What do you believe in?

– How could I agree that the form of rule is irrelevant and only liberties as practical impersonation of freedom justify the need of government? Well, I esteem this is not a legit claim at all! I walk and talk and socialize, and when I do, I listen. That is great part of our vocation as thinkers. I need a critically assessed feedback from reality at all times. And what I see in this Faculty of Thought, and not only here but at all venues of critical inquiry, is the belief in one intricately concocted truth, formulated and reserved for the learned mind, elevated to the state of a self-fulfilling prophesy.
