Plato’s Truth Beauty & Goodness.

 Long ago, our civilization accepted Plato’s ideals. we fight over our truths. We think that the opposite of the truth we hold is false. 

And so we fight. We need to learn that sometimes the opposite of one truth might be another truth (Joe Campbell). Einstein in a delightful little essay says the 3 ideals should rather be Truth Beauty and Kindness. without kindness to each other about our ideals of truth, we’ll go to war.
