is as sinister as moral relativism and it actually exists to a much greater extent, imo. It is the idea that all ideas are of equal merit and deserve respect. It is always the position of the person with the weaker argument. Ironically it is often those who accuse others with limited justification of moral relativism who retreat to the bastion of intellectual relativism when their ideas are criticized and ad hominem defenses fail. Support for intellectual relativism is a de facto rejection of the free speech that matters most. To those who support IR I say, 'If you can't stand the heat, go play in the sandbox.'
