Lies maintain the insane. - Denise G.

This quote was added by dgillette83
There is only one truth. There is only one course of events that created world history. There is no such thing as any one person having "their truth" and it being any more factual than an opinion. One cannot selectively accept history to fabricate a relevant timeline of events. Facts are facts. But the reality of history not being favorable to one's very existence shakes the ground that they stand on. So lies maintain the sanity of the desperate.

I agree with this quote in that there is only one truth. However, I do not agree that humans ever have known or will know that truth. As kumagai said, every human interprets things in their own way so you asserting that any single human perception of truth is more truthful than another better have some good evidence to back it up. Widely accepted perceptions of reality often change to make room for more accurate ones and clinging on to the old ways simply for tradition is counterproductive. A few good examples are Newtonian vs quantum and relativistic physics, feudalism vs capitalism vs communism, and (the subject I believe this quote is referring to) US/Western history, which has been incredibly propagandized to paint its authors in a much more favorable light than "objective" truth would.

Truth is relative though because each person interprets the same set of events in different ways. And the way they interpret things literally creates their experience of reality. I suppose some people are actually insane and may literally delete real events. Like "no I don't believe Hitler existed". Perhaps that's what this quote is referring to, people who are actually clinically insane.

I need to clarify that I meant "better company on the right" ONLY in regard to this topic.

This quote is alluding to the fact that many people these days claim that things are a certain way because it's "their truth" and hold onto that rather than accepting THE truth. They will distort historical facts to appeal to their own beliefs or to be politically correct. They are snowflakes denying reality to live in comfort rather than improving themselves. They will even deny facts if it doesn't support their reality (their "truth"). They are living in an imaginary lala land in their minds. Unfortunately, I have seen that this is very common among the left, which I belong to and it frustrates me. This is because if I could simply change my political notions then I would at least have some better company on the right (Not all of them, obviously).

Who and what is this talking about? Without that it's spurious nonsense.
