Always in this mood
Today in exposing psychological mechanisms- the relativist that strives to do “God’s work” of forming perception so that all cultures are equal, does it for themselves. That’s a relaxing way to think. It allows them to put off responsibility essentially. When baseness doesn’t exist, they lose the voice of conscience in their head to be noble. It might seem they’re trying to do good for others- really it’s a lot about how easy it is to live as a relativist. What’s stopping a True Leftist™️ from gaining expertise on Adorno or something for instance? That would be a noble thing for a leftist to do. When the relativist looks around at other cultures, that sort of higher demand isn’t there. Thus they sink back, relaxed, knowing that sort of burden isn’t placed on them. Cultural relativism is the silencing of the voice of responsibility.
