any right actions is moral

Your explanation was 3 words long, lacked any description or reasoning, and you literally wrote down the motion of the argument without presenting any points whatsoever. You proved nothing on your end. But never mind that, focusing on my argument now.

Morality is defined as what you personally think is "right" based on your own ethics and values, because of this, morality is very subjective, and everyone has their own moral guideline. And because it's very subjective, it would differ from culture to culture and person to person. Let's take North Korea for example, they don't find it immoral to break human rights laws, and treat their citizens very badly, whilst the rest of the world do think it's immoral. Does it mean that it's "right" to treat people really badly? Essentially, morality isn't what is objectively right, it's what is "considered" right, and we all know opinions are always going to differ, why do you think we're having this debate right now? Conflicting opinions. And opinions are the catalysts that form morals.

That analogy does not prove anything. Especially something as broad as opinions. There are a lot of things that may seem obvious, but to some people are not. Like the North Korea example, which is something happening in real life, in comparison to your flawed analogy. But even dismissing that invalid argument. You still haven't even touched on the bulk of my comment, I'm going to assume it's because you can't rebuttal my points, but that's still no excuse for having half a sentence that facades as some sort of argument. My points about how morality is defined as what you find right, not what actually is right all the time.

No. Because to a criminal right might mean robbing someone. It's actually very simple. RIght=good=anything that is good is beneficial to yourself AND others. Anything that is wrong=evil=is anything that is destructive to yourself AND others. The interpretation of what is constructive and what is personally destructive changes from person to person but some things are universally considered destructive.
