Moral Relativism: Do I Look Fascist In These Pants?
I am convinced that there is a lot more leeway in most aspects of life than there are at the extremes. The designated hitter rule has it's good and bad sides. Genocide of humans is always a failure and a criminal form of behavior. There are behavior patterns that are of themselves not very objectionable in an individual but when practiced strictly by a city, state, or nation quickly become hideous. Religious piety, for instance, often produces quite favorable results with individuals and vicious excess when practiced universally.
I believe that there are absolute moral truths that exist, but only within finite boundaries. Genocide of mosquitoes is not always a failure or criminal behavior.
