the war between objectivity and subjectivity

images-2

“Things are not to be judged good or bad merely because the public think so.” Objective criteria prevents confusion and pitfall. The public will always disappoint. What one person assesses as bad another may assess as good, where ethics are concerned. The message pushing through in modern times try to establish that good and bad change depending on the viewpoint. Subjectivity leaves you with a uncertain and non-definitive path to find the truth, and wouldn’t we rather the path be straightforward? Subjectivity leaves you with a shaky foundation to stand on when it comes to defending an argument. This quote seems to support that there is something higher than public opinion and societal expectations that we have to be accountable to. The public will always fall short somehow.
