I believe in Truth

... And I completely agree with you - and am grateful for your clarification.

This is an article about epistemology (whether and how we know Truth) - not metaphysics (whether there is Truth and what it is)

I am not a relativist. I merely observe that I have never met someone who has access to complete Truth - even a libertarian!

That fact plus experience of people with whom I broadly agree who talk as if they have the Truth or complete certainty that they have it more clearly than anyone else motivated this article.

I studied philosophy (Master's) - but even before that, was comfortable with the proposition that X and NOT X are not simultaneously TRUE!

Again. The observation that no person has access to Truth DOES NOT IMPLY that there is no Truth.

Thanks
