Query

Who was it who first conceived the world's most stupid notion — that truth lies in the middle between extremes?

And what about the extreme truth? Or the extreme lie? Those could not exist under that premise, so God would not be able to exist, nor Communism.
And since God and Communism exist, fighting each other (the Marxist theory calls it the unity and struggle of irreconciliable adversaries) the extreme truth exists, and so does the most extreme of the lies....

So if I state a fact of something that I know to be true because I experienced it...then the truth of what happened to me isn't the truth?

So I'm not to believe or trust my own experience?

Some people have too much time to think up useless and stupid theories.

As Pilate asked Jesus.
What is truth? we are still in search of the truth, it surely isn't forthcoming from Castro's Cuba.

Pilate asked the right question of the right man, but, as the Bible notes, "would not stay for an answer."

Sadly, a great many commentators on Cuba are so vested in the lies that they, too, won't wait for an answer.

Had Pilate waited for the answer, we might know today what truth is, most truths as told by man are half lies.

Extremes are stupid! Thus, Cubans are stupid!
