Just so you know …

… A Relativist Cannot Rationally Object to the Imposition of One's Values on Others - Maverick Philosopher: Strictly Philosophical. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Either values are relative or they are not.  If they are relative, then no one can be faulted for living in accordance with his values even if among his values is the value of  imposing one's values on others.  If, on the other hand, values are not relative, then one will be in a position to condemn some forms of value-imposition.  The second alternative, however, is not available to one who affirms the relativity of all values.
