But that would be wrong

Some men say there is no universal objective standard of right and wrong; that values are constructed by society, varying dramatically with time and place; that only a barbarian thinks “the customs of his tribe and island are laws of nature.”

If I could just sit down for coffee with a man who doesn’t believe in objective morality, and then punch him in the face whenever he tries to articulate his position, I think we could really make some progress toward mutual understanding.
