Moral Relativist Seeks Less Certainty About Moral Relativism

This was like watching someone try to wrestle a greased pig. It conjures an imagined conversation:
Moral Relativist: "There's no such thing as truth."

Queasy Moral Relativist: "That's true, but what if people can't handle this non-truth truth?"

Moral Relativist: "That's your reality."
The tone of condescension in the article towards those who "long for clarity" is sort of humorous to me since I spent a lot of my life longing for unclarity since clarity would require behavior changes. They ought to try it for awhile, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout.
