feel free to answer both if you can, or just the second one if you don't know the answer to the first...
a) can you ever say that things people from other cultures believe or don't believe are wrong per se, or can you just have AN OPINION, even with the very worst kind of stuff?
an example - i was talking to someone recently about the World Cup being in Qatar and couldn't decide whether humanitarian/political issues like their attitudes towards gays, women, or other stuff should count against them being offered the chance to host things like that, and i really couldn't come up with an answer. my gut feeling was to say yes, they should, but i couldn't really come up with a logical reason why beyond i think/know such attitudes are wrong.
who makes us moral judges, though? are we superior because we're from places that are, idk, more civilised (again, surely that's just an opinion?). would it be ridiculous for people from different cultures to point to stuff like our forces unecessarily killing women and kids overseas, our empiric past, idk, the general failings of western society, as proof that we're just as wrong/bad? is there a sliding scale of civility; are some people more important than others?
b) when was the last time you saw/ate a strawberry-flavoured custard cream type biscuit?
