How would you balance cultural relativism and universal human rights? Do you think that you could remain neutral in your judgment of all of the behaviors you might see in a small-scale society?

Please answer the questions, there are 4 questions, each question is one page.
A good essay answer should be no less than 1 double spaced page of substantial information. The quality of your essay will be predicated on proper use of grammar and punctuation, and proper use of anthropological terms acquired in the book. What I am looking for is your ability to craft a 1 page essay that demonstrates that you have read and understood the material and are able to use said knowledge to think logically and critically about the questions. To achieve this, you will need to write and revise your drafts. The best way to do it is to write the first draft as soon as possible and revise it at least once a day until submission time.
Since the essays are short, please do not waste space on preambles and get to the crux of the matter right away. Also, for the same reason, please refrain from quoting from the textbook (this includes quotes with proper citations).
Although you may use external sources (with citations) while authoring your essays, you may not take information verbatim from the book or any other source, including your classmates. Again, the essays are short so absolutely no quotations. Please note that your essay will go through Turnitin, and plagiarism will be sanctioned.
Questions:
1. How would you balance cultural relativism and universal human rights? Do you think that you could remain neutral in your judgment of all of the behaviors you might see in a small-scale society?
2. Historically, symbols can be very powerful and can evoke great emotions. This is especially true of religious symbols. List some religious and political symbols, and describe what roles they have played in human history.
3. When one enters a hospital as a patient, one’s clothes and personal property are taken away and one is treated in a fashion that is very different from how one is treated outside the hospital. Do you think that a hospital stay can be considered a rite of passage? Why or why not? If so, can the three phases be identified?
4. How is neoshamanism different from classic shamanism? Do you think the term shaman is appropriate to use in western societies?
