No culture has survived moral relativism

Peter-KreeftMoral relativism is the “politically correct” orthodoxy of our moldy culture. In the minds of the mind-molders, nothing is worse than “intolerance,” and moral absolutism is intolerant. Thus the popularity of sayings like “Don’t impose your values on me,” “Different strokes for different folks,” and “Live and let live.”

No culture in history has ever embraced moral relativism and survived. Our own culture, therefore, will either (1) be the first, and disprove history’s clearest lesson, or (2) persist in its relativism and die, or (3) repent of its relativism and live. There is no other option.
