Tolerance

Hobbes: How are you doing on your New Year’s resolutions?

Calvin: I didn’t make any. See, in order to improve oneself, one must have some idea of what’s “good” that implies certain values. But as we all know, values are relative. Every system of belief is equally valid and we need to tolerate diversity. Virtue isn’t “better” than vice. It’s just different.

Hobbes: I don’t know if I can tolerate that much tolerance.

Calvin: I refuse to be victimized by notions of virtuous behavior.
