The Unsustainability of Equal But Opposite Falseness

by Dr. David Gruder

"Anything false always brings an equally false countermeasure." ~ From a Pathwork® lecture

Is not this equal-but-opposite falseness exactly what is being perpetrated on us each and every day by ideological extremists in politics, religion, business, marketing, the economy and the media?

Is this not the essence of most political campaigns? Of most attempts at legislation? Of most marketing campaigns?

Do you really believe that false assertions and equally false counter-assertions can create sustainable solutions? Of course not. Then stop allowing yourself to be manipulated by either side of the falseness equation.

How? By remembering that whenever a leader, expert or group adamantly insists that their position or solution is correct, and it is the complete opposite of  what other leaders, experts or groups adamantly insist, it means that all of them are asking the wrong question or attempting to manipulate for their own gain.
