What about self defence? What about pre-emptive force? What about to protect your family? What about killing someone who will blow up the world?

Should you never kill?

I see collective morality as the ongoing negotiation of different private moralities. So I agree

It will depend on the situation.Moreover the moral of each one.I believe that nobody have the right to kill a person.Death and Birth is purely divine.The final judgement us by God.So man have no right to kill anybody

@ diecinueve - Each individual may hold their personal morality. But that has nothing to do with their rights. For example, a highly religious person may think that gay marriage is immoral. However that doesn't change their rights or the rights of gay people. Laws are determined by the government, supposedly based on what is best for society.

@ Allirix - Morality is both a communal thing as well as a private one. We have collective morals that society agrees on, but we also have our personal morals. For example, as a society we find pedophilia to be immoral, but other forms of sexuality to not be immoral. But many people would disagree on which forms of sexuality are or are not moral.

Morality is the collective values and principles of everyone in a society, not an anomaly. Some dude with different views doesn't suddenly change how society will enforce its own views. We're not that tolerant yet, and hopefully never will regress to such a destructive level of tolerance.

If it depends on the belief of each person then if someone believes that it is not wrong to kill, do they have the right to do so?

That would depend on the circumstances and your personal moral beliefs. Is it wrong to kill someone who is trying to kill you? I would say no. Is it wrong to kill humans for sport? I would say yes.
