In light of the nature and psychology of politics today I often wonder...
Is truth and reality the same thing?
As far as I can tell the only thing one can sight as truth in politics are physical in nature...
Arrival times, location, signatures, words spoken, appearance, movements, quantities and durations...
However I find it is virtually impossible to "prove the reality/actuality" of anything else in the political realm?
If you have ever engaged with a person of the opposite political persuasion you come to realize that there is no way to officially win an argument!
For example I can sight an article, a corresponding video and a transcript of an event
during a heated political discussion. Yet even with three forms of "proof" my opponent in the discussion can quickly dispel all three sources of
info in a variety of ways.
In fact I believe all a person has to do to sustain an eternal debate is state the complete opposite concept, deflect and redirect the focus and logic
of the argument.
Another example is
the ever popular word SHEEPLE...
So answer me this... how can two people with exactly converse ideas both be SHEEPLE?
Well I have been called a sheeple by a sheeple many times here...
Obviously this entire concept is apparent but I find this is the only social realm where
a lie can be a truth and a truth can be a lie.
Further more just about anything that falls into the political domain officially disappears from the realm of reality and provability. Even science
which is unemotional and "factual" loses all of its validity if it become politicized.
Think global warming ...
Nobody here can 100% "prove" the existence or non existence of global warming.Even with a PHD I think it is impossible any more. I would literally
bet my house that any average joe here could endlessly go toe to toe with a world class scientist on this subject...
There is no decisive victory, reality, truth or actuality to be found.
I could blame your side for this, but then how could I go about proving it???
