Probably the worst of all is our social media platform. How many hateful things are said in the name of truth on a daily basis? Social Media is great 👍 for some things. But it has the unfortunate downside of giving everyone greater reach for their ideology (myself, sadly 😞 included). There are real people on the other side of that computer 💻, be careful what you say 🗣 and how you say it. Shouldn't we practice kindness?
I hear 👂 ya. Chris, what about truth, huh? Telling it like it is!
Correct. The passage tells us to bind the truth around our necks and etch them onto the tablet 📱 of our hearts 💕. Truth and the pursuit of wisdom (context of Proverbs 3) are critical.
Veracity, facts, data, evidence... all these things come into play. All these things are needed. Truth cannot be relative. Abstraction is anathema to science 🔬.
It is sad 😭 that Peter Kreeft's thoughts 💭 on trans-modernism do not seem to be taking hold. Trans-Modernism, BTW is the questioning of tradition as a means of reintegration into the fabric of society. Brief ⌚️ history:
- Modernism - Question everything
- Post-Modernism - Reject everything
- Trans-Modernism - Interrogate everything and pick the best parts to un-reject
We need to move away from a post-modern, post-truth mindset. We need some objectivity. We need to hold our leaders, cops 🚓 , teachers 🤓, and businesses 🏦 accountable. We especially need to hold ourselves accountable to the truth.
As a librarian 👓, this topic is near and dear to my heart ❤️. It's what I went to school 🏛 for. All my colleagues are going bananas 🍌 over this election and the results are worse than simply a President 👖 🔥. What this election shows about our society is far worse. We need to hold ourselves accountable to the truth.
