The buzz word of the day seems to be that there is no such thing as truth. That all that counts is what one believes or feels. If that is the case, and truth is just a matter of feelings, then that must mean that there is no such thing as a lie. Which means that I can say whatever I want,
no matter how outrageous or impossible it may be and because feelings, no matter how misguided trump facts no matter how correct they may be, that means that you have no way to argue with me and prove my version of truth as incorrect
and therefore you are subject to my every desire and my every whim no matter how outrageous it may be. Because the moment you believe that truth is like a pool of water, bending and flowing to fit its environment, then you will become captive to my every mood and whim.
And because facts no longer matter nothing you say can or will sway me. As after all, my personal beliefs and feelings count more than facts. Therefore your life will become mine to rule, and there is nothing that you will be able to say to change my mind as my truth is all that counts. And if you think that sounds like fun, consider this, you never know what my next mood or soul demanding request will be.
Consider the fearful of results of a world where truth does not exist, and the next time someone declares that truth does not matter you just might think twice about declaring such a person wise.
Got something to say? Go for it!
