[Huckleberry] What does Huck mean when **** base future ethical decisions on whichever comes handiest? He was saying when it's troublesome to do right,and ain't no trouble to do wrong. I don't get it.
"whats the use you learning to do right when it's troublesome to do right,and aint no trouble to do wrong. So I reckoned I wouldnt bother no more about it, but after this always do whichever comes to handiest at the time." Mark Twain
Now what I need to know is this.. What do you think Huck means when he say he'll base future ethical decisions on "whichever comes handiest"? Do you think Huck's new rule of thumb for solving ethical problems is sound? Take a position defending or opposing Huck's rule. Give 2 reasons for the position and support each position with examples or facts.
