Objective vs. Subjective

Reader comment on item: Speaker Shouted Down at U.C.-Irvine

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Feb 8, 2007 at 00:08

If anyone wanted to avoid confrontation, at least in the very short term, then they would say, "I have my truth, they have theirs, and this is all good". However, when differences are brought to bear - well, collision comes to mind. So, will it take the withering away of those entities which cast their lot with subjectivism for us to have in the ascendancy those entities which pay more than lipservice to what is objective? My answer is - unfortunately, yes.
