#2. I think it's hard to separate the descriptive aspect and the compared perspective aspect. There is such a fine line between the two of them and many times overlapping. I know that I have a very hard time separating them, but to some experts it might be easy. To say that one culture is better than another is wrong. I know for myself there are cultures that I wouldn't want to live in, but that doesn't make them any better or worse than the one I live in. I couldn't live in the culture of the Northwest Coast, because I enjoy helping others. My parents always thought me to treat others the way you would have them treat you.

#3. I agree with Benedict's claim that morality is simply whatever a culture deems normal behavior. If a culture of people believe in a certain belief such as killing people, then when they kill those people they think they are doing the right thing. I don't agree with killing people but that's only because I was told that killing was not acceptable by the society that I live in. I don't think that I can apply this to slavery or the Nazi policy because my morals or normal standards disagree with those happenings. However, there are people that can apply this to that because they might agree with those occurrences. They don't think that anything was wrongful committed because they feel they are superior to those people affected. I disagree with them because I was raised differently and I understand that in this society you should treat everyone with respect.
