Peer Response week 3 TS

Please respond to :I believe morality is universal would best represent my own views. According to Boss (2017), most moral philosophers believe that morality is universal that moral principles are binding on all people regardless of their personal desires, culture, or religion (p. 303). I agree with this statement. Boss (2017) also wrote, According to ethical subjectivists, morality is nothing more than personal opinion or feelings (p. 300). I do not agree with this. Just because something feels good or right, doesnt make it morally acceptable. There was an example of serial killers enjoying torturing and killing their victims. These acts feel good to the killer, and therefore they believe it is morally correct. I believe that would just make you a sick individual.
Even though I agree with universal morality more than relative morality, I suppose there are strengths and weakness to both. First, I will discuss relative morality. A strength for relative morality would be that you are not bogged down with rules that you dont believe in. You make your moral decisions based on what you feel is right or wrong. If it feels right to you, then it is okay to do. A weakness for relative morality is that you could find yourself in big trouble, especially if you believe in cultural relativism. In cultural relativism, you look to society and customs to see what is morally acceptable. However, just because something is morally acceptable in your cultural, doesnt mean that it is morally acceptable in all cultures. If you travel to a new country, you could end up arrested for doing something that would normally be okay.
A strength for universal morality is that there is a clear understanding of what is morally right or wrong because it is the same for everyone. There are laws and rules in place to prevent people from doing morally unacceptable things without consequences. A weakness for universal morality is that the four types of theories can potentially conflict with each other making it difficult to know which theory is correct.
