WESTERN POLYTHEISM AND THE LANGUAGES OF THE CLASSES

While truths must exist universally but are invariant (the meaning of a truth), there are also some universal goods (like truth), but many variable and often competing goods (wants and needs).

And as such we require narratives to explain both the universal truth, the universal good, and the particular goods that are used by each class.

That said, the strong rule and decide, the burghers organize, produce, distribute, and exchange, and the poor and weak gossip and complain.

And each tells the story of his class by attributing virtue to his utterances.

We learn to speak the law of the strong, the philosophy of the utilitarian, and the religion of the weak.

These are not complicated concepts to master.
