    i dont think one can fully live out its existence without the other. at least in the most ideal sense, that is.

    then again what the fuck do i know

    I can't handle the truth. So leave me in peace.

    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.

    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.

    Truth is true peace of mind... There is an issue about what you would consider as truth... IMO People mistake truth for fact and thus lies the problem and the negatives..

    If you chose truth, while there might be temporary turmoil, I beleive that it will eventualy lead to a greater more meaningful peace. If you chose sincere peace, than that requires truth.

    Sorry you guys, I guess I didn't word it as clearly for others outside my head to understand. Haha, it made perfect sense to me, aparently not to everyine else.

    SO. Truth or Peace in ignorance? (the ignorance was a key part, believe it or not, haha)

    sorry about that.

    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.
