Is cultural relativism or civilization’s universality more helpful for people?

One of the differences between culture and civilization is that the former tends to be particular and local; whereas the latter is usually universalistic and leans towards expansion. Which do you think is more beneficial for people, cultural relativism, or civilization's universality?

    Neither is beneficial.  Both are manifestations of the life of humans.  Rather than contemplate culture vs civilization, why not address something useful like why some cultures are more successful than other cultures.  The answer may be the solution to the problems of those cultures that have more problems.
