Moral Relativism is a most insidious form of relativism which has nothing to do with physics and everything to do with the weakening of the mind. Moral Standards and proper definitions of reality require measurement and a sense of right and wrong, not some relativistic impression of how one wrong is more or less wrong than another.
Good is good and evil is evil. Western Civilization is losing its ability to discern the difference, and willfully so. Even people who may accept that there is good and evil, do not want to be judgmental about that vis-a-vis anyone else.
How shall we ever know what is True? There may be room to disagree on the magnitude of goods and evils, but cutting off debate in favor of blissful ignorance is no solution. Unpleasant realities are not made better by leaving them to fester, in fact they generally get worse, as the entropy deteriorates when left on its own, and chaos does not organize itself.
Choosing utopian thinking is free will at its best, ignoring reality at will. But it is also fundamentally stupid. And it is fundamentally a statement that the thinker does not care about the world or other people enough to come to conclusions about others that might be considered judgmental. The thinker saves his own reputation by not expressing a potentially politically incorrect view, and more importantly, no one takes action to remedy an evil.
This is willful apathy, and it can only last so long before someone else (the evil side) takes full advantage of the vacuum and exploits the opportunity.
