The Tyranny Of Objective Truth

January 20, 2014

The fixation with objective truth is a form of self-imposed tyranny. The concept
of objective truth is an oxymoron, since truth is based on perception (including
apprehension), which is subjective.

Beliefs can be assigned a truth-value, but they can also be distinguished
according to effects. Pessimists are more accurate, but at what cost?
Optimists are more effective (and happier).

If it’s true that “you can be right, or you can be happy”, which do you prefer?
