of goodness and relativity

cg46 100


i don’t think that “good” is relative, though i will admit that we as humans have an incredibly broad perspective with regards to what we as a species consider to be good, with countless factors that inform these perspectives, which gives the appearance of relativity.  I must believe that beyond every individual’s personal perception is an ideal goodness that no one lives up too, and I think people react to that in various ways.  Our world is formed by failure after failure, built by the hands of humans trying their best to reconcile the factors which inform their perspectives of goodness with the realities of finite existence.
Of course, it can be damaging when a person claims to have exclusive access to the objective standard of goodness.
But i think it’s safe to say that cheap coffee ain’t worth killing over.
