A Hierarchy of Argumentative Truth

(very useful) (learning propertarianism)

[S]o, just take the next ten arguments that you run into (not by me, I have enough work to do, demonstrate your cunning elsewhere) try to categorize which level of truth the individual is relying upon to make his or her arguments. Once you do this a few times it will become natural for you.

1) MEANING (Awareness)
….True enough to imagine a conceptual relationship
2) PREFERENCE
….True enough for me to feel good about.
3) ACTIONABILITY
….True enough for me to take actions that produce positive results.
4) MORALITY
….True enough for me to not cause others to react negatively to me.
5) RATIONALITY
….True enough to resolve a conflict without subjective opinion among my fellow people with similar values.
6) DECIDEABILITY
….True enough to resolve a conflict without subjective opinion across different peoples with different values.
7) TRUTH
….True regardless of all opinions or perspectives.
8) TAUTOLOGY
….Tautologically true: in that the two things are equal.

Awareness, Preference, Actionability Morality, Rationality, Decidability, Truth(parsimony), Tautology.
