pardon to keep posting but above comment makes a good point. i think that truth and peace have a couple different interpretations, including those we make up in our own minds, so that makes it a somewhat hard question to answer.
"Honest differences are often a healthy sign of progress. "
"You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."
Truth is just like anything else in life - it has its positives and it has it's negatives, depending on the circumstances.
And then there is a whole topic on what exactly is truth.
well yes. I meant more along the lines of a truth that has the potential to change the opinion of those who aren't as objective as others, mainly on a large-scale society level.
but yes, I think there's a positive and negative in everything ,no matter what. A balance of the two aspects could create peace, but I'm looking at it in an extreme sense. Like, what is better to persue in the world, ultimate truth and honesty or fudging the edges or even creating a cover-up in order to keep the masses at relative peace.
Much of a type question, I think. Interesting to see which type tends to answer in which direction.
