Workable Truth

The world can't be moving towards Post-Truth if we have never had an agreement on what truth is. Kevin Vallier talks of the truce between the Catholic and Protestant worlds. They realised that finding a way to both exist, was preferable to a war aiming for one side to win. War that lead to both sides losing. The problem with Win-Lose politics is that eventually the other side are going to be in power. Any power you have to move towards your truth, is power the other side will have to move away from that truth. A less violent way is to work towards a consensus people can work within. Not one we all agree on. A truth we can work with.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
