It's much deeper than just the media. Moral relativism was a good antidote to the religious problems of the 1970s in the west, but to extend it by western standards to morally bankrupt religion-based power structures in unstable parts of the world at a time of impending climate driven agricultural and migration challenges is plain stupid.

It's a global civilization killer.

If you have reacted to Harris' current ideas with hesitance or worse, you might want to make a second sweep. It isn't about the provability of individual ethics, it's about letting mathematics define the principles of human well being around which we regulate ourselves.
