Who will protect the weak?

Or influencing government through lobbying verses bribery?

Who will protect the children?

Or educating verses exploiting our children?

This is the problem. Since everyone can set their own moral standard, everyone can challenge the authority that is setting the standard.

Is open minded relativism possible?
