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.
