You are too far gone

If you think killing little brown kids for no reason is right and just - then I can't help you. I am not here to get into a discussion of semantics and linguistics.

But, OK.

It is wrong to kill them because it violates their liberty, their property (their body/life). And, it violates the non-aggression principle of libertarian philosophy. It is also the same as capital punishment without a trial or due-process, violating the Constitution - The rights in the Bill of Rights apply to everyone, not just Americans. Murder of an innocent has been considered wrong for thousands of years, but obviously we can only go as far back as the first cuniform tablets. The Code of Hammurabi is the earliest written law and accounts for murder. So, even prior to written language it can be reasonably assumed the idea existed.

Aside from the Code of Hammurabi, I got that information from my brain, because I have one.

If you want to make the argument that murder is only wrong to me personally and not universally through most cultures, that might be possible. But, highly unlikely. But, no doubt you will make up some malarky about a bearded man swimming in stars that puts murder right up there with the supreme wrong of eating shellfish, but thinks ripping open women's abdomens and smashing the fetuses on rocks is OK.
