Conclusion: example in Latvia it is prohibited to buy an alcohol from 10pm till 8am but in England you can buy alcohol any time. Before we have the same praxis as in England but we look how it is in France and decide that we do the same and maybe this is better because people are restricted and maybe it deters people from drinking and also it is good because you cannot buy alcohol any way because all shops are closed, if you want you can do this before. Why some people have to work at the night time instead of sleeping just for selling alcohol. Yes this is very profitable business but maybe it deters people from drinking. Every country has different rules because every country has different agenda. And law which is in force in Latvia cannot be in force in Greece because in Latvia we have snow around 6 months in a year but in Greece snow is just in mountains. So in winter time there is obligation to change tires but in Greece and also in Islamic countries it never happens. These comparisons is not really concern to cultural relativism but it shows that countries are very different and even the climate can affect the religion and culture and politic and religious views of people. But I agree that we have to learn only the positive things from different countries because it is like the experienced and smarter teaches youngest. There are some small things which for example Latvia has to change in their country and government has to understand that some countries are better in something. But lot of countries are not as smart because as I already mentioned Latvia penetrate in country radars but don’t know how to really work with them so it fails and they lost money and have to return to old system. And it happens with a countries or people which don’t know how to apply and work with something new which comes from different cultures it means they don’t need it like no one needs cultural relativism because everyone already has “everything” what they need. And as we see politics, religion, ethical, aesthetic in every country is very different so cultural relativism doesn’t exist. …
In essay I am going to describe what cultural relativism is and who supports this theory about cultural relativism and who totally criticizes this theory and my opinion. Anthropologists describe that cultural relativism is the view that all beliefs, customs, and ethics are relative to the individual within his own social context. I disagree because I think every country is totally different, nations has their own beliefs. For example in my country Latvia people cannot accept Islamic culture because we are democratic country. Of course it will be very good if Islamic countries accept European model but then it means that this is no more Islamic countries because they lost the identity of the country. I accept that conditions for women in Islamic countries are very bad and they have to change it but this is not Europeans or Americans problem we don’t have to “put our nose” in things which doesn’t related to us. I think if someone wants to totally change the world and apply cultural relativism and make countries very similar then people didn’t accept it and try to make demonstrations because everyone wants to live and grow up in country what he likes. People are different in every country, for example our society never want to change wives like Eskimo. My thesis is that it is not possible to apply cultural relativism because it is not possible to change culture but we have to learn from other cultures in order to make our country better. And nowadays in the world doesn’t exists cultural relativism.
