In the face of cultural diversity, tolerance, acceptance, and respect are of high regards.
The principle of cultural relativism tells us to embrace our differences and be considerate of other's culture. Considering the geographical setting of the world and even in our country, it is really indispensable for us to have variations in traditions, beliefs, languages, arts, and ways of life.
Well, there should really be no disputes on this reality if only there is tolerance, acceptance, and respect of other's culture. Now, what is the significance of cultural relativism? And, why do we really have to observe such?
First off, it tells us how beautiful human race is. Regardless of where on earth or what society, group, place, or time a person comes from, cultural relativism shows off the beauty of diversity. We are beautiful for we are diverse. We are beautiful because we we have different ways of living. Second, it is all about giving others what you would want to receive. For this matter, we all want respect. Thus, it is just to respect tje culture of others so that in same manner, they would respect yours too. It is respecting their struggles, their history, their personal way of living as long as they conform to universal language of human rights. And, third, we should respect the culture of others because diversity in cultures should be celebrated. It is also a good platform to learn good parts of every culture wherein we are taught with cultural values and allow us to evolve into a better human.
In today's world, if we are able to respect and widen our horizon on the cultures of other people, there would be peace and love for these two things spring from tolerance, acceptance, and respect.
