One of the great deceptions/delusions of Progressivism is that they believe that Truth (capital T) is what they want it to be. Unfortunately, most people don't seek Truth-they seek validation, but call it Truth.
I agree with Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the topic of Truth
Truth is seldom pleasant,
It is almost invariably bitter.
And who wants to hear/see the Bitter Truth? Until and unless we agree to "suffer through" Truth, we are going to continue to live in comfortable delusion.
