Moral Relativism is destroying Western culture

“In argument about moral problems, relativism is the first refuge of the scoundrel.” Roger Scruton No culture can stay afloat without a moral compass to guide them.

No culture can stay afloat without a moral compass to guide them. In fact, Peter Kreeft argues, “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.” In the following video, Mark Dice demonstrates how easily moral relativists embrace the most extreme examples of immorality.

Michael Novak wrote: “For them it is certain that there is no truth, only opinion: my opinion, your opinion. They abandon the defense of the intellect; those who surrender the domain of the intellect make straight the road to fascism. Totalitarianism is the will-to-power unchecked by any regard for truth. To surrender the claims of truth upon humans is to surrender Earth to thugs. Vulgar relativism is an invisible gas, odorless, deadly that is now polluting every free society on earth. It is a gas that attacks the central nervous system of moral striving. ‘There is no such thing as truth,’ they teach even the little ones. ‘Truth is bondage. Believe what seems right to you. There are many truths as there are (many) individuals. Follow your feelings. Do as you please. Get in touch with yourself.’ Those who speak in this way prepare the jail of the twenty-first century. They do the work of tyrants.”
