Right is Might book


by Richard W Wetherill

You can discover why Right really is Might and how the natural laws of the universe make it a reality. This book is based on thirty years of research and experience, explaining the negative consequences of unethical behavior in both personal and public life. The book also explains how ethical behavior creates emotional health, personal joy and professional success.


Much is right in the world, but also much is wrong. This book is mostly concerned with what is wrong. It is not a book of criticism and condemnation. It is one of explanation, optimism and hope. It promotes the doctrine that we, as individuals, can save our world. It advocates procedures with which each person can start by improving the satisfactions and rewards of his own life.

Little is wrong in the world except what is caused by people’s intentional or unintentional misdeeds. True, there are occasional earthquakes, floods, windstorms or famine. But the seasons go along in reasonably orderly succession, and the vegetation renews itself each year without fail. That has been true in the past, and although the pattern may change at any time, it will presumably be true in the future. So it is clear that nature is not the culprit. Most of everyone’s suffering is caused by people. There is no use dodging that basic fact.

This book rests on certain assumptions that are widely accepted today. One of those assumptions is that society sadly needs relief from the wrongs caused by men. Another is that there cannot be the needed relief without a moral awakening that will open new channels of individual and mass thought, leading to a gigantic swing in private and public opinion. Another is that there must be reliable yardsticks and procedures for diagnosing those ills, for prescribing their cures, and for seeing that the cures are made effective. This book is one man’s effort to define those yardsticks and procedures.

Right Is Might can also be purchased in print and in other eBook formats
