Today, as I’ve contemplated alternative facts, post-truth, and truth as not truth (and the rather peculiar concept of a perjury trap – virtually impossible with actual truth), along with the vehemence of those that live in a world of absolutes, I just leave you with the following thought from pragmatic philosopher, physician, and father of moderate psychology, William James:

 “I am no lover of disorder and doubt as such. Rather do I fear to lose truth by this pretension to possess it already wholly”

Indeed, yes.
