My feelings, experience are truth


scenario Scenarios

  • I don't care for your ‘facts’, my ‘lived experience’ is my truth

oneliner One-liners

  • Does that apply to your pay cheque?

body In-brief

  • It’s about feelings over facts, or at least my feelings if I think someone has oppressed me. This oppression can just be someone not having the same views as me and my in-group.

    We all have feelings but we have to be mature enough to recognise that these need to be informed by evidence.

    These feeling-objections are often very convenient, one-sided, eg if their boss didn’t ‘feel’ they’d put in enough effort for their hours and so was not going to pay them as much – that feeling/truth would not be accepted!

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. Winston Churchill
