Moral Relativism: Is There Right?  What Is Right?

http://www.reasonsforgod.org/the-best-reasons/moral-relativism/

——————–

It is said that there are many truths, and that we each choose our own; or that truth is ‘constructed’ out of society, culture, and language.  Truth, then, is contingent on personal or societal history, and subject to change and revision.  But this leads directly back to power, for when one person’s ‘truth’ clashes with another’s, both ‘truths’ stand on equal ground.  There is no higher court to appeal to.  Neither truth can be judged more true than the other. So the matter can only be decided according to who wins.  The reigning truth at any time is determined by whichever side has won the last battle.  This is not anti-relativistic prejudice saying this, by the way.  Postmodern theorists acknowledge candidly that on their view, power takes the place formerly thought to be held by truth in human interactions.

[The irony (actually, hypocrisy) about Cameron’s statement, of course, was that he is a member of the liberal Labor party, which has all but driven the engine of moral relativism in Britain for much of the last century. Go figure.]

Yahoo CEO caught lying about his degree as academics meet to discuss ways to teach ethics in a post-modern world

Thompson’s fall from grace is just one example of the steady erosion of moral standards in the collegiate setting and, by extension, the workplace — a trend that college ethics professors are trying to reverse.  But one Christian professor says they’re going about it the wrong way, focusing on the results, rather than the underlying motivations for ethical lapses.

If you are a relativist, to insist that other people should be a relativist, or that relativism is true for them even if they disagree, is to contradict your own point of view.  A consistent relativist would never try to make someone else a relativist; after all, the point of relativism is ‘to each his own.’
