Blaska caught in yet another lie
In Blaska's eyes, who are YOU to determine the legitimacy of his claims? Truth is subjective, right?
Blaska's goes so far as to express his FEAR of those who would decide the legitimacy of his claims....Blaska wrote:That is why I fear those who would decide, unilaterally or, in the case of the one-party state, the regime, what is "truth" and what is "lies, corruption and propaganda."
It's quite the convenient way to not have to defend your statements.Blaska wrote:Now, how about tackling the issue I posed? That being, who decides what is true or not? Blaska says trust the people to decide!
Because, to him, what is important is not the accuracy of one's statements, but the ability to convince the listener that the statement is fact.
Add to that the potential of essentially unlimited spending by special interests.
Now, in this scenario, there is no objective truth. Rather, the legitimacy of statements are to be subjectively determined by the listener. That determination may be influenced by the nearly unlimited marketing potential of a well-funded individual, group, corporation, etc. It's not a difficult stretch to the conclusion that the deepest pockets determine, or at least overwhelmingly contribute to the determination of, the truth.
