Moral Relativism

I do not believe in absolute right or wrong, or good and evil.

Without context, there can be no meaning, comprehension or relevance.

Ideas can not stand alone. We can point with our monkey fingers at theories and grunt at the shadows and the depths our humble brains fill them with, but our minds are too small and finite to comprehend an 'absolute' anything. That elephant has more parts than our blind hands can touch.

Absolutes are irrelevant. Context gives things meaning and value. Consequence and intent determine tolerable acts from intolerable ones.

Without context... there is only nonsense.
