    They were told "the truth". That's not genuine subjectivity, but false

    It should be very obvious that by "subjective aspects of reality" I do
    NOT mean false perceptions of objective aspects.

    Unless you'd rather suppose me to be an absolute raving imbecile, than
    try to think about what I say. Of course, the former is always easier,
    but it has the unfortunate side-effect of making you a hypocrite, given
    your regular espousal of rationality.

    To value subjectivity is place your own perceptions above mere hearsay.
