Moral relativism is the viewpoint that moral standards are not absolute, but instead emerge from the induvidual, that things exist only in the context of the people who observe them, and that people can simply invent their own morality and do whatever they please.

Moral relativists claim that people can only be only judged by their own set of values, and that every person is "sovereign" and need only answer to themselves.

Those who believe in moral absolutes are critical of moral relativism, and equate it with immorality or amorality.
