Thanks for the replies. Thomas indeed highlighted many of academic definitions and added his insights too...in reply to: What is absolute? What is not absolute? I'd know I spelled out a litany of items in the OP...please consider this just my placing my cards on the table. I'd like to think of how those that propose "THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS ABSOLUTE" and then wonder how they view their mundane existence as being "NOTHING ABSOLUTE". This axiom of "THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS ABSOLUTE" is curious to me in regards to the topic of Anti-social behavior. Self-centered Anti-social behavior ... and especially how the contrary values of the pathos of Hard-work coupled with Entitlement expectations. IE Imo: an American youth resisting police orders .... Why? Imo the youth wrongly conflates their subjective whim and the reality of mandated enforcements. I guess it boils down to: subjective whims vs absolute duties.
