Dumbass Sayings: “Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right”

Let's stop kidding about Hitler, folks.
One of the most famous sayings of all-time, “Two wrongs don’t make a right”. It’s a nice sentiment and true in most cases, but it is ultimately a flawed concept. The most obvious example of this being wrong is World War II. Adolf Hitler committed a serious wrong when he decided to attempt world domination and start the Holocaust. America and its allies chose to fight fire with fire and exterminate the German and Japanese threat. Was it wrong to fight the Nazis? No, but it’s always considered wrong to kill people. In this case, the second wrong actually did make a right. So two wrongs can make a right. The real saying should be “Two wrongs don’t make a right, unless the first wrong is REALLY wrong because then by default, the second wrong is viewed as much less wrong in perspective and thereby allowable and able to create a right.”
