On linkedin, about cultural relativism in the United Nations human rights council..
True human rights are not relative to culture. They are realized by objective analysis in a similar way that the laws of science and mathematics were realized. These were discovered by first identifying known principles that apply to the issue and using discursive reasoning to discover more truths. The truths so discovered are absolute and universal. That is also true of human rights properly discovered. Countries and cultures that follow the belief that human rights are relative to their culture are misguided and in need of enlightenment.
