He is a relativist himself.

I used to like that guy but then I realized his politics are all over the spectrum. There is very little consistency in his thinking.

And yes, relativism in general is killing us....literaly.

Disagree... Moral relativism has always been with mankind in the guise of cultrual relativism. Since there's more than one culture, there cannot be an absolute.

Absolutists are those numb skulls that believe that 'they'd rather be raped and killed by an attacker rather than shoot him' because 'all' life is sacred.

People whether they are the voters or the politicians who think they have the right to my hard earned money or have the right to stick their noses in my personal affairs is the big problem- aka socialism/communism. I don't give a rats ass about other peoples morals just let me be.

Agree or disagree?


It depends on what is meant by "biggest problem".

Moral relativism invading centers of learning and the Gov't, sure that's a problem.

Moral relativism rejects the idea of absolutes, ie some things are always wrong or right.

In one sense, I would argue that moral relativism doesn't exist. Those that declare no absolutes are in fact stating what they believe as an absolute.

A bit off topic, but for example... those that encourage "diversity" only encourage the elements of "diversity" that agrees with their own absolutes. Find a liberal female that "celebrates diversity" (ie all cultures are equally valid) and ask her how she feels about female circumcision. She will hate it, thus imposing her "superior" culture" on the poor african female. Hypocrite.

We all believe in absolutes. Just which ones are what we argue about. Christians base their absolutes on the Bible, libtards on what they personally "feel" is right, muslims on the Koran, etc.

I think the biggest dangers to our culture are.......

political correctness

cultural pessimism

modern liberalism

These things have convinced most of the USA's impressionable youth that we are the bad guys. The press, high school teachers, college proffessors, and celebrities(...all libtards I might add) are the perpretrators of this baloney. It is going to have the most severe consequences for us in the next 25 to 50 years.

I urge anyone who hasn't already done so to read "The Death of the West" by Pat Buchannan.
