This article gives a basic illustration about what moral relativism is. This introduction to the idea of moral relativism supports my thesis by illustrating its connection to erosion of social order. Evensky, J. (1998). Adam smith's moral philosophy: The role of religion and its relationship to philosophy and ethics in the evolution of society. History of Political Economy, 30(1), 17. This article is a review of philosopher Adam Smith’s theory that religious moral system are the evolutionary basis for social order. Smith illustrates how the religious moral system developed and evolved prior to a separate system of law to enable society to function in an orderly and productive fashion. This article demonstrates a logical rational that civilized orderly society is structured upon absolute moral values. The theory that moral principles are the foundation for social order and productivity are central to the thesis of my research paper. Gozzi, G. (2007). History of international law and western civilization. International Community Law Review, 9(4), 353-373. The author discusses the origin of law in Western Europe. Gozzi shows that the basis of modern European law evolved out of Christian countries. He contrasts the Christian origins of law with that of later developing countries.

Krebs, 2011 Oxford, UK, Oxford University Press US This article reviews the ideas put forth by Dennis Krebs in his book on the origins of morality. Krebs describes how morality are evolutionary prosocial behaviors developed to help animals participate and work together for survival. The idea presented that morality is the product of an evolutionary survival strategy. It is validated in its success of failure by species survival in a competitive environment.

The article makes a case that facilitating drug use with clean needles is an affective harm reduction strategy. My research paper will ask the question, is the moral relativistic idea of harm reduction is challenged by the recent exponential lethality of fentanyl. I will argue that moral relativistic strategy actually resulted in harm intensification. This article will provide a case on how moral relativism threatens social order. Schafer, K. (2012). Assessor relativism and the problem of moral disagreement. The Southern Journal of Philosophy, 50(4), 602-602. Schafer provides justification for arguments of moral relativism.
