    Kurt Mossler (2008) states; “Relativism offer alternatives to traditional theories of ethics.” There is one question that I would have a difficult time accepting accordance to the relativist response. This question would be: Should soldiers, cops, executioners, and doctors be consider as killers even though they do it in order to protect and help society? According to the text the relativist response would be yes, soldiers, cops, executioners, doctors, and executioners are still consider to be murders and that is unlawful. I think the relativist might have a problem giving a justified response because this question can go both ways. There is not wrong or right answer. Sometimes a person does not have a choice to kill and sometimes it just happens without warning. For example, a doctor operates on a patient that have heart problems and during the surgery something happens that unexpected the patient dies.
