No. Cultural relativism is fucking idiotic. Western culture shits on middle eastern culture in almost every way. Sure there are some aspects of cultural comparisons that are totally arbitrary. For example sitting in a chair to eat vs kneeling on the floor. Theres no real indicator of what is better so i guess japanese culture and western culture are "equal" in that way. But if there are enough discrepancies where one culture is clearly superior then yes absolutely calls it like you sees it.

It seems that most people do understand that culture can have a truly detrimental impact on people. But as soon as culture is indicated as part of the problem, the person who cites culture is often shut down as bigoted. And this argument is also generally accepted.

Hey look, I'm not trying to put down any culture, and in principle I agree they all have something of merit. But things aren't equal just because we say we want them to be. The Chinese have an amazing, unique, and ancient culture, which has contributed many things to the world. With all due respect to third world African nations like the Congo they have neither had the world impact nor are their common practices like forced adult female circumcision, rapes, etc, something to hold as "of value".

Oh please. Some cultures just suck. Admit it like a man. Genital mutilation and cutting babies with swords is not "equal". The left has brainwashed you into Orwellian Think. The PC culture has taught you to apologize for telling the truth and/or being right.

Different cultures produce a variety of valuable things from food to music and art. But some cultures are destructive. Street and motorcycle gangs have a culture of crime and violence. ISIS has a culture as worthy of eradication as was the Nazi culture.

People need to be reminded of this sometimes. Especially when discussing negative sub-cultures that the larger culture should wish to change.

And some of them mutilate children, practice blood rituals, and cover women with blankets, but at least they give them eye holes...

You just disputed my position putting your position on the side of all cultures being equal. Did you mean to agree with me?

Some are bigger cultures, some are smaller. Some are stronger, some are weaker. They do not hold the same value, but they should all be respected despite differences.

What do you respect most about the culture of the Nazis? Perhaps it is ther work ethic. Do you think that they have a culture that, on the whole, warrants your respect?

The Nazis were ruthless and dehumanizing and have achieved so much, but most people, like you, fail to see that.

So Nazi Germany should get our respect despite misogyny beyond the pale, slaughtering gays, and burning millions of Jews alive? WTF?

Misogyny?

In what way?

Give an example.

Are you sure you know what the word means?

They were trying to breed a master race. The process was already begun. They selected several hundred of women who they thought represented the Aryan ideal. These women were treated like royalty. They had huge dachaus in the Bavarian countryside . Hitler lived women. Eva Braun was worshipped.

So how can a regime that entrusts it's future to women be misogynistic?

Some cultures... Specifically the Caucasian ones, are simply more advanced and have better technology, better science, including medical knowledge, and just are more capable of governing. I have always agreed with the view on this subject of that of one of my favorite writers, Rudyard Kipling.

He was defending the Brits colonization and rule of India back in the 19th century. And he said, rightly, I believe, that some lesser cultures just need to be looked after.

He called this the White Man's Burden.

Look what happened in Africa after apartheid was eradicated. All those tribal warlords went on genocidal and ethnicidal killing sprees. The hutus and the tsutsis. Darfur, Rwanda, Ethiopia. The Sudan.

More rational cultures have more value.

As to things that don't lie on this scale, they're arbitrary for the cultures.

I think there are some cultures that resonate more with some people, especially if it matches their views. I don't agree with the views some cultures have on women but that's not to say that somewhere in there they don't have interesting ideas and beliefs in a different subject. Each can have a good point and a bad point. They aren't equal but that's not exactly a bad thing.
