Some people believe in moral relativism which is the belief that moral standards are not universal, but rather vary depending on culture and situation. Do you agree with this or do you think that morality should be an absolute for all people in all situations?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
I do believe in the concept of moral relativism. Different nations and people around the world have different cultures, religion and even beliefs. It would thus be ignorant of anyone to think that all standards of morality can be uniform around the world. History has shown time and again that the concept of morality is relative to individuals and those who imposed their morals on others turned out to be judged harshly by history.
I do believe, however, that as the world turns into a global village, nations must come together and at least attempt to create certain standards of morality that are uniform. However, only parties to such agreements can be bound by the standards as imposing standards on others has been known to yield the wrong results.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
