An Oxymoron!. that's what each pair is called; defined as a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms,meaning terms which are most often in opposition to each other.This figure of speech is consistently used and accepted within the English Language,but does the same acceptance apply when contradictory actions occur in reality!. I listened to this news report about a woman who broke into a house not to steal anything or destroy any personal belongings,not for any selfish reason,but rather to engage in cleaning of the house.In this situation "Breaking In" would obviously be the negative and "cleaning" would be the positive....I brought this example up however to bring forth the question "whether it is or should be socially acceptable to engage in and unacceptable action for an acceptable cause,in other words,Doing something bad in order for something good to come out of it.
IS THIS THE OXYMORON OF LIFE CALLED "WRONGFULLY-RIGHT"...*just a random thought*Whats your take?
Is "breaking in" actually breaking in if it's your own house?
Is it acceptable "language"? I don't care.
