Absolutes

Are there acts you think are wrong and should not be done no matter what?  Some of the authors of this site think that there are.  For example, torturing an innocent child for the sake of entertainment is always and everywhere wrong.  We believe that most users of this site may countenance subjecting a child to some hardships to serve a greater good, but if the torture is truly torture (severe, permanent, agonizing damage) and there is no greater good of any kind (except giving pleasure to someone like the Roman Emperor Nero or Caligula), we propose that most if not all of us would see this as absolutely wrong.
