Carroll argues that: 'It is the business of each culture, at home in its own backyard, to cultivate its singular understandings of mortal life. It is the business of all humans, wherever they dwell, to defend cardinal moral laws and universal human rights. Then, civilisations will be more likely to cohabit than clash.'
