A Fine Line

I think that there is a "fine line" between evaluating an international organization based soley on moral and ethical issues or confining ourselves to the realm of practical efficacy. It would seem that the right thing to do is to base our evaluations on moral and ethical issues, yet realistically, that approach would not work. Everybody has different ideas of morales and different versions of ethics, and there would be too much debate all the time, or there would be complaints that someone's rights were being violated to some extent. However, if evaluations were based only on what is deemed practical, then there would be a lot of dissent because there would probably always be some moral wrong being committed. So, though it is impossible to perfectly balance practicality with sticking to morality, it is possible to work toward keeping that "fine line."
