With Cultural Relativism being nothing more than a moral or ethical system that has its own views of standards of what is categorized as good or evil, right or wrong, actions then become a culture's judgment, upholding each of its individual person's perspective as to what is right or wrong in its own society.

 I believe that actions are culturally relative. With Cultural Relativism being nothing more than a moral or ethical system that has its own views of standards of what is categorized as good or evil, right or wrong, actions then become a culture's judgment, upholding each of its individual person's perspective as to what is right or wrong in its own society.  I recall watching the news where a father (from Egypt) killed both his beautiful daughters because they chose to date out of their culture and race.  It was the thing to do, I suppose, from whence he came. Surely, he felt that the murders were justified in his own mind.

The implications of multiculturalism and the affects that its concepts have on societies as technology advances and more countries become "multi-cultural" are several.  There is the creation of strife amongst groups of people who are different, instead of togetherness.  The liberal policies that make people feel good but do nothing in the form of changing things for the betterment of the people or bringing understanding and tolerance for many cultures, are evident.  One particular thing that bothers me is that I think we should speak one universal language, English, especially if we wish to begin to come together and learn one another's ways of life; English should be learned and spoken for all who wish to live in this great country.  I am all for learning other languages, but the American language is English. I am bothered sometimes when everyone around me is speaking Spanish and I have no idea of what is conversed around me.  I feel as though I am the outsider.  Should that be? Is it ethical or moral for me to think this way?   We all eat, pretty much the same food.  We wear pretty much the same clothing and we watch, pretty much the same crap on TV.  With all of the different cultures surrounding us, it is only fair that we are able to communicate fairly; giving each time to learn the other's languages, would be the ideal thing to do.  Have we then made it possible for almost anything to be justified on the grounds of relativism?  Have we made immigration policies based upon continuing mass immigration, which gives foreign cultures the ability to self-sustain in a separate development?  Are we populating separate communities instead of a unified society? 

Nevertheless, there are many good aspects to multiculturalism. The exposure to many different foods, dress, languages and ways of life are evident amongst us each day.  There is much to learn and grow from others across the globe.  Ruggiero mentions on p.59 the many different ways that the world can borrow ideas, beliefs and values from other cultures.  He goes on to mention the adaption of modern communications technology, communications satellites, personal computer, fax modems, video games, CDs and access to the internet across global waters, affecting home, church and schools.  It is evident that Americans love foreign cars, primarily the way they look, with all of their visual flair and elegance.  One thing is for sure, McDonalds seems to be everywhere.  Just think of how one hamburger can become the light to another's dark tunnel.
