    1. My two fears are distortion and inaccuracy, or rather the kind of inaccuracy produced by too dogmatic a generality and too positivistic a localized focus

      These fears are reasonable considering how the majority of ancient civilizations relied on the oversimplification of certain ideas and the authoritarian style rule of absolute law. Their tendencies to wholeheartedly embrace the fabrication of reality with the overly simplistic good of God and evil of the Devil mentality led to many moral conflicts and confusion with other civilizations as well as their own and eventually resulted in their demise. Though the objective truth is not always the best thing to hear, I believe that it is much better to hear that than the simpler, happier reproduction.
