If you've read any of the news lately, especially about government and business, you know how much effort some people put into doing the right thing, or at least appearing to do so. But when a person or organization makes an effort that appears to be an attempt to do the right thing, are they really doing the right thing?
Most of us know of efforts which were thought to do the right thing which actually were not. A school which admits a new student who has little chance of graduating, a graduate with a diploma but no real preparation for applying it, or people unprepared for their new jobs are only a few examples. And, of course, there is the other problem of over-scrutinizing the credentials of someone who "doesn't look like the rest of us".
The question is simple: how can we do the right thing and be sure of being right in how we do it?
