Be Right or Go Wrong book


by E Marie Bothe

All through the centuries people have believed they were free to behave as they chose, whether within the constraints of moral parameters or with total abandonment to their desires. Wetherill’s Right-Action Ethic™ is a lifestyle based on his identification of a natural law of behavior he called the law of absolute right: Right action gets right results. People who apply the Right-Action Ethic™ think it can stem the tide of wrong results washing across all levels of society here and abroad.


There is a well-known saying, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” History tells us that society has been sowing seeds of dissent throughout the centuries: Rulers dissent to rule, politicians dissent to be elected, ethnic groups dissent to control, parents and children dissent for the upper hand, and virtually everybody dissents to the reality of whatever is happening by emotionally taking sides politically, socially and spiritually.

In the 1920s the late Richard W. Wetherill was given insight into a law of behavior existing in nature and impacting people’s daily affairs without their awareness of its existence. As a result of conforming with that natural law, Wetherill was able to pursue several successful careers in his nearly seventy adult years as a teacher, training executive, author and management consultant.

Wetherill called the law of behavior, the law of absolute right: Right action gets right results, whereas wrong action gets wrong results. The law clearly establishes that right begets right and wrong begets wrong.

Do people know right from wrong? Some people would argue that nobody can know, because what is right for one is not right for another. Careful questioning reveals that many of those argumentative people know more about what is right than they are willing to admit. When they want to get their way, their attitude is one of “I know it’s wrong, but I’m going to do it anyway.”
