There is only one possible meaning of truth: the spectrum honesty(unwarranted) > testimony(warranted) > most parsimonious operational name(unwarrantable). Conflating the preferable, the good, the decidable, the true, is just a means of lying – it is merely a sophisticated method by which to employ an appeal to authority by platonic means. It’s an excuse for self congratulatory fraud.

People will make excuses.
They favor their excuses.
They disfavor the excuses of others.
That’s why we have courts, science, and measurement – to decide independent of excuses.
We need only incrementally improve the courts so that we suppress excuses just as we have every other form of violence, theft, and fraud.

NO MORE LIES, NO MORE FRAUD, NO MORE PRETENSE.
