Interesting, though a bit vague! Mostly, I would agree that harming people is incorrect and should be avoided as much as possible. But, in my view, there are reasons where it might be okay such as self-defense in a potentially life-threatening situation. It also depends on how you define harm; you might hurt someone's feelings by telling them they drink too much, but it might also save their life if they have heart problems or serious alcoholic tendencies etc.

I don't know if you would count these instances as incorrect "harm" or not.

Thank you for taking time to answer.

I define Harm as a [physical] action
one person performs upon another person without permission [or forgiveness]

  • Self defense is justifiable in context (acting party wrong, redefined).
  • Hurt feelings is not a result of Harm
    [insults in a foreign language is a good example:
    . any effort to be offended by what you may have misinterpreted.]

If you are okay with those points I would take this discussion private
