Everything we ever say is from our perspective. Good and evil are simplistic minds trying to paint the world with a black and white brush. Weak.

Moral relativism is a nihilistic tool people use to hide from their own character flaws and insufficiencies.

Sorry if i don't trust the motivations of people who say the equivalent of "might makes right" or something like "moral thinking is for the weak."

There's somethings that are just universally immoral, regardless of one perception.
