What is relative morality? It means basing your morals on what those around you are doing. E.g. everyone else drinks (alcohol) so why shouldn't I drink? Everyone else lies and steals should why shouldn't I? Mindless conformity. And what is absolute morality? Morality that is timeless, that your inner conscience tells you (and common sense) is right, and that is often expressed by higher principles. E.g. Drinking alcohol is immoral. Lying is wrong. Stealing is wrong. And even if 99% of the people around me may engage in these things, I won't, on this basis. This is intelligence based on individuality. The point in this post is that I think too many people have fallen into a mindset of relative morality.
