• Facts are More Important Than Your Feelings

December 27, 2017 1 Comment

There's nothing quite as triggering, terrifying, or disruptive to some people than those dreaded facts.

If bullshit was an illicit high school party, facts would be like your parents coming home early. 

No one ever said the truth was going to be fashionable, pleasant or anything other than a needle arriving at just the wrong moment to burst the bubble of happiness you may have been blissfully floating upon for years. 

Nevertheless, we all must concede when undeniable facts emerge. 

Whether you're steeped in Liberal orthodoxy or clinging to an antiquated conservative dogma, it's time for an age of reason; a renaissance of non-partisan objectivity.

But wait a minute...

Maybe there is no such thing as a fact? Perhaps we're all swirling around an endless echo of infinite parallel universes and existence itself is just a projection of a sporadically interpreted reality via some intangible, unexplained consciousness?

Or maybe reality is real and it's time to face the music?

I'll never claim to know all the facts, it's likely no one will ever possess an omniscient, completed catalog of knowledge. However, what we can do is not give up, not succumb to party favoritism and willfully ignore facts because they deviate from our agenda, our political identity or our perception of the world around us, no matter how upsetting it may be.

Facts are more important than your feelings.
