            The world is becoming more
culturally diverse. The internet has given us a birds eye view of other
cultural beliefs and practices. Ethnocentrism is the belief that ones’ way of
doing things is superior to another’s. When one believes that his/her culture
is better than another, this leads to conflicts.  Morality differs from society to society all
over the world. People have different ways of life and different views.

            At a young age we are taught the
difference between what is right and wrong based on our cultural views. Although
we are taught this, there may be things that we view as wrong even in our own
culture, that is considered subjectivism. If there is something in my culture
that I think is wrong, that is my own choice and subjectivism is about the
individual only. On the other hand, in the example from the book, the group
that agrees cheating is acceptable are in a conventionalist system. When a
group agrees that it is morally acceptable, that is conventionalism.

            Moral ethical relativism,
conventionalism and subjectivism are all different theories, none of which have
at least one moral principle. Objectivism is one theory that does have at least
one principle. As William Ross said in this excerpt, moral principles are rules
that should be followed, however in a case of moral conflict they can be
overridden. I think that is what is right, there should be at least one principle
in which it should be followed, conflicts can come up and depending on what it
is, that principle can be overridden to resolve the conflict.

            In this day and age, no matter what
the principle is, they will always be changing, now and for years to come. People
need to do what they feel is morally right, we cant control the actions that
others make.
