Next, I’m being interviewed by a Russian journalist who is fascinated by these riots. I explain that I believe our culture of moral relativism is to blame, that no one believes in right and wrong anymore, that everything is subjective, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, that we don’t believe in an objective morality. She frowns.
“So you believe in God, then?”
I shake my head. “No. But I do believe in an objective morality.”
She nods. “Ah. So you believe in the state then?”
Because, obviously, the only way that you can derive an objective morality is to rely on the church or the state: there are absolutely no other philosophies out there, are there?
For fuck's sake.
