Morality: Noun - a particular system of values and principles of conduct, especially one held by a specified person or society.

This means that murder which puts an end to the life of someone else is morally wrong
That does not explain why killing the enemy in war is not moraly wrong or why some communities have some moral values which are widly different and contradictory to others. Trying to explain that is exactly why I started this thread.

The conclusion I drew was that morality is a communal idea of individual actions which support the community and that that operates on many different communities with some conflicting priorities in every person.
