Helen Zille

The fact that people disagree on what the truth is only demonstrates that there is no objective truth, or at least that we don’t yet know what it is. Humanity’s search for the truth is precisely what has driven social progress throughout history. We investigate, debate and experiment and form opinions which we may believe to reflect truth. However, others then find different evidence, and make other arguments. Those who are open to reasons why they may be wrong are willing to re-assess their ‘truths’ and take society further. Those who will only consider reasons why they are right, stunt progress.
