I say don't worry so much about being too right, just use whatever ideas and thoughts you can use to respond


I think the world as a whole in this point in time it's still very conservative and traditional. Don't be fooled by change, religion is still very dominant for instance. Many traditional social institutions aren't going away soon either.

Yup, many parts of the world still adhere to tradition. I would say it's also important to distinguish between conservatism as a social trait and conservative/right as a political viewpoint even if the two overlap in a number of areas.

Exactly, it would completely take like 100 years for many traditional thinking principles to completely eradicate from the modern world.

Do you consider your values and ethics superior to those traditional thinking principles?

To do that, he'd need to emancipate humanity from both biology and axiology. The question is academic at best.

It depends on what the benchmark is. For example, in Saudi Arabia, allowing women to drive is a liberal idea. Therefore, since women are allowed to drive mostly everywhere, then the world is a liberal place. Then, there are countries like the Philippines where abortion and divorce are both illegal, but a transsexual can be elected for public office and women have been elected presidents several times now.

Yes, in general. Although there are so many values and ethics, that they wouldn't all be contrary to mine.

How would you know this though. Do you have some binding and objective standard by which to compare values and ethics so that you might conclude, for example, that certain traditional family values are superior or inferior to your own?
