I’m 30yrs old now and I’d have to say
that I pretty much know what’s best for me by now. I’m not implying that I know everything, but I’ll be the judge of me and you be the judge of you.
I have absolutely no right to judge your beliefs and you have no right to judge mine.
What’s the point!
All beliefs and ethics are “relative” anyway!
I drink this Henny because I feel it’s what I want to do! Don’t judge me! Even if you believe its wrong…… Which one of us is right anyway? What you can’t handle might be fine for me.
It can be argued that in every rational person (the definition of “rational” is touchy subject I won’t explain for now) there are certain properties common to all. The problem ( well, one problem) with relativism is how it, nihilistically privileges the experience of the individual above all else, making every ethical decision the right ethical decision: who would not like to have his or her beliefs guaranteed to be as correct as anybody else’s? But this is done at the cost of ignoring our shared qualities, turning away from the fact that despite different languages and cultures (and continents and skin colors) we all believe some of the same things. With that striking fundamental truth removed, the Prostitutes and the Saints stand side by side, equals in righteousness. What do you think?
