You can see for yourself, and feel free to let me know what you think.
I’ll explain more later about where I’m going with this. But for now, chew on this: truth vs. honesty. It’s a big idea, in my view, and it gets no attention anywhere that I can tell (other than by implication). Moreover, I believe that we often resort to and emphasize truth in order that we may ultimately evade reality or rationalize bad things. Our entire politics and culture revolves around the truth, and it does so in order to mask the underlying dishonesty. A thought: a truth is a static fact of reality wholly dependent upon a specific, defined, limited context; whereas, honesty is a dynamic process which demands all reasonable efforts to identify and gather all relevant facts, integrating them into the widest possible — indeed, expanding, if possible — context of reality, along with continuing efforts to integrate additional facts and widen the context even further.
Headed to the cabin for the weekend. Back with you later.
Oh, wait… It’s closing bell. Ha; I said I’d be lucky to finish the week at 0%, in light of Monday’s loss. Looks like I finish out somewhere between 1/2 and 1%, net. Not bad, having started off 8% in the hole.
