My views are:
The following might help to understand this issue
a bit better.
Of any two options choose the third
A judge in a village court had gone on vacation. As per the local rules, Nasrudin was asked to be a temporary judge for a day. Nasrudin sat on the Judge's chair with utmost serious face and gazed around the public in audience and ordered that first case be brought-up for hearing.
"You are right," said Nasrudin after hearing one side.
"You are right," he said after hearing the other side.
"But both cannot be right," said a member of public sitting in the audience.
"You are right, too" said Nasrudin to the person in public.
1.. Those that are less than right, often keep to the left.
a.. When everybody thinks they are right, the truth gets left behind.
2.. Judge not that ye may not also be judged.
3.. Accentuate the positive.
4.. Sympathy is as important to a judge as judgement.
5.. Don't be afraid to look beyond both sides of an argument.
6.. If you can only see two sides of an argument you are missing something.
7.. Forgiveness is divine
8.. Even judges can be fools
9.. Everybody is right, in their own respective ways.
10.. Justice is not always just.
11.. It is easy to be 'right' from one's own perspective.
12.. The person who says that you are 'right' might be wrong.
