The Only Absolute Today

March 4, 2011

. . . we live in an age of deeply ingrained subjectivism. We have been taught to think that it is somehow wrong, even evil, to say that another’s value system is false. The only absolute judgment widely endorsed by our society is that no absolute judgment is permissible. What suffers in this climate is truth – or, more precisely, the possibility of affirming the existence of any absolute truth.
