In a completely arbitrary and subjective way. ;)

Well, we are talking about rightess as in good/bad rather than
correct/incorrect. It all comes down to the question "What do you want?"
You see, good and bad are entirely subjective. Once we have defined
these as axioms, we can derive courses of actions from there...
I have already said that what is defined as friendliness is pathalogical
at best, suffocating at worst...
