No, in a good way. You can probably gather something of his basic thrust here:


It doesn't get to the point as directly as the first couple pages of this (which, unfortunately, can't be previewed online):


And yes, he has quite a bit to say about amoral pretensions/cultural relativism. The older I get, the funnier I find that sort of thing. Different people may have varying moralities, but a person denying any morality, or that morality shapes her/his politics, strikes me as about as believable as a person denying any language, or that language shapes her/his perspective on life. Maybe it's true of that feral child shag posted about a little while ago, but that's about it.
