The Tyranny of Relativism

This week we discuss a concept mentioned all the way at the end of parshat Noach – the famous tower of Babel. First we look at what was actually inherently wrong with its construction. Many great buildings have been erected in the world; what was wrong with this one? Then Simi makes a fascinating comparison to another concept we see in the modern world: relativism, a popular belief that looks very nice on the outside but may have dark ramifications when taken to its extreme.
