Gilbert Meilaender: Relativism or “diversity” as self-protection

His answer when asked, “How has this generation’s view of morality changed from generations past?”

I think we are in the process of raising a generation of people who are relativists. Not theoretical relativists, but practical relativists. That’s what “diversity” has come to mean. It means, “You have your way of thinking and I have mine. And as long as you don’t tell me to change my mind, I won’t tell you to change yours.” It’s a sort of self-protective devise.
