"Moral relativism finally taken to its logical conclusion"

Blogging at PJM, Zombie considers an astonishing article from the Guardian:
The Guardian recently published a wicked satire of moral relativism, a Swiftian send-up entitled “End human rights imperialism now” with the classic sub-heading “Groups such as Human Rights Watch have lost their way by imposing western, ‘universal’ standards on developing countries.” Brilliant! Hahahahaha! I didn’t know the Guardian had branched out into humor.

But about five minutes after my laughter subsided, a horrible suspicion dawned on me: Could it be that the author was serious?

A quick re-read confirmed my fears. This was no joke. This was the modern left finally taking its last inevitable step into the abyss of moral oblivion.
Read it and weep.

Great article. It's very disturbing that people can so easily reject the idea that human life has intrinsic value. Disgusting actually.
