There is no truth, only interpretations. Prevailing interpretations are a function of power, not truth. It is the naive idea of absolutes that has led American into an increasingly authoritarian, conservative position. Rather than embracing postmodernism and progressive thinking, liberals leaned into neoliberalism and dragged themselves into just as fanatical a position on centralization and authority as any conservative. Your suggestion that people aren’t being fearful and obedient enough sounds like a 90s neocon war cry. Congrats on the irony.
