. Has to be forced to truth with fire, burning pokers shoved into sensitive
orifices, broken bones, and other methods.
It's all entirely justified, proper and the right thing to do because you'd be working for The Church, the side of holiness, virtue, and all things
good and just.
Throw another witch on the fire!
Terms like "Good" and "Evil" can switch places depending on your perspective in Space and Time.
