🙉 🙊 🙈


The three wise monkeys are a Japanese pictorial maxim, embodying the proverbial principle "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil".[1] 

The three monkeys are

  • Mizaru (見ざる), who sees no evil, covering his eyes
  • Kikazaru (聞かざる), who hears no evil, covering his ears
  • Iwazaru (言わざる), who speaks no evil, covering his mouth.[2]
  • Lafcadio Hearn refers to them as the three mystic apes.[3]
  • Three wise monkeys - Wikipedia

Best examples I can think of for either one or two wrongs making a right, is with spying. Espionage and counter-espionage. Spying involves lying, stealing and deceiving which are wrong. Now, countries (and corporations for that matter) don't allow others to spy on them but they do it to others so it breaks the golden rule, but they want the intelligence so justify it with the old idea of 'the ends justify the means'. Do what I say not what I do etc.   Counter-espionage is when you spy on the spies so it's two wrongs making a right of catching the other guys doing to us what we're also doing to them 🤔
