All human problems are a product of self deception and unequal opportunities for people to have time and money. Self deception is a product of people having a higher value of things than they have of the truth. When they are confronted by information that challenges their beliefs a negative feeling is imposed for two reasons. 1st, because for most people it reduces their value of themselves for having thought something was true that was not. 2nd, because the things that cause us to feel good in life rely on the consistency of our perspective. Learning something we believe to be true is false or something false is true has consequences for a variety of objects. The truth has the potential to take peoples joy away.
Self deception has consequences for the individual as well as the collective. The human constant is that all people at all times want to do what they want to do. What people is based on what causes them to feel good and much of what causes people to feel good relies on certain ideas they have being true. Self deception harms individual motivation, as believing things that are false cause people to like things they wouldn’t like and thus do things they would not do. Secondly, there is consequence to the individual in know how, as believing things that are false are true or vice versa will cause an individual to be less capable of understanding the world around them which may make it more difficult for them to do the things they want to do. Finally, when a person rejects information that challenges their beliefs this means such a person is incapable of learning things they prefer to not be true. Self deception limits intelligence, not only through the rejection of challenging information, but in the focus of attention where people consume and pursue information that reinforces their beliefs and avoid information that challenges their beliefs.
Self deception is harmful to the collective. Harmful because it obstructs communication where people of opposing views cannot communicate effectively because neither group can acknowledge the objective facts of any issue because these facts challenge their beliefs and have consequences to their values.
For a person whose highest value is the truth does not experience these negative feelings when confronted with challenging
The Libertee strives to achieve a value system anchored in truth and liberty. The truth is required to have liberty. Which isn’t to say there are no just uses of deception, as the use of deception may be justified if the deception doesn’t impose on the one being deceived and significant imposition would result if one were to tell the truth. When talking about truth over everything and liberty is true I always include this disclaimer because an extreme interpretation could result in harm or imposition which is the opposite of my intent.
