Step one. Get people who live radically different lives to agree on what "better" is.

Step two. get them to agree on how to make it better.

There is an objective and empirical truth as to what better is, based off science and the universe's design

what's better for one is not necessarily better for another.

if you need further proof, give a bunch of strangers the stereo aux cord in your car. obvious the correct answer is Pantera, but others disagree.

Music is disagreeable because it is a human creation. It's a subjective thing, and cultural. A bunch of punk rockers may not like the newest pop hit, and obviously that's fine, and honestly dank in my opinion.

The fundamental laws of reality are objective. Think waste: is there any situation where waste is a good thing? Or water: is there any living thing that doesn't need water? We have objective goals as an animal we need to pursue + maximize, and that is beyond culture or country.
