Every day I see evidence of materialism, truth relativism, and moral relativism in our society. I agree that it is a problem and is very harmful to our country. I guess my question is how can we fix this problem? or can we fix it at all?

Moral relativism is a problem? It's essential to understanding how human society and interaction functions as a whole. Read some Ruth Benedict and then come back.

Regarding truth relativism, I'm not well-read enough to make an informed statement, but I will say that I have not come across anything in my life so far that I would consider to be a universal truth, which I guess would make me a truth relativist by default.

I read the entire wikipedia entry on Ruth Benedict and from what I got from it she was talking about cultural relativism which is not the same as moral relativism. Cultural relativism would be the moral views of the culture as a whole. Moral relativism would be where moral truths are defined by the individual, rather than a central authority. I think that this is a problem because usually when we decide moral truths for ourselves it is often very self centered. Even if we know something to be wrong, we can still somehow justify it to be okay in our own minds.

For example, I am sure that most of us here can agree that stealing is morally wrong. But someone could justify it in their own mind by saying "well I think that I deserve this thing more than that person does" or "well they don't need it as much as I do" or whatever else they come up with. So somehow they think that makes it okay, but just because they have convinced themselves of that, doesn't change the fact that stealing is wrong.

Good point. I'm not going to let my family starve to death if I can't afford food. Morality is for people who can't figure out what to do unless someone tells them what to do. All we need to do is kill everyone who's too stupid to think for themselves as well as get along with others, and the problem is solved.
