Notice that both forms of relativism make it pretty much impossible to engage in any serious critical thinking. According to subjectivism, there is no point in trying to develop thoughtful, well-substantiated beliefs, because no matter what beliefs you hold, those beliefs will be true for you. Likewise, if cultural relativism were true, there would be no point in trying to base your beliefs on evidence and good reasoning--in fact, it would be wrong to do so, because that might lead you to question society's prevailing beliefs. And according to cultural relativism, it is always wrong for a person to question his or her society's beliefs, because those beliefs are always TRUE!
