Cultural Relativism

Robert Frost once famously said that writing free verse poetry was like playing tennis without a net.  Discussing culture with a cultural relativist is like playing tennis with some guy who says that your ace is just a cultural construct.  It’s the most elusive thing we have to deal with in our society … it’s all but impossible, simply because it’s a denial of reality.
