It is the correlation between people having the ability to make ethical decisions based on their background. In a way it is like being stereotypical. E.G. all Asians love video games, not only is that not true but it is an ethical decision that I have said that is made by a certain group of people because they are Asian. It is more like people's reasoning for believing in something because of how they were brought up.
Yes, I do agree with Etarip. The way we are being brought up nowadays are different from the past. I beginning to think that along the way, things are not the same as in the past that has value in upbringing.

Moral relativism is the belief that moral judgement can vary between individuals, depending upon their respective cultural backgrounds.
Moral relativism is the philosophical position that morality is relative and that people should try to be good, but only by following their own consciences. or Moral relativism is more easily understood in comparison to moral absolutism. Absolutism claims that morality relies on universal principles (natural law, conscience).
Talking about honesty daily,being thief in the night
Smiling at everybody,thinking how stupid people are
Being president and married but "Did not have sex wit another woman"
Giving insane bonuses to directors and file for bankruptcy....

Moral relativism is more easily understood in comparison to moral absolutism. Absolutism claims that morality relies on universal principles (natural law, conscience). Christian absolutists believe that God is the ultimate source of our common morality, and that it is, therefore, as unchanging as He is. Moral relativism asserts that morality is not based on any absolute standard. Rather, ethical truths depend on variables such as the situation, culture, one's feelings, etc.
