Live and let live?

But would we be satisfied with the value systems of the thief or of the cannibal, it being the case that we could well be the object of their attentions?

This is the painful difficulty generally ignored by ethical relativism and by the postmodern approach of “live and let live”: one may find herself devoid of possessions and one of the ingredients of a stew if certain value systems are given legitimacy.
