The Nature of Truth--and How to Manipulate It

Post by daniel » Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:28 pm

I wrote a short blog post on the main site discussing the nature of "truth," how we structure it and how it is being manipulated to control our values.

Agreed.

I liked this summary. And I agree and see it too that society (I blame socialism) try to break up the family values like you said and even personal through gender fluidity and all that crap. Some post-modern people even believe (haha) that there is no truth. That all truth is subjective and there is no such thing as ethics and morals. I read (or rather listened) to this book called "Universally preferable behaviour (UPB), a rational proof of secular ethics" where he has made a philosophical attempt at proving what is right and wrong through logic or philosophy. I highly recommend it if you are interested in that kind of thing. It's free. As far as I know, no one has managed to find a flaw, yet. Too bad it's not mainstream...

"Give simplicity a chance". Very nice. Truth should be pure, simple and beautiful right?
Truth is pure beautiful simplicity

Reading it now... thanks for the reference.
“Truth” has been exposed as manipulation; “virtue” as control; “loyalty” as slavery, and what is called “morality” has been revealed as a ridiculous puppet show designed to trick weak and fearful people into enslaving themselves.
Isn't that the truth!
