There’s No Right or Wrong–Except When I Say So

The worst kind of people are the ones who claim “there is no right or wrong”, in theory — while in practice, treat their word as right and expect you to do the same. It goes beyond hypocrisy. It’s intimidation and even dictatorship. Their claim that there is no objective knowledge leads to a condition of both personal and intellectual chaos. If there’s no certainty, then how can there be serenity? Force, intimidation and rabid emotionalism fill the void where certainty should have been. It’s a myth that people who assert objective truth are authoritarians. The real authoritarians are the liars who claim there is no truth — as a “truth,” no less.
