Addendum: I am not arguing for relativism, but complexity. To illustrate the distinction: Chess is an absolutist value system. Winning is absolutely good. Losing is absolutely bad. But within those absolutes, there are 100,000 or so possible moves, any one of which would be good at one point in one game against one opponent, and bad at another point in another game against another opponent. Not relativism. Complexity.
